Create Project from Saved Image and datastore

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Create Project from Saved Image in IBM Tivoli Service Automation Manager 7.2.4.1 does not restore the system disk in the same datastore.

Symptom

In TSAM 7.2.1, the system disk is restored in the same datastore as the one used for the initial virtual server but in TSAM 7.2.4.1 the system disk is not restored in the same datastore as the one used for the initial virtual server.


Cause

The reason for this change is that an additional check has been introduced in TPM provisioning workflow to check available space on the datastore directly on the vCenter.

Resolving the problem

This is expected behavior.

If the storage is sufficient, it continues without further tasks but if it is NOT sufficient, then the workflow analyses the remaining datastores (configured at pool). Out of the list of capable datastores,
it randomly selects one and finally updates TPM/TSAM data structures and continues.
