Did you upgrade your agents inside your templates to 7.4?
Yes it did, it required me to update my agents on all my templates
Can you show the script you're trying to have your guest agent invoke?
I have been chasing this same problem where windows systems fail with this error. It appears to be related to a bug and I am testing a temp workaround. Would appreciate input from others.
I believe the problem exists in C:\opt\vmware-appdirector\agent-bootstrap\vcac-appd-gc.bat. At Line #24 we have:
You may end up with a space in this string. Can be problematic because this is used as a temp file name when its passed to vcac-appd-gc.js a little later. Line ~46: cscript %~dpn0.js %APPD_PROPERTIES_INPUT% %CUSTOM_PROPERTIES_FILE% %* 2>&1 >> %VCAC_APPDCUSTOM_LOG%
So what seems to be happening is the temp file name gets truncated when a space exists. The file written is "appd.properties_06-05-2018_" instead of "appd.properties_06-05-2018_801_32.69" and the script eventually fails because its looking for a file to rename that does not exist here:
REM Rename the date time stamped temporary file to appd.properties file
ren %APPD_PROPERTIES_INPUT% %APPD_PROPERTIES%
For my testing, I dropped some of the time precision and changed Line #24 to:
This seems to have resolved the issue for me so far. Not sure of other impacts from this change.
[update] - A similar bug is discussed here and provides some suggestions to handle the leading zero if you are concerned about collisions: windows - Need leading zero for batch script using %time% variable - Server Fault
Not sure where to file a bug report for this but until a patch arrives, you will need to edit the file on your template after you install the agent or repackage the zip.
