      Trying to deploy any blueprint in a tenant I get the following error as the requester:

       

      "A server error was encountered Error requesting machine. Nullable object must have a value.."

       

      Looking in the log viewer I get:

      From the C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\Model Manager Web\Logs\Repository log on the IaaS server I can see the blueprint request and the following stack trace:

      Any ideas on what could be the nullable object that requires a value?
