Newly deployed virtual machine status shows "Warning"
Use this information if you have any problem with your activation package. When you deploy a virtual machine, the virtual machine remains in the Activating state for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, the virtual machine is deployed, but the health of the virtual machine shows Warning state. Resize and migration operations on this newly deployed virtual machine fail.
When you deploy a virtual machine, it remains in the Activating state until either Resource Monitoring and Control (RMC) becomes active or 20 minutes have passed. There are several reasons for the virtual machine to stay in the Activating state for 20 minutes and the health of the virtual machine shows that the RMC state is inactive. If you are using the activation engine or cloud-init activation packages, the most likely cause for RMC to be inactive is that the activation package did not configure the networking of the virtual machine.
If you are using cloud-init for virtual machine activation, see Cloud-init troubleshooting guide for PowerVC for detailed steps to resolve
the activation issue. Ensure that the virtual machine has
reset-rmc added to the
cloud.cfg file. See
Installing cloud-init on your virtual machine for
instructions. You may need to stop the firewalld service on RHEL guest OS to get RMC in working
If you are using the Activation Engine for virtual machine activation, see Activation Engine troubleshooting guide for PowerVC for detailed steps to resolve the activation issue.
