In an environment with multiple vCenter Server instances, the names of availability zones on the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard might differ from those on the OpenStack Management Server.

If you use the command-line interface to rename availability zones, you might see different names in the vSphere Client and the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard. In the Availability Zones column on the Manage > Nova Compute tab for your deployment, desynchronized availability zones are displayed in red. You can resynchronize the availability zones to fix the issue.


  1. Log in to the OpenStack Management Server and list the availability zones in your OpenStack deployment.
    sudo viocli inventory-admin show-availability-zones
  2. Synchronize availability zones.
    sudo viocli inventory-admin sync-availability-zones
