OVA / OVF Deployment Gets Stuck ‘Validating’

Problem

I had this problem (on sphere 6.7) the other day when trying to deploy some OVA files on my test network.

OVF Stuck Validating

Solution

Well as stated elsewhere I tried reconnecting to my vCenter using its FQDN, this didn’t solve the problem, using Flash or HTML5 didn’t cure the problem either. What did cure the problem was using a different browser! I switched from IE to Chrome and it worked fine.
