When attempting to upload a disk image directly, I get a 'network error'

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When attempting to upload a disk directly, I get the following error:
Unable to upload image to disk <DISK-ID> due to a network error. Make sure ovirt-imageio-proxy service is installed and configured, and ovirt-engine's certificate is registered as a valid CA in the browser.
  • In the messages file on the manager, we see:
