SPS NotEnoughLicenses error in vCloud Director debug log

Building a new vCloud Director environment today, I was experiencing issues trying to deploy a new vAPP. Every time I deployed a vAPP I got the error Failed to Create. So what was going on?  I could deploy VMs in vSphere, vCloud Director was deploying the VMs in vSphere, and I could power them on manually from vSphere!?!. Clicking on the error gave me no information at all, and it showed that the VM was successfully being deployed too!   I needed to take a look at the log files on the VCD cell to see whats happening.  I SSH’d to the cell and issued the following commands: cd /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/logs cat vcloud-container-debug.log | grep -i error 2013-01-14 10:44:10,288 | ERROR    | sf-activity-pool-2 | SpbmServiceImpl | SPS NotEnoughLicenses failure of 1 attempts to make SPS call at VC 2013-01-14 10:44:12,288 | ERROR    | sf-activity-pool-2 | SpbmServiceImpl | SPS NotEnoughLicenses failure of […]

How to add a new storage profile to an existing PvDC in vCloud Director 5.1

I got asked a question by @erikbussink today about whether you can add in newly created storage profile to an already existing Provider VDC (PvDC). I initially looked in the wrong area for this, and answered no! However after opening my eyes, I realised that it is actually possible and I should have realised straight away.

To add a new profile follow the steps below: Login to vCloud Director Select Manage and Monitor Select Provider VDC Select Storage Profiles from the tab along the top Click the green + (plus) and you will be prompted with the add storage profile window Select the storage profile, click add and then ok You will then see the new storage profile assigned with a green tick showing you […]

Refresh Storage Profiles in vCloud Director 5.1

Refresh Storage Profiles in vCloud Director 5.1

I noticed a very handy new menu item in vCloud Director 5.1 today. Refresh Storage profiles.  If you are creating Storage Profiles in vCenter, they dont show up in vCD immediately, which can be a bit frustrating if you are wanting to immediately assign those Storage Profiles.  The steps below show you how to refresh the storage profiles, so that they are immediately available in vCD after you have created them.  If your wondering how to create Storage Profiles in vCenter, Frank Denneman has written a really great article on storage profiles, its definitely worth the read. Login to vCD Click Manage & Monitor Select vCenters Right click on the vCenter you want to refresh and select Refresh Storage Profiles You will now see the storage profiles available when creating a new PvDC Please Note: You will not see any Storage Profiles displayed under Storage Profiles until they have been assigned to […]
