Update Deployment Parameters after Bringup Failure
Stuck with a failed VCF deployment because of a wrong value was entered in the deployment parameters file?
The Cloud Builder UI allows for a bringup execution to be retried, but it does not allow the input specification to be modified.
Instead of starting from scratch the current input file can be edited.
- Modify the current json with the new values.
This file is located at:
- Obtain the UUID of the failing execution
This value is visible in /opt/vmware/bringup/logs/vcf-bringup-debug.log
Search for "End of Orchestration with FAILURE for Execution ID <UUID>".
- Execute the following command on the Cloud Builder VM to retry the execution with the modified input json:
curl -X POST http://localhost:9080/bringup-app/bringup/sddcs/<UUID> -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "@/opt/vmware/sddc-support/cloud_admin_tools/Resources/vcf-ems/vcf-ems.json"
