Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • Trying to edit the network on a VM  fails with below error:

Error: [ xxxxxxxa4-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-2xxxxxxxxccb ] validation error on field 'updateVm.arg0.name': String value has invalid format, value: [VM Name ]

 

  • When we try to edit the compute details of the VM, we encounter below error:

Environment

VMware Cloud Director for Service Provider 10.x

Cause

Name of the VM has an extra space at the end.

Resolution

Edit the VM name and remove the extra space at the end of the name.

Valid Entry: [VM Name]

Invalid entry: [VM Name ]
