You deployed the VMware Cloud Director appliance successfully, but the VMware Cloud Director services might fail to start.
vmware-vcd service is inactive after the appliance deployment.
If you deployed a primary cell, the VMware Cloud Director services might fail to start due to a pre-populated NFS shared transfer service storage. Before you deploy the primary appliance, the shared transfer service storage must not contain a responses.properties file or an appliance-nodes directory.
If you deployed a standby or vCD application cell, the VMware Cloud Director services might fail to start due to a missing responses.properties file in the NFS shared transfer storage. Before you deploy a standby or vCD application appliance, the shared transfer service storage must contain the responses.properties file.
Automatic. See the VMware Cloud Director Appliance API. The default failover mode for new cells is
Manual. If the failover mode is inconsistent across the nodes of the cluster, the cluster failover mode is
Indeterminatemode can lead to inconsistent cluster states between the nodes and nodes following an old primary cell. To view the cluster failover mode, see View the VMware Cloud Director Appliance Cluster Health and Failover Mode.
