In some cases, if a deployment or update process is in progress indefinitely and does not show either a pass or fail deployment status, you can mark the deployment or update process as failed without stopping provisioning in the cloud environment.

Note

When you cancel a deployment or an update process, vCloud Application Director does not delete the deployment or update process.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.

Verify that you have a deployment or update process in progress indefinitely for more than an hour.

1

On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Deployments.

2

Type the name of the deployment or update process to cancel in the search text box.

3

From the search result list, select the deployment or update process that was in progress for more than an hour.

The deployment summary page opens.

4

Click Cancel in the toolbar above the deployment summary.

5

Confirm your selection.

When you mark a deployment as failed, you can tear down the deployment from the cloud or delete the application deployment record from vCloud Application Director. See Managing Deployments.

For an update process, you can continue to interact with the deployment by starting another update process. See Updating Application Deployments.
