Organization vDC name

Jump to solution

Hi,

is there any rule or something that Organization vDC name can't have characters like space?

Let's say I have organization named "Test vDC" and the name is accepted by vCD. But when I am using PowerCLI to get VMs in this vDC its not working because the field Organization vDC is empty. If I change the name to "Test_vDC" its working OK.

Example

PS C:\user\PowerShell\vCD> get-civm -Org test | select Name, OrgVdc

Name        OrgVdc

----        ------

Photon      TestvDC

Server-2019 test2

SRV-2016-T… test

SRV-2016-T… TestvDC

SRV-2016-T… TestvDC

SRV-2019-t… TestvDC

PS C:\user\PowerShell\vCD> get-civm -Org test | select Name, OrgVdc

Name        OrgVdc

----        ------

Photon

Server-2019 test2

SRV-2016-T… test

SRV-2016-T…

SRV-2016-T…

SRV-2019-t…

Its that a bug in PowerCLI or documentation should have some more details about naming (I only noticed the length limit)?

Besides the length restriction, I'm not aware of any other rules.

Since the name with the blank is accepted, I would assume it is a PowerCLI issue.

I suggest you open an SR.

Contrary to what GSS might claim, you do not need a Developer Support contract for PowerCLI support.
Point them to PowerCLI Support Breakdown, more specifically para 3 & 4
