vCloud setup failing

Jump to solution

Sigh…. vCloud deployment keeps failing me whatever I try. I’m deploying the OVA appliance as primary small node, but it keeps failing the installation. After the OVA is deployed, I get the message: “No nodes found in cluster, this likely means PostgreSQL is not running on this node. Consult the management UI from another node where PostgreSQL is running. Otherwise, check /opt/vmware/var/log/vcd/vcd_ova_ui_app.log if you think this is an error.“.

When I check the logs, I find the following info:

setupvcd.log

2020-05-25 13:55:35 | [ERROR] Failed to run firstrunwizard.sh. See /opt/vmware/var/log/vcd/firstrunwizard.log for details. Aborting.

Looking at the NFS share, I do see the following contents:

root@vasdb001 [ /opt/vmware/var/log/vcd ]# ls -l /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/data/transfer/

total 8

drwxr-xr-x 3 vcloud vcloud 4096 May 25 13:54 appliance-nodes

-rw------- 1 vcloud vcloud  427 May 25 13:55 responses.properties

So install was able to write something in the NFS share. Permissions on NFS should be correct I think.

Looking in ” /opt/vmware/var/log/vcd/firstrunwizard.log”

Tried this with OVA VMware_Cloud_Director-10.1.0.4837-15967253_OVF10 and VMware_vCloud_Director-10.0.0.4649-15450333_OVF10.

Issue has been solved..... turns out the e-mail address that is asked for in the OVA wizard is a requirement. i left it blank because SMTP hadn't been setup yet and I wanted to enter the e-mail address later on.
