service vmware-vcd restart
so, how to resolve ?
I ran into a similar situation where a vApp would not start because vCloud Director 1.5 couldn't find the right sysprep files for Windows XP x64. I had previously provided the correct sysprep files based on http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=100559... and then ran createSysprepPackage.sh which completed successfully.
What's odd is that the MS site http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=8287 talks about that version of sysprep being for Windows Server 2003 SP2 x64 (and not XP x64).
So then I grabbed an XP x64 CD and copied the contents of deploy.cab to the vCD server and reran createSysprepPackage.sh which completed successfully. Still had the same error trying to power on the vApp.
I then tried service vmware-vcd restart but it failed to shut down the service.
I then rebooted the vCD server which resolved the issue. Unfortunately, I don't know if the fix was the server reboot, the replacement sysprep files from the XP x64 CD, or both.
This is usually due to no hosts having hte host agent. I think I saw this at another customer and a reboot of the hosts resovled it to reset the vCD agent. Or not all hosts are on the same DVSwitch or seeing the same storage.
