Pinned topic Deploy Appliance Failure

‏2013-06-18T13:48:11Z |

Hi,

I have ISD 6.3.2.1 with Vmcontrol, talking to a pair of VIOS at 2.2.2.2 with the SSP agent and the vmcontrol repositry agents. I have captured an appliance from a working LPAR running AIX 6.1 in the shared storage pool.

When I try to deploy to a new virtual server, I get the following errors...

If I try and create  new LPAR from the HMC, I can't deploy to an existing virtual server and select that new LPAR as ISD complains that it needs an IP adress, but it won't get that until it has AIX and an inventory run against it.....

Anyone got any ideas on what is going wrong? No errors at all in the capture phase.
