vRealize Automation 7.3 Upgrade Issue – Missing Endpoints Fix / Workaround

Last week we saw the GA of vRA/vRO 7.3 which added an absolute ton of features for a ‘dot’ release. You can read more about that here but I won’t be diving into that as there are plenty of other postings about that floating around by now.

Unfortunately, there is a relatively wide-spread bug going around post-upgrade that has to do with endpoint access and creation. Basically the endpoints available for selection are dwindled down from what you may be used to seeing to a non-standard set of options.

Thankfully the fix is quite simple and can be resolved with a single command! Also, there is a PR and Bugzilla internal to VMware so engineering is fully aware of the issue and are working towards a patch resolution.

Steps are as follows:

  • Log onto IaaS VM
  • Open administrator command prompt and browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\Model Manager Data\Cafe
  • vcac-config.exe RegisterCatalogTypesAsync -v
  • vcac-config.exe UpgradeEndpoints -v
  • That’s it, after that you should have all your endpoints back.
