Allow oversize tool was only needed with the ancient point-2-point operations. The new drilling operations have internal checks to allow oversize tools for tapping operations.

tapping under holemaking still shows gouging 5mm hole 6mm tap.
Allow oversize hole is in documentation for this.
Holemaking is a new operation, so where is this check box????

Try unchecking the Gouge Checking box in the Path Settings group of the operation dialog.

Don't disable "gouge checking" this is not a solution it is only a bad work-around.

Which NX 11 release do you really use?

How does the feature dialog in the geometry section of the tapping operation dialog look like?

At least NX 11.0.2 should check if the tapped drill diameter is correct for the selected tapping tool and avoid barking on you. This only applies for holes where the thread is not designed as a simplified thread, so that the tapping operation can get the information of the thread from the model.

Hole making drilling operations don't need this at all, since there are rules applied from the software.

The documentation only lists this for the ancient point-2-point operations, that where not smart enough.
