An application deployment with one or more custom tasks is in progress indefinitely and the vCloud Director deployment cannot be stopped from vCloud Automation Center Application Services.

Problem

A custom task is running indefinitely and the deployment cannot be stopped. This problem does not generate an error message.

Cause

The deployment cannot be stopped because a custom task has an infinite loop or is running a long process.

Procedure

  1. In vCloud Director, stop the vApp corresponding to the deployment.

    You can also reclaim the cloud resources from the vCloud Director application, if you have the appropriate privileges and delete the vApp corresponding to the deployment.

  2. In the Deployment Profile wizard, verify that the custom tasks have names and redeploy the application.

    See the Using VVMware vCloud Automation Center Application Services guide.

  3. If the problem persists, cancel the deployment.

    This action marks the deployment as failed without stopping tasks so that you can interact with the application. See the Using VMware vCloud Automation Center Application Services guide.
