    I've just started with the Automation RESTapi and I've already run into a problem. Step 1 is requesting a HTTP Bearer Token. I user the like from the documentation:


    curl --insecure -H "Accept: application/json" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' --data '{"username":"","password":"vra-user-password","tenant":""}' https://$vRA/identity/api/tokens


    I fill in the correct variables and I get: curl: (6) Could not resolve host: application


    Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?


    Kind regard,

    I have a need to dynamically assign the reservation policy after a request has been submitted based on the type of catalog item requested and business group membership of the user. I have created vRO workflows that select the appropriate reservation policy, but I cannot get it to apply the the deployment using the "ReservationPolicyId" property or the hidden "__reservationPolicyID" property. I have attempted these properties through an output of the vRO workflow as a properties object and also using "System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vcac").addUpdatePropertyFromVirtualMachineEntity". Other properties such as setting the VM Folder, setting custom attributes or setting CPU/Mem sizes work properly. It seems to me as though this property is referenced prior to my setting it and therefore is ignored. I am using the EBS topic "Machine provisioning" with the conditions in the image below.


    I look forward to your assistance! Thank you.

    Hey all -


    Went into our non-load balanced vRA setup to find some funkiness in the UI about Model Manager within the Infrastructure tab.  I rebooted the IaaS VM and the error persisted.  So, I rebooted the vRA appliance.


    Coming back up, elastisearch came by saying it could not start and other services either took a long time or did not start.  Once up, I logged in as root and check disk space with df -h to find that / was full.  I added a disk to the VM, took a snapshot, and moved some log files - /var/log was 35G.  Rebooted, figured everything would be fine, except it's still not happy.


    I spent a couple hours searching logs for blatant errors but everything is pretty generic.  When I try to log into https://fqdn-vra/ I get the "VMware vRealize Automation Appliance" page.  So that works.  When I click the "vRealize Automation console" link I get a page with a heading "Identity Manager" and "The page you were looking for is not available. You may need to contact your administrator with this error: 404 Page Not Found."


    So, clearly vIDM or whatever is not running.  Checking services on https://fqdn-vra:5480 is full of a bunch of FAILED and no status.






















    Everything else has no status.


    Right now, at this point, / has 10% free, so I don't think it's a disk space issue any longer.  All of the other mount points in df -h have very low % utilized.


    in VAMI under vRA Host Settings, the cert is not expired, SSO info says "Configured - working connected", the DB is connected, under licensing it shows "Error connecting to server. Is vRA running?"


    Maybe someone has seen this before or is good at troubleshooting vRA?  Appreciate any help!

    I am using the following script to run the powershell script as different domain user which is something not working as vRA software component (install section) but works fine manually. Any help?


    Note: Before the following script, I am executing domain join script as software component in which the following script depend on domain join script.


    #Prepare credential to use

    $domUser = "domain\serviceaccount"

    $password = ConvertTo-SecureString -String "$password" -AsPlainText -Force

    $cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ($domUser,$password)



    #Input parameters

    $powerLoc = "C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe"

    $workDir = "C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\"

    $arguments = "-file C:\Users\Public\script.ps1","-NoExit"

    $outError = "C:\Users\Public\ErrorOut.txt"

    $outFile = "C:\Users\Public\Success.txt"



    #Run the script as domain service account

    Start-Process -FilePath $powerLoc -ArgumentList $arguments -Credential $cred -RedirectStandardOut $outFile -RedirectStandardError $outError -WorkingDirectory $workDir -Wait

  • 11/14/17--14:38: Revert Snapshot example
  • I'm trying to find an example of reverting a snapshot (I create a single snapshot at start of VM life and then use Revert as a cleansing mechanism for developing software deployment scripts).


    I have coded up (in Ansible) the various REST API calls to get the bearer token and machine details but can not find a good example of how to find the snapshot ID's for the machine, which seems to be the required parameter for the REST call

    Yep team,


    We need yet your help.

    We have an existing RESERVATION with Networks & Networks profiles associated.





    Now from vRO we want to UNcheck (remove) some networks of this reservation.


    We don't find any TOPIC or DOC about this management from vRO....


    We have only found one post with POWERvra :

    remove a network profile you can pass an empty string to the NetworkProfile parameter.

    Get-vRAReservation -Name "Reservation01" | Set-vRAReservationNetwork -NetworkPath "VM Network" -NetworkProfile ""


    How can we update vRA reservation from vRO ?


    Thx for your help.

    I've been googeling around and have come up with nothing....


    Does anyone know how to create a new Active directory Policy in vRA 7.3 from vRO?




    0 0

    Hi guys - I have a vRA setup using Active Directory with IWA.  It's been working 100% fine.  My credentials for the sync are fine and working.  All of a sudden, it won't sync the directory.  I get "Failed to complete dry run".  When I go to the sync log for this directory, I see "Could not pull the required object from Identity Manager."


    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    How to generate Snapshot list created before 1 year from now using vRops? Even after changing time settings , the data is not right. Can we use a powercli script to generate the list or dashboard?

    I have a blueprint which creates a new linux server.


    At the first step, the user who requests the server fills the relevant fields like server name, location etc.

    Moreover, he has the ability to extend the default disk and to add more disks to his server request (storage tab).


    The next step is to approve the request.

    I created an approval policy: Service Catalog - Catalog Item Request - Virtual Machine.

    This approval policy uses an event subscription which runs a workflow which does some manipulation on the user's information.

    At the end the approver receives in his Inbox --> Manual User Action the request.

    All the fileds (server name, localtion etc) are full with the information (after the manipulation of the workflow).


    My question is: how can I pass the information of the storage allocation?

    I saw there are properties named: Cafe.Shim.VirtualMachine.TotalStorageSize or VirtualMachine.Disk.Size

    but these properties can be used only after the creation of the virtual machine.


    So how can I present the storage allocation of the user in the approval step?

    Really weird error I'm getting.  I'm modifying my workflow stubs to EBS payloads.  I've done it in my test envionrment with success, so i'm working on my production side now.  Of course I'm getting a new error that I'm not sure what it is.  It's literally erroring on my first display properties action, to just pull in properties. 


    It's giving me an error:


    [2018-05-08 13:05:12.482] [E] Workflow: Create Server Name / Get Properties (item1) : ch.dunes.model.type.ConvertorException: Unable to convert object, '474c46d7-08f8-4558-a62d-8b2eccff4f1d' plugin unexcepted exception : Bad type syntax 'string'

    [2018-05-08 13:05:12.554] [E] Workflow execution stack:


    If i look in the variables, that object is relating to the __asd_targetResourceId.
