Ok, so I think the building machine workflow stub has a non-existent vCO workflow associated with it. You'll need to run a vCO workflow to remove it.

Under the 'Extensibility' folder in vCO, there's a workflow called 'Remove State Change Workflow From a Blueprint and it's Virtual Machines".

Right click on this, and run it against the blueprint you are having trouble with. Make sure you select 'BuildingMachine' from the first menu of the workflow.

Hope this helps

Have a look under the Infrastructure/Monitoring/Log menu, see if there are any events listed there.

It looks like you've modified the building workflow stub to do some customization of the blueprint, is that right?

It looks as though you've extended the building machine workflow stub, with a VCO workflow that doesn't exist.

Can you take a screenshot from your VCO instance. Show the workflow runs from the BuildingMachine workflow.

It should be under:

Library\vCloud Automation Center\Infrastructure Administration\Extensibility\WFStubBuildingMachine

Thanks

Please take a screenshot of the workflows under the 'Extensibility\Workflow Stubs' folder. I need to see the WFStubBuildingMachine workflow.

Thanks

Can you expand the WFStubBuildingMachine workflow, so I can see the list of times it has run?

Ok,

vCAC has some built in workflows that do all the basics you need to build and deploy VMs. However, if you have your own needs that aren't met through vCAC on it's own, you can call out to vCO to run vCO workflows as part of the vCAC deployment.

There's a lot of detail, and many options, you can read more about them here:

vCloud Automation Center Documentation

From what I can tell, somehow you had configured the blueprint to call a vCO workflow during the BuildingMachine phase. For whatever reason, the workflow that was being called didn't exist, which was creating the error message you saw.
