Deploy OVF: This action is not available for any of the selected objects at this time

I just tried to upload a OVF template to a new install of the vCSA 5.1 (Virtual Center Appliance) but kept getting the error message “Deploy OVF: This action is not available for any of the selected objects at this time”.

Deploy OVF Template Error

Deploy OVF Template Error – This action is not available for any of the selected objects at this time.

This problem is caused by the Client Integration Plugin not being installed. To install the plugin;

  1. login to the vSphere Web Client
  2. Click Help and then About VMware vSphere
  3. Click and download the Client Integration Plug-in (warning you will need to close your web browser)

After you have installed the plug-in you will be able to upload a OVF template.
