When you start VMware Aria Automation 8.x from the beginning, such as after a power outage, a controlled shutdown or after recovery, you must verify that all components were started successfully.


Verify that the load balancers that your deployment uses are running.


  1. Start the VMware Workspace ONE Access VMs.
  2. If you are running a deployment that uses load balancers with health checks, disable the health check before you start the VMware Aria Automation appliance. Only the ping health check option should be enabled.
  3. Start all instances of the VMware Aria Automation appliance at the same time and wait for approximately 15 minutes for the appliances to start up.

    After startup, verify that the VMware Aria Automation appliance services are up and running.

  4. Log in to any of the VMware Aria Automation nodes and run the following command to verify the services status:
    kubectl -n prelude get pods

    If any of the pods are listed as down or you get the No resources found. error, run the following commands to restart up the pods:

    /opt/scripts/deploy.sh --onlyClean
    sleep 60
