Retry a Virtual Machine Operation

Retry a Virtual Machine Operation

Some Enterprise Cloud operations require substantial time to complete and, if they fail, can be retried. A retry operation is an outstanding failed operation for which retries are possible. The Enterprise Cloud permits retry operations against detached disks and virtual machines.

Note: Retry events are often caused by conditions that may take time to resolve. When a retry event is detected, wait a short time before attempting the retry operation. Failure of a retry operation may only signify the condition remains unresolved. However, if repeated attempts fail, contact Customer Support for assistance.

To retry any failed operation in a virtual machine:

    Red exclamation, icon: error, indicates a failed operation state.

  1. Select a virtual machine.
  2. Retry menu choice appears if recovery is possible.

  3. Click Retry.

You can also retry a virtual machine operation from the context menu.

  1. Right-click a desired virtual machine to retry.
  2. Retry menu choice appears if recovery is possible.

  3. Click Retry.

Retry Detach Disk

You can retry failed detach disk operations.

    The Configure Server dialog appears.

    The basic virtual machine and disk details appear.

  1. Click Retry Detach.

Retry Attach Disk

You can retry failed attach disk operations.

    The Configure Server dialog appears.

    The basic virtual machine and disk details appear.

  1. Click Retry Attach.

Retry Other Operations

For instance-based virtual machines, you can retry a failed, create server from template, create server from catalog, create blank server, configure server, delete server, copy customized, and copy identical operations.

Note: Operations on a resource-based virtual machine cannot be retried, except for detached disk operations.

The Retry {operation} dialog appears where {operation} is one of:

  • Create Server From Template.
  • Create Server From Catalog.
  • Create Blank Server.
  • Configure Server.
  • Delete Server.
  • Copy Customized.
