vSphere 6.5 Upload Fails

Let me start by saying this:  I hate VCSA 6.5.  I hate the fact that I have to use Flash (which EVERYONE is dropping support for) to manage my enterprise environment.  Flash and Java… good riddance.  I didn’t even realize I didn’t have Flash installed until I had to manage this stupid thing and needed the plugin for IE11.

I recently upgraded(?) my Windows vCenter 6.0 installation to VCSA 6.5.  I couldn’t get the migration to work and this is just at home, so I did a clean install, recreated my 6.0 environment, and reattached my hosts to the new vCenter.  One of the things that I’ve been struggling with since then is not being able to deploy new OVAs or upload files to my datastores (short of just using scp).  Scouring the internet, I came across a couple of VMware KB articles that solved my issues:

This one talks about the issue and this one solves it.  Basically you have to either setup a valid cert on the VCSA or trust the built-in one signed by the VCSA CA.  Now I can even use Edge (for now) to access vCenter.
