  • 1.  Issue with Kubernetes deployment (auth issue?)

    Posted Oct 23, 2020 06:52 PM

    Hello All,

    While attempting to deploy Workload Management (Kubernetes) within vCenter and NSX-T, we've run into an issue where the deployment hangs up (see attached image) and the Namespaces resource group gets created but the VM's don't deploy and then the Namespaces resource group is deleted.

    When checking logs within vCenter we see the following:

    root@vcenter7 [ ~ ]# tail -f /var/log/vmware/wcp/wcpsvc.log | grep -i error

    2020-10-23T18:36:12.402Z error wcp [opID=5f8a9d22-domain-c3008] Could not set read-only permissions on entity ResourcePool:resgroup-15936.

    2020-10-23T18:36:12.461Z warning wcp [opID=5f8a9d22-domain-c3008] Unable to create root entities in vCenter for domain-c3008. Err soap.soapFaultError:ServerFaultCode: The user or group named 'vpxd-extension-e40d9697-5cca-4057-b5e3-22d37f74c30e' does not exist.

    Any assistance or insight is appreciated.

    I'm running into the same issue, have you made any progress?

    vpxd is the actual vCenter Service on your appliance - and the extension bit indicates that it's a service account to talk to VPXD. 

    In this case, can you check out whether or not that account exists (or exists with a different UUID)? Would you be in a position to re-register the compute manager in the NSX-T Manager?

    try by restarting services on the ESXI hosts if stills hang and you have enough room to doit put in maintenance mode and redeploy the host, question do you have room for VMs in that ESXi host?
