After requesting a VM via a blueprint I have setup to clone from template i get a message simply saying this has failed, looking in the recent events section I see a message stating:
clone vm sequence contains no matching element
Does anybody have any idea what this means or where I might of gone wrong.
Apologies if this is a silly question, Im a newbie with regards to VCAC.
Try going to Administration -> Monitoring -> Logs / Any other tab there
(sorry if path is not accurate, i'm not in front of an active system at the moment)
there should be some more indicative logging in that section. Try again and look for a new entry, or search for the exact time the last request failed.
what does it say?
Not sure if it's relevant, but it came across this error myself. I found reference to it in the release notes for VCAC 5.2. It appears to happen, if the source template for a clone, is on a local datastore of an ESX host, rather than a shared datastore. I haven't had a chance to test this myself yet...
Yes this area is where I see the message:
Machine dev006: CloneVM : Sequence contains no matching element.
The problem is I don't know what this message means, googling it gives me no clue.
So I'm hoping someone on here knows what it means or can give me some ideas on where to look for more indepth logging that may give me an idea on what is going wrong.
