  • While running IaaS workflows, such as vCloud Automation Center > Infrastructure Administration > Extensibility > Installation > Install vCO customization or vCloud Automation Center > Infrastructure Administration > Extensibility > Administration > Credentials > Delete a Connection Credential, you see errors similar to:
