You deployed the vCloud Director appliance successfully, but the vCloud Director services might fail to start.
vmware-vcd service is inactive after the appliance deployment.
If you deployed a primary cell, the vCloud 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 vCloud 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.
- Log in directly or SSH to the vCloud Director appliance console as root.
- Examine the /opt/vmware/var/log/vcd/setupvcd.log for error messages regarding the NFS storage.
- Prepare the NFS storage for the appliance type.
- Redeploy the cell .
