VCF 5.1.0 - Cloud Builder fails at "Create Transport Node Collection" after 5 hours. :-(

Trying to bring-up a 4-node nested 5.1.0 (ESA) management cluster in my lab and I am getting a failure at the at "Create Transport Node Collection" stage.

Looking in NSX-T manager, I see:

Message is " Error: Failed to install software on host. Solution apply failed on host: 'vcf-m02-esxi-303.vcf.momusconsulting.com' Failed to apply Component nsx-lcp-bundle(4.1.2.1.0-8.0.22667792): an error occurred while enabling service nsx-mpa.Solution apply failed on host: 'vcf-m02-esxi-303.vcf.momusconsulting.com' "

 

I have never had an issue with 4.5.0 or 5.0.0 bring-ups, but they have obv. been OSA deployments. So am going to repeat the 5.1.0 bring-up, but with an OSA cluster this time.

 

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I am going to backup this broken bring-up, so I can come back to it if I need to.

 

Cheers

Update. The 5.1.0 bring-up using vSAN OSA worked perfectly and completed in just 2H 36M

ESA = vLCM Cluster Image is required

OSA = vLCM Cluster Image is optional (and was NOT selected in this deployment)
