Suspended Virtual Machines with vCloud Director

I am seeing virtual machines going suspended by vCloud Director. Unfortunately, vCenter isn't given us additional information regarding why. I believe it is vCloud Director or vCenter that is doing this because the tasks/events is showing it is initiated by the account that is used in vCloud Director to connect to vCenter. There are no other task/events prior to the suspend virtual machine task.

Thank you.

How have you determined that it's vCloud Director that's the culprit? Is it because it shares the Administrator username/pass? (if so, make a dedicated one)

When in doubt - always check the /opt/vmware/cloud-director/logs/vcloud-container-debug.log for anything you're not seeing through the UI.

Does this have something to do with the runtime lease you configured for the Org/vApp?

Yes, it had something to do with the lease. Not sure why the default is 7 days!! I have changed everything to no expiration and that should do it. Thanks for your help.

Click on properties of the organization and under the policies tab. There are the lease times.
