I am settings up a vCloud Director in a single box on local storage. Problem is: When vCloud Director "prepare"s the host it tries to put it into maintenance mode which - of course - fails, as cloud director, vcenter, etc etc has to be running on the host. I tried the manual installation via ESXi Shell but still vCloud Director does show the host as prepared.
thanks for the link but I don't see how it could help me. The author describes the manual installation of vCloud Agent and that is exactly what I did. He doesn't talk about howto actually get vCD to see the host as prepared.
