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:

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/
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”
