    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I just cannot get this to work.

     

    vRO is able to find the __reservationPolicyID property during the request workflow and even updates it to the reservation policy successfully.  However it does not take into effect.  The request just randomly selects a reservation to build onto since I had to clear the reservation policy off the blueprint for this to work. 

     

    I feel like I'm close, but this is got my scratching my head right now.  I've modified properties multiple times before on other workflows and in this workflow but this reservation policy ID has got me stumped.

     

    I'm running 7.3 currently.

    Hello,

     

    We have been struggling with vRA 7 in a distributed deployment. We have had many issues with appliances crashing and things not failing over properly. During the upgrade from 7.0 to 7.0.1 and after a reboot of the primary appliance, it did not come back up with all services registered. I was able to repair this by refreshing the SSO settings from the vra management console on the primary appliance. Things seem to be back and stable (for the moment), but I noticed while checking on the cluster status that since the upgrade, the last connected status on the cluster page in vRA management console is not updating. It just stays stuck at "7 hours". I am worried that the cluster is not communicating properly. Has anyone else experienced this?

  • 05/31/18--02:00: vRealize LogInsight
  •   Hi just rolled out Log Insight into our environment And added our VRA 7 to the Agent As you can see from the screen shot I am getting Events sent to Log Insight.

     

    What my problem is that Log Insight isn't showing any Catalog requests that are requested within VRA, as you can see from my screen shot.

    Hi,

     

    In my environment we have several VLANs, some of which are for Backup, others for Management and the larger group for Service. Normally a VLAN has a corresponding /24 subnet. So, my network profiles in VRA are an entire /24 subnet which connects to a DVS portgroup to its VLAN.

     

    The problem is that I have lots of Management and Service VLANs but I don't really care where the VMs connect, nor wan't to give the user the oportunity to choose.

     

    The issue is that we install ~100 VMs per month, and the subnets will get consumed too fast and require manual intervention often. What I want to achieve is group the Management VLANs o one side and the Service VLANs on another, and connect the NICs of each VM to these groups, and not to any specific Profile. So when we ran out of IPs we just add a Network Profile to the group we need.

     

    Is it possible to achieve this? Any idea how?

    Hello All,

     

    Having random issues with workflows failing, related to our powershell host via vRA event subscription orchestrator tasks that create MS DNS entries using dnscmd .

    This issue happens consistently when launching 3 or more catalog item requests simultaneously in vRA.

     

    We are using the Add DNS Record workflow from PSCoE (on solution exchange), after switching over from using run script in guest, which was overly complex for such a simple task, and also was experiencing the same issue as above.

     

    Turned on vmtools logging, switched powershell hosts, the symptoms are consistent.

    It looks like there are collisions/contention issues with the powershell script copy to the host before execution.

    We tried adding random timers to the workflow, which only reduces the problem but doesn't eliminate them altogether.

    Has anyone seen this kind of behavior before?

     

    Any feedback or alternative methods would be welcomed and appreciated.

     

     

    Thanks and Cheers...

    I am struggling to find a way to change the owner of a deployment (and all it's child items) using vRO.

    changeowner.PNG

    To put this into context, I am using XaaS blueprints where the associated workflow makes a call to System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vcaccafe.request").requestCatalogItemWithProvisioningRequest to send a custom request to vRA. I am using a 'service helper' account that requests 'hidden' blueprints that only this account is entitled for.

     

    I have tried setting the following Custom props on the request:

    Cafe.Shim.VirtualMachine.AssignToUser

    VirtualMachine.Admin.Owner

     

    These fields apply as expected but the deployment and component resources are still owned by this service account and not the user that requested the XaaS blueprint.

     

    I have used the RequestedFor field but this requires that the requestor also have an entitlement to the 'hidden' blueprints, which I do not want as users would see duplication in the service catalog.

     

    Does anyone know if there is an API within vRO that I can use to achieve this or does it not exist for vRA 7?

     

    Thanks,

  • 08/08/18--08:24: Terraform vRA Deployments
  • Looking for some assistance with deploying blueprints using Terraform with the vra7 provider. I have followed the setup instructions here, have the provider initialised, and can provision machines using blueprints already configured in vRA using the following very basic main.tf file:

     

    provider  "vra7" {

        username = "serviceaccount"

        password  = "password"

        tenant = "tenant"

        host = "https://vrahost"

    }

     

    resource "vra7_resource" "machine" {

      catalog_name = "UbuntuTerraformDeployment"

    }

     

    However when I try and add any variables such as the ones below, I have tried them all individually:

     

    provider  "vra7" {

        username = "serviceaccount"

        password  = "password"

        tenant = "tenant"

        host = "https://vrahost"

    }

     

    resource "vra7_resource" "machine" {

      catalog_name = "UbuntuTerraformDeployment"

     

      catalog_configuration = {

        lease_days = 1

      }

     

      resource_configuration = {

        vSphere_Machine_1.description = "Deployed using Terraform"

        vSphere_Machine_1.cpu = 4

        vSphere_Machine_1.memory = 8192

      }

     

      deployment_configuration = {

        description = "Terraform test deployment"

        reasons = "Testing Terraform"

      }

    }

     

    I get:

     

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TERRAFORM CRASH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    Terraform crashed! This is always indicative of a bug within Terraform.

    A crash log has been placed at "crash.log" relative to your current

    working directory. It would be immensely helpful if you could please

    report the crash with Terraform[1] so that we can fix this.

     

    When reporting bugs, please include your terraform version. That

    information is available on the first line of crash.log. You can also

    get it by running 'terraform --version' on the command line.

     

    [1]: https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues

     

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TERRAFORM CRASH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    Any tips where I am going wrong would be appreciated.

  • 08/08/18--08:20: vRA - Custom Property doubt
  • I am having this doubt. I know that this policy VirtualMachine.Admin.HostSelectionPolicy can be used to specify in which host the VM will be deployed.

     

    Can you add more than one host as value for example separed with commas? "esxi-01,esxi-02"

     

    I have seen an article where somebody resolves this using the same A record pointing to different IPs of different ESXi. But this cannot be used because in case one of the ESXi is down the request will fail.

    Hello Guys

    In VRA 7.4 it is possible to customize the approver's portal where you see the requirement made by the user. 

    I have a blueprint that by default is provisioned in a cluster and we need the approver to modify the requirement and reassign the cluster where the provisioning of the VM. 

    it is possible to perform this task.

     

    Regards

    Hi,

    I have a weird problem with vRA 7.3. Just upgraded to 7.4 but it didn't help. My blueprint works fine, but if I add a lease time to the blue print I cannot browse the deployment components.

    Same thing when browsing the machines tab.

     

    Also if I destroy the deployment it fails. If I destroy with force enabled the deployment is removed but the virtual machine from vcenter is not.

    Log file shows REST API issues with connecting to IaaS server.

    Anyone had the same problem?

     

    Regards,

    Hi,

     

    I'm using vRA and vRO 7.3.0 and I want to get the detail of a catalog item request from vRO. I want to have access to request information, like in vRA. For example, for a machine blueprint request, vRA shows us CPU, components description, custom properties, etc. All user inputs are available:

    request_details.png

     

    I try to get the same information using vRO or the vRA API but without success. I can get some request common information, but not the detail of the input form like above.

     

    I'm using this API call to get the request : https://{{va-fqdn}}/catalog-service/api/consumer/requests?$filter=requestedFor eq '{{username@domain}}'

    I think that data I want should be in the "requestData" section, it's why I understand here: https://communities.vmware.com/thread/535074#2599862. But all that I have is something like this:

     

    "requestData": {

    "entries": [

    {

    "key": "provider-_leaseDays",

    "value": null

    },

    {

    "key": "provider-vSphere__vCenter__Machine_1",

    "value": {

    "type": "complex",

    "componentTypeId": null,

    "componentId": null,

    "classId": null,

    "typeFilter": null,

    "values": {

    "entries": []

    }

    }

    },

    {

    "key": "provider-vSphere__vCenter__Machine_2",

    "value": {

    "type": "complex",

    "componentTypeId": null,

    "componentId": null,

    "classId": null,

    "typeFilter": null,

    "values": {

    "entries": []

    }

    }

    }

    ]

    }

     

    Not very useful. When I get the request with vRO (either with vCACCAFEEntitiesFinder or vCACCAFECatalogConsumerRequestService) I have the same result.

     

    I know that data I need are somewhere (I can see it in vRA), but I have no idea where to look for it.

     

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi all,

     

    I read several posts and did not find any answer...

     

    Is there any way to force a confirmation on a deployment destroy action ?

    We do not want to involve any business group manager or any administrator. Just want to force the requestor to double check his request before submitting it.

    If I am not wrong, approval policies do not really fullfil this need as they do not allow the requestor to do anything....

     

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi everyone

     

    I was having the problem that it would never load the detail view of Azure VMs in the Items tab of vRA. After finding this discussion (vRealize Automation Forum - VMware {code} ) I increased the timeout and now it works. But the fact that I now have to wait 50-60 seconds until I see the detail view of the Azure VM is not really nice.

    The Azure Environment has only around 5 VMs so there is not that much data to load. I've attached the catalina.out snipped for the time, when the Detail Screen loads. The detail screen popped up at around 14:57 but at 14:28:24 was the last log entry. What I found strange is the message "More than one default vCO servers are registered. Picking the first one", although there is only an embedded vCO.

    Could this be a problem? What else could slow the lookup down?

     

    Thanks & Greetings

    Philippe

    Hi,

     

    I'm currently working with vRealize Automation 7.4.0 and vRealize Orchestrator 7.4.0 and try to understand why makes any call from vRA to vRO action that has a parameter taking between 1.5 to 2 seconds.

    On action side, it just returns the sent element, so no compute time involved.

     

    Is-there anything that can be tuned to speed up the exchanges between vRA and vRO and improve user experience ?

     

    Thanks for your ideas !

    We are attempting to install the EPI Agent for BMC BladeLogic on our BladeLogic Console server.  The agent is not letting me progress at the Install and Configure Proxy Agent section when entering our IaaS server and port.  I receive an error of "Cannot Validate Manager Server host. The remote machine certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure"

    Is there a VMTN community for vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM)?

    Hello,

     

    I'm currently working with vRealize Automation 7.4.0 and vRealize Orchestrator 7.4.0 and I didn't find any way to get actions feeding multiple fields without any link between them to be run in parallel.

     

    Is-there some parameter that can be tune somewhere in order to start running all actions as fast as possible instead of waiting that each started action has ended before starting the next one ?

    Something that leads quickly to long loading times...

     

    Thanks for your ideas !

    Hi

     

    Is there a way to copy a file from a Windows Share to the vRA Appliance using a vRO workflow?

    I need this because I have to read and process the content of these files. But maybe there are better ways to do this.

     

     

    Thanks.

    Andi
