Error creating Pool in VMware View

Hi,

I have attached a screenshot, anyone know how to fix this error? It happens immediately, so assuming some sort of auth or DNS.

Thanks,

Under the "Servers" section in the View Admn console, did you add your vCenter server (which typically also has View Composer installed on it as well; ver 5.1 allows separation onto another server if you desire that)

Yes, the VCenter server is added there.

Hmm..Ok. So, let's get a bit more info - is this a new View deployment? Do you have othe Pools? Has everything worked up to this point? Have you had other errors doing other tasks? We'll start with those handful of questions, and I'll see if I can get more answers on the error you're getting.

Oh, 1 other question...did you install View Composer on vCenter? Ok, 2 - what Guest Customization option are you choosing at that part of the Pool creation wizard?

See if info in this thread helps:

.did you install View Composer on vCenter? -> No, on its own server.
 
what Guest Customization option are you choosing at that part of the Pool creation wizard?  -> I am not given any options for guest customization.

I'm thinking I need sysprep on the base machine?

coolsport00Commented:
Did you reference the communities link I posted to see if that helps (sorry for the delayed response...prepping for VMword, and work, has made things a bit crazy..apologies). I don't necessarily think that is it. The option at the screen you're at that you posted should give you option for sysprep or quickprep. Now, the sysprep option is really just a Guest Customization that shows up from vCenter. So, even if you didn't create that, you should at least still see a 'quickprep' option.

Yes, I followed the link but it didn't help. So let me back up. Someone else started the View setup, I merely picked up and took over. I was thinking that maybe something was missed, or I assumed their work had progressed farther than it had. What is required?



We have a VCenter environment, A Server called View (Server 2008 R2) which has View Administrator interface. Is there any other components I need to install configure?

Here are some more clues.

Internal View Composer error. Contact your administrator.  -> The error

From Event Viewer on server with the view admin console ->

1) (Request640) AJP connection test failed: com.vmware.vdi.ob.tunnelservice.dy: Failed to write data to server: java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: socket write error

2) Problem processing HTTP connection: Connection reset

3) (Request604) AJP connection test failed: com.vmware.vdi.ob.tunnelservice.dy: Failed to write data to server: java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: socket write error


These are from the V-Center server

1) Data export failed with error: [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [53]. .


2) Data export failed with error: Could not begin transaction..


I have absolutely no idea at this point....

Ok, so let's REALLY back up now that I have a bit more info - what version of View are you on? If this was upgraded from 4.x to 5.x there could be an issue with Java and some semi-extensive changes need to be made to some files (don't recall entirely). Let's try these KBs:
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2009877

But, I don't think that's the same one I referenced when I upgraded. As I will be unavailable for the next week (at VMworld, no less), I won't be able to continue assisting till end of next wk. If this doesn't help, you may want to get VMware support on the line to see if they can help.

So it was not an upgrade, it is fresh 5.0.0 View. I did make some headway. It appears that the SQL server that composer was connected to died (can't believe I missed it, or why it was setup using a SQL db on remote server) so composer could not connect. So now I need to setup a new DB and connect composer to it. Not sure if it would be best to just uninstall composer and reinstall so it auto creates the DB, or should I manually create?

sarasotamacIT ManagerAuthor Commented:
I'm awarding on effort, but I ended up resolving myself. I had to create a new database for view / composer, the ODBC connection then reinstall composer. Once that was done, I had to remove the vcenter server from the View Administrator and add again (assume this recreates the composer database?).

Anyway, resolved, thanks for everyones help!
