I'm having a hard time trying to recompose either an entire pool or a VM in the View Administrator.
The error I'm encountring is : "Provisioning error occurred for Machine xxxxxx : Refit operation resync failed", then the VM stops and i have to power it again via vSphere.
I tried to follow the VMware KB: Recomposing VMware View pool fails with error: Provisioning error occurred for Machin..., but no luck. My VC_CONFIG_ID is good in my SQL databse, and no change were recently made to my pools.
I've tried to recompose from an old snapshot which used to work : same error.
I've also tried to refresh then recompose, or reboot my View Composer server... same problem.
Please find attached the composer logs for this operation, featuring a FATAL error. I dit not find anything on this error yet...
Thank you in advance for your help.
Actually, forget what I said, I must have made a mistake yesturday, in fact I can specify my new snapshot as the default image, then delete my VM and allow it to be recreated. This works like a charm.
Only problem is : this manipulation loses the attribution of a user to a specific VM name, which may cause problems on my network (not sure of that).
I won't take any chance, and for the moment, I have to manually assign each user to his correct old VM name after deleting and recreating them. Is there a way I don't think of to avoid this problem ?
Did this ever get solved, I am experiencing the same thing. When I recompose it does a few desktops fine and then throws this error. If I remove a desktop it will re-create it fine
i had the same problem. The root cause was simple in my case - the snapshot i used had a mounted ISO File - that was causing the problem. It was enough to delete the snapshot and create a new one without anything mapped with the parent image
Erorr in the Composer logs

It is an issue with Bios UUId in the Vmx file is different than in Composer Database. Please file a Support Request and we need to change that Manually from the database
Anytime you had an issue with I moved it Copied and if you chose I copied it would change the Uuid anytime in the future make sure to chose I moved it.
