VMware Cloud Director

Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
When you attempt to insert media on a virtual machine from VMware vCloud Director, you experience these symptoms:
  • vCloud Director reports the error:

    The requested media is not configured to be stored on the storage policy of the VM:"*"

  • The media you are attempting to mount was imported from another ORG


Environment

VMware Cloud Director 5.5.x
VMware Cloud Director for Service Provider 5.6.x

Cause

This issue occurs when the media you are attempting to insert is located on a datastore that is not accessible from the host in which the virtual machine is running.

Resolution

This is a known issue affecting VMware vCloud Director 5.5.2 and VMware vCloud Director for Service Providers 5.6.2.

Currently, there is no resolution.

To work around this issue:
  • Ensure that the media catalog is located on shared storage that is accessible to all hosts in the cluster.
  • If the media catalog is on local storage, migrate the virtual machine to the host in which the media catalog is attached and insert the media again.
