vCloud Director: Can't deploy vShield Edge VM

Jump to solution

Doing an Eval of vCloud Director.

When I try to create an Organization Network, it fails with the following error message:

Error creating Shield network appliance.

- Error creating Edge VM.

- Internal Server Error

- java.security.cert.CertificateException: Host certificate thumbprint did not match expected value

- Host certificate thumbprint did not match expected value

In vCenter, I can see that it attempts to deploy OVF template, but the task fails with status "The task was canceled by a user".

Anyone see this before? Any idea how to resolve?

In VC, go to Administration, vCenter Server Settings, SSL Settings, and make sure that all of the hosts have checkboxes checked

Note that if you don't insert a proper vShield Edge license in vCenter the system will give you a black eye with a misleading message when deploying the edge. Off the top of my head I can't remember if the message it vomits is the one you report below though.

However it's good to double check you have the proper Edge license inserted correctly too.

403 forbidden = no license

something about thumbprint = ssl checkboxes
