You must have upgraded vCloud / the vCloud plug-in to 5.1, right ?

With vCD 5.1 it is necessary to create a vApp network first (there is a library workflow for that) and bind it to the organization VDC network.

There is no other way around it.

yes we have installed a plugin vCloud plug-in to 5.1

I too think we are now forced to create a vApp network first I don't know why Smiley Sad

There were some changes in the API at the network level. For example before you had Organization Networks and not Organization VDC networks.

Start by using the "Add a vApp Network" workflow - this will allow you to get something into your vApp to connect your VMs to. When you add it, set the fenceMode to Bridged. Once you have done that, then you can take that new vAppNetwork and connect the VM(s) to it using the "Wire a virtual machine network" workflow. These are the steps required when working through the api as the plug-in does. WIthin the vCD UI, this is what is done behind the scenes when you tell a VM to connect to an Org vDC Network.

I've run into a similar issue after we upgraded to vCD 5.1 - the "WireVM" section of our orchestrator workflow no longer works.  What troubles me is that we did not upgrade the Orchestrator vCD plug-in.  We are still using the vCD 1.5 plug-in which I assume should allow our workflows to work.  Is this a bug?

I advise against using the 1.5 plug-in with vCloud Director 5.x due to the numerous changes in the api and object changes.. in particular, the older workflows try connecting to vCloud Organization Networks and the newer one connects to Org VDC Networks - different objects from vCO (and API) point of view.
