Adding additional disks to virtual machine in vCloud Director fails

Adding additional disks to virtual machine in vCloud Director fails with the error

The operation failed because no suitable resource was found.

 

In vCloud Director 5.1.0 and 5.1.1, you experience these symptoms:

  • You are unable to add a disk to an existing virtual machine with available datastore space.
  • You see the error:
    The operation failed because no suitable resource was found
  • You cannot add additional disks to an existing virtual machine.
    Note: You can successfully create a new virtual machine with a disk the same size as the available datastore space.
  • If you add a disk to the virtual machine from vCenter Server, the new disk is recognized by vCloud Director but powering on the virtual machine fails.

This issue is resolved in vCloud Director 5.1.2. For more information about this version, see the VMware vCloud Director 5.1.2 Release Notes. You can download the latest release from the VMware Download Center.
