By default, Orchestrator is not set up to resume failed workflow runs. You can enable Orchestrator to resume failed workflow runs and set a custom timeout period after which failed workflow runs cannot be resumed.

Procedure

  1. On the Orchestrator server system, navigate to the folder that contains configuration files.

    Option

    Action

    If you installed Orchestrator with the vCenter Server installer

    Go to install_directory\VMware\Infrastructure\Orchestrator\app-server\conf.

    If you installed the standalone version of Orchestrator

    Go to install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\conf.

    If you downloaded and deployed the virtual appliance

    Go to /etc/vco/app-server/.

  2. Open the vmo.properties configuration file in a text editor.
  3. Set Orchestrator to resume failed workflow runs by editing the following line in the vmo.properties file.
    com.vmware.vco.engine.execute.resume-from-failed=true
  4. Set a custom timeout period for resuming failed workflow runs by editing the following line in the vmo.properties file.
    com.vmware.vco.engine.execute.resume-from-failed.timeout-sec=<seconds>

    The value you set overrides the default timeout setting of 86400 seconds.

  5. Save the vmo.properties file.
  6. Restart the Orchestrator server.
