This issue is caused by a sync issue with QRTZ and Inventory. It is easily remedied, however it will require down time as the cells will need to be shut down in the process. And don’t forget…BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP. You can never have too much backup 🙂 Just follow the steps below…
Follow the steps given below to capture OVFTool logs:
- Open vCD UI in browser by adding ?debug=true at the end. For example see URL: https://xx.xxx.xxx.xx/cloud/?debug=true
- Now reproduce the issue
- Collect the client logs from the client machine. If client machine is windows, then the logs will be at following location:
There are a ton of blogs out there with complex queries and actions you can perform when your transaction logs are full and the vCD Web Interface fails with an error like:
.CellNotActiveException: Cell is not active
Well, I decided to make it simple for those who just want to get your environment back up and running ASAP.
I found it quite risky to connect to a vCloud instance as a SysAdmin and perform calls to a specific Org and ensure not to touch other orgs by a simple typo in my commands.
Use the following command to connect via PowerCLi direct to an org in vCD.
Connect-CIServer -Org WWW -Server XXX -Username YYY -password ‘ZZZ’
To create and import self-signed SSL certificates:
- Create an untrusted certificate for the HTTP service host with the command:keytool -keystore certificates.ks -storetype JCEKS -storepass passwd -genkey -alias http
- Enter the fully qualified domain name of the HTTP service host when prompted for your first name and last name.
- Create an untrusted certificate for the console proxy service host with the command:keytool -keystore certificates.ks -storetype JCEKS -storepass passwd -genkey -alias consoleproxy
- Verify that all the certificates have been imported, list the contents of the keystore file with the command:keytool -storetype JCEKS -storepass passwd -keystore certificates.ks -list
- By default, certificates are valid only for 3 months. To increase the duration, add the switch -validity number_of_days when creating your certificate.
- After creating the certificates, you must run the /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/bin/configure script. This script prompts you for the SSL certificates. After you enter the required passwords, the vCloud Director service starts.
