The URL /ha-nfc/52c6d592-7636-67c5-29f3-d5b373be4f42/disk-0.vmdk looks
like the lease you get during OVA import on the ESX server to upload a
disk image to, isn't it? I'm not sure why you would get and Forbidden
error from the server here. Are you logged in with an restricted user
account instead of the root account?

Are you trying to upload directly to the root of the datastore? IIRC
this isn't allowed and you can only upload subdirectories in the
datastore as in
