You might experience an exception during the bring-up process if the NSX nodes fail to power on.

Problem

In a multi-rack system, the management domain creation workflow might fail during the NSX: Deploy NSX Manager task with an error stating that NSX did not power on.

Cause

The bring-up process fails because the NSX Controller virtual machines did not power on during the wait time set in the NSX: Register NSX with VC task.

Procedure

In the bring-up user interface, click the Retry button to perform the task and proceed with the bring-up process.
