vVols: Cannot importVApp from java to deploy ovf template on vCenter on vVols datastore

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


I’m trying to use vVols datastore to deploy OVF template from a java application. I could do deployOvfTemplate from vCenter but when I’m doing it from java the operations is failed with error “vim.fault.CannotCreateFile Please see the server log to find more detail regarding exact cause of the failure”.


ManagedObjectReference morLease = context.getService().importVApp(morRp, ovfImportResult.getImportSpec(), dcMo.getVmFolder(), morHost);



I digged a little more on all possible logs and find the following relavant errors. But I could not find the exact issue and fix to make.

I believe importVApp method from management SDK is datastore type independant.


Can any one help me in this regard,
