Question

Minimum image size


Hi

Nutanix version: 5.6

Is there a minimum size for images to upload? I can easily upload images from 64mb to +200 mb in size. I also have a small 900 kb iso, but the upload fails.

I can reproduce this both through the web interface and rest interface. The worst part is that the upload is actually reported is being ok (I get 200 OK from uploading it via the v3 rest interface), but I can see under tasks the the upload fails. The message from the task failure is "Image upload failed", which is not very helpful.

I probed this a bit more by creating some images of different sizes:

16 mb upload works fine
11 mb upload fails.

So someone has put in an arbitrary limit for small images can be it seems.

Is there any way to bypass this check?
