Hi,

using the “cloneVM” activity in a workflow fails.

 

The workflow

 

Inputs of HttpClient

 

Inputs of CreateNetwork

 

“On start script” on the first delay

 

The inputs for the clone activity

 

 

The clone job

 

The logs:

 

The error is same if I:

  • Used the vmGUID only (without the vmName)
  • Used the vmName only (without the vmGUID)
  • Tried the vmName or the vmGUID constants not variables

Thanks for the post!

Before we take a deeper dive, I noticed something that seemed off.

Is your network name actually ‘netowrk’ or is that a typo?

Yes, My network actual name is “netowrk”

The issue is solved by cloning a VM template instead of a VM.

Now, the VM template gets cloned (create a VM) but with no Hard Disk or operating system installed.

Appreciate the follow up!  To confirm, is this what you were looking to do (before we mark this as solved)?
