ClearPass 6.6 and VMware vSphere 6.5 : Duplicate Key cpuHotAddEnabled

If you try to deploy ClearPass 6.6(.0) on VMware vSphere 6.5, you can get the following error message when deploy : -109.5:VALUE_ILLEGAL: Duplicate Key "cpuHotAddEnabled"

 

It is easy to fix ! (waiting a new release of OVF...)

edit the CPPM-VM-x86_64-6.6.0.81015-ESX-CP-VA.ovf with notepad

and search line (end of file):

<vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="cpuHotAddEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>

And if you look

      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="cpuHotAddEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>
      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="cpuHotRemoveEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>
      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="firmware" vmw:value="bios"/>
      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="cpuHotAddEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>
      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="memoryHotAddEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>
      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="tools.syncTimeWithHost" vmw:value="false"/>

 there is this line twice :

      <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="cpuHotAddEnabled" vmw:value="false"/>

 

 

Remove the first and save and redeploy ! and it work :-D

Just as an FYI, ESXi 6.5 is not officially supported yet.

Hi Tim,

 

I made the edit to the OVF file that you outlined above. However, I am getting a different error when trying to deploy the OVF. When I am on step 6 of 6 the install wizard shows "a required disk image was missing". After I hit finish, I get the error "Failed to deploy VM: postNFCData failed."

 

I did select both the .OVF and .VMDK file when I chose to deploy a new OVF...

 

Few screen shots attached. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

You need only to select the OVF file (and select Deploy OVF)

 

And like tim say, it is not yet supported for the moment...

If you don't select a VMDK file with the OVF you can not contiue. Screen shot attached.

 

I realize it's not supported, but this thread was created to address issues with CPPM 6.6.0 / ESX 6.5 deployement. So any insight would be appreciated.

 

Also note this deployement is using vSphere, not vCenter.

 

Thanks
