Deploying a virtual machine on an SR-IOV enabled NovaLink host fails
After registering an SR-IOV enabled NovaLink host in PowerVC, if you try to deploy a virtual machine immediately, the deploy might fail with an error stating that the agent is not fully initialized. If this happens, wait a few minutes then retry the deploy.
Deploys fail if they are attempted immediately after registration but are fine after 5-10 minutes.
Deploys fail if they are attempted before the agent is fully up and initialized. The agent needs a few minutes to collect the SR-IOV adapter details.
Wait 5-10 minutes, then retry the deploy. Alternatively, you can restart the services to solve this problem.
