Deploy OVF From COn |VMware Communities


Hello,

I am trying to deploy the NSX-T ovf file from the content library using the vCenter API CallPOST https://{server}/rest/com/vmware/vcenter/ovf/library-item/id:{ovf_library_item_id}?~action=deploy.  What I have done is use the filter method to extract all of the params and configs needed to deploy the ovf file.  But I am getting the error below:

{

  “value”: {

    “error”: {

      “warnings”: [],

      “information”: [],

      “errors”: [

        {

“category”: “SERVER”,

“error”: {

“@class”: “com.vmware.vapi.std.errors.invalid_argument”,

“messages”: [

{

“args”: [

“”

],

“default_message”: “An invalid argument “” was specified.”,

“id”: “com.vmware.vdcs.util.invalid_argument”

}

]

}

        }

      ]

    },

    “succeeded”: false

  }

}

 

I am looking for a bit of help to understand where the invalid argument is in the payload below:
