Getting error "com.vmware.vcloud.sdk.VCloudException: Resource not found" for vdc.instantiateVappTemplate API call with vCD server 5.1.

Jump to solution


I am getting error "com.vmware.vcloud.sdk.VCloudException: Resource not found" for vdc.instantiateVappTemplate API call with vCD server 5.1.I tried this with both vCD client 1.5 and 5.1. Please advise.

Following is the code snippet

InstantiateVAppTemplateParamsType parameters = new InstantiateVAppTemplateParamsType();

parameters.setName(vappName);
parameters.setSource(vappTemplate.getReference());
parameters.setInstantiationParams(networkParams);
vdc.instantiateVappTemplate(parameters);

Hi,

Instead of queryReferences() use the queryIdRecords() method.

ReferenceResult refRes = queryService.queryIdRecords(QueryRecordType.ADMINORGVDC);

for (RecordResult<QueryResultAdminOrgVdcRecordType> vr : refRes.getRecords()) {
                if (vr.getName().equals(vdcName)) {
                    vdc = Vdc.getVdcById(admin, vr.getId());

}

This way you need not worry about whether the returned reference(containing href, mediatype and name) is User API/Admin API.

ORGVDC - Org/Tenant user query - This will work if you are a Org Admin/User.

ADMINORGVDC - System Admin user query - This will work if you are a System Admin.

Rajesh Kamal.

Hi,

The instantiate vapptemplate operation is a user API operation(vdc). I see that you are doing it as an admin API operation(admin/vdc)

    https://vCD5.1_Server/api/admin/vdc/6ce10d02-746c-4c7e-a66b-c172d5990a28/action/instantiateVAppTempl...

In the sample code snippet -

    vdc.instantiateVappTemplate(parameters);

    How did you get the vdc object. Can you also post the code snippet for that.

    I think you created this using Vdc helper but with an admin vdc reference. It should have been with a vdc reference.

Regards,

Rajesh Kamal.

Thanks Rajesh for the reply. You are correct i am using QueryReferenceType.ADMINORGVDC as below. Through rest i could successfully deploy a vApp after changing the url as you suggested.

ReferenceResult refRes = queryService.queryReferences(QueryReferenceType.ADMINORGVDC);

for (ReferenceType vr : refRes.getReferences()) {
                if (vr.getName().equals(vdcName)) {
                    vdc = Vdc.getVdcByReference(admin, vr);

}

Through SDK i changed the line as below, but it didnot provide any references in the result hence vApp deploy failed. Is there any configuration issue at vCD side? Any clue?

ReferenceResult refRes = queryService.queryReferences(QueryReferenceType.ORGVDC);

Thanks,

Amit

even through rest,

https://VCD-Server/api/query?type=orgVdc    doesnot return any rentries.

Wheras https://10.128.238.12/api/query?type=adminOrgVdc   return the expected entries.

In vCloud portal i can see VDCs present under the organization

Have one more query, is there any way to get the vCenter (UUID) information in which the vAPP got deploy?  i got following query but it will provide all the vCenters registerd under the vCD.

https://vCD-server/api/query?type=virtualCenter

Thanks,

Amit
