Last week I was having problems creating a Provider vDC in VMware’s vCloud Director… Here’s the error I was getting
Even though the installation was followed step-by-step from documentation, I was still getting this error… After working with VMware Cloud Technical Support, we were able to resolve the issue. The problem is that when I initially named the VCD System Name I gave it the “exact” name of the VM guest running VCD.
The VCD Installed ran fine — and the installation was successful, — with the exception of errors when creating Provider vCD’s.
So, when you are naming your vCD, give it a unique name—- that will never conflict with the name of a VM guest that exists — or would ever exist…
I will post an update here— once the VMware KB article is created and published.
