None of the cells have a vCenter proxy service running

Today i wanted to create a new tenant and its vApps but i ran into “failed to deploy vApp…“. after searching the internet i came across similar problems but they all involved cleaning up QRTZ table, and “none of the cells have vCenter proxy running.” error. So I checked my vcell and yes I had the same error.

vcd cell no proxy service

I’m pretty sure I know why, I had this error. 2 weeks ago I updated the windows OS on my vcenter and rebooted it without shutting down my cells first.

VMware has a KB for this but all it says is to contact support. KB1035506

searching on the community site from vmware i found people who left the procedure online. So….

  1. stop your Cells by running service vmware-vcd stop or shut down your VCD cell machine totally
  2. make backup of databases vcenter DB and vcloud DB
  3. make backups or snapshots for vcenter, cells, vShield manager
  4. shut down your vcenter server (don’t forget this step!!)
  5. run the script from below against you database server (adjust the script for you database)
  6. start your vcenter server again and cells. (service vmware-vcd-start if you only stopped the service on the cell)
  7. check if the error is gone
