Pinned topic Hypervisor has no PVUs assigned and cannot accept deployments

‏2013-05-13T03:32:28Z |

Hello guys!

After successfully following Joe's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTpk-55kBTc we are at the point of testing the first deployment.

However the hardware section for our development hypervisor (ESXi running inside VMware Fusion) states that no CPUs are provided:

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s3/sh/42fed17e-c432-4368-822a-3668bb796994/ee91fbee62878dce6fdde134f17ed50c

Then we go and check the licenses section and we see this alert:

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s3/sh/86a510c5-def4-4942-8195-0d5b6a914e96/bb4cb5f6a582efdc3993d5fde0a9d87a

We are stuck here. Almost able to test our first pattern.

 

Thanks a lot for all the help you could provide,

Best,

    Hi Rich!

    Have you had any news on our question?

    It'll be great to know what should we expect in order to setup our dev environments.

    Thanks!

    Hello Nicolas,

     

    Your are getting this error as the system does not recognise the machine details being provided by the ESXi host.  You can simple enter a value for the PVUs - as you are not tracking licenses you can enter any value greater than 0 for the system to be able to deploy images.

    To manually set the PVU value for your ESXi host :

    - from the welcome screen select 'Cloud' - > 'Hypervisors' from the menu then select your hypervisor in the list.

    - Put the hypervisor in maintenance mode then in the hardware section you can manually enter the PVU value (where None provided is on your first screen shot).

    - Start the Hypervisor (press the start menu item from the ESX hypervisor screen menu)

    Once you have a PVU value in the hardware section and the hypervisor is started you should be able to deploy.

    Rich,

    Have you had any response yet?

    My guess is the fact that we are running ESXi over VMWare Workstation or Fusion (we've tried in both) VPKFD is not recognizing the CPUs "correctly" and thus is not being able to map the CPU to one exising in the PVUs licensing table.

    If this is the case, is odd that a tool geared towards empowering developers to push PureApps is trying to "enforce" PVU parameters.

    Anyway, please let us know how can we move forward.

    Best,

    Nicolas E.

    Hello Nicolas,

     

    Your are getting this error as the system does not recognise the machine details being provided by the ESXi host.  You can simple enter a value for the PVUs - as you are not tracking licenses you can enter any value greater than 0 for the system to be able to deploy images.

    To manually set the PVU value for your ESXi host :

    - from the welcome screen select 'Cloud' - > 'Hypervisors' from the menu then select your hypervisor in the list.

    - Put the hypervisor in maintenance mode then in the hardware section you can manually enter the PVU value (where None provided is on your first screen shot).

    - Start the Hypervisor (press the start menu item from the ESX hypervisor screen menu)

    Once you have a PVU value in the hardware section and the hypervisor is started you should be able to deploy.

    Wow Brian!!

    Worked perfectly!

    The fact that you are able to actually change that value in the UI is really, really disguised.... but now we know.

    Thanks so much Brian!!
