You can edit an existing deployment pool from the Deployment Pool page.

The Deployment Pool page includes a batch action menu that you can use to perform an action on all deployment pools. The menu includes the Apply Tags, Remove Tags, and Clear Errors, options. When a prepop fails to deploy, VMware Learning Platform marks it as an error and shows the count of errors. The Clear Errors option clears all errors, for all the deployment pools listed and drops the current count of errors to zero.

Procedure

  1. Click Cloud Management > Deployment Pools to open the Deployment Pool page.
  2. Click the vertical dots next to the deployment pool you want to edit. A drop-down menu opens that includes the following actions:

    Action

    Description

    Edit Deployment Pool

    Opens a three-tab editing form. The Edit Deployment Pool tab is current.

    Edit vApp Templates

    Opens a three-tab editing form. The Edit vApp Templates tab is current. This is the tab described in the section Editing vApp Templates.

    Edit VMs

    Opens the Edit VMs section.

    Delete

    Deletes the deployment pool.

    Refill At

    Value for the least number of available prepops. If the number of available prepops goes below the Refill At value, then the system deploys prepops (refills) until the Refill At value is met.

    Fill Up

    Value to equal (fill up), amount of prepops that must be deployed.

    Drain Prepops

    Undeploys all prepops and drops the number of deployed prepops to zero.

    Sync Prepops

    Sends a start request for all the prepops currently deployed. The start request does nothing if a prepop exists. It creates a prepop if one does not exist.

    Note:

    Use this option only if you suspect there are prepops in an invalid state

    Remove vApp Templates

    Removes vApp templates from the deployment pool.

    Remove Obsolete VMs

    Removes obsolete VMs.

    Apply Tags

    Applies tags to deployment pool.

    Remove Tags

    Removes tags from a deployment pool.

    Edit VM Metadata

    Opens a three-tab editing form. The VM Metadata is current. This is the tab described in the section Editing VM Metatdata.

    Clear Errors

    When a prepop fails to deploy, VMware Learning Platform marks it as an error and shows the count of errors. Clearing the errors marks the database record for the error as cleared and drops the current count of errors to zero.

    Fill Up Option

    Deploys enough prepops to equal the Fill Up value set within the deployment pool.

    Set to Refill

    Deploys prepops until the Refill At value is met.

    Remove all vApp Templates

    Removes all vApp templates and restructures the deployment pool. This action deletes all lab VM metadata and deployment pool VM metadata currently associated with the deployment pool. The system does not allow you to remove all the vApp templates from a deployment pool when there are one or more entitlements for labs that use the pool.

    More details

    Opens the View Deployment Pool page, which displays details about the selected pool including the following:

    • Fill Up: Value to equal (fill up) - amount of prepops that must be deployed.

    • Available: Number of prepops ready to use for taking a lab.

    • Provisioning: Refers to the number of vApp templates being booted up but not yet ready to use for taking a lab.

    • Error Count: N umber of prepops that failed to deploy.

    • Hit: Number of times users got prepops when requested.

    • Miss: Number of times users got a full deployment of a lab and had to wait.

    • Labs: List of labs included in the deployment pool.

    • VMs: List of virtual machines included in the deployment pool.
