When you create a resource bundle, the resource pool you want to use is not included in the list of resource pools.

When you create a resource bundle you assign a resource pool that encapsulates the CPU and memory resources. The resource pool you want to use is not available in the list of resource pools to choose from.

Data Director includes only resource pools that are compatible with Data Director resource bundles. A resource pool must meet a set of criteria to be included in the list. If the criteria are not met, the resource pool is not included in the list of available resource pools.

The resource pool must meet the following requirements:

Resource pool is not already in use by Data Director.

CPU limit and CPU reservation must be the same.

Memory limit and memory reservation must be the same.

CPU limit is expandable.

Memory limit is expandable.

The resource pool has no child resource pools.

The resource pool has no child virtual machines.

The cluster configuration for the resource pool is compatible with Data Director.

1

To display the resource pool, uncheck Show only compatible clusters and RPs.

If the resource pool is displayed but is dimmed, it is incompatible.

2

In Data Director, verify that the resource pool is not in use by Data Director by checking the resource bundle list.

3

In the vSphere Client, verify that the resource pool meets the requirements.

Resource pool settings are correct (limit equal to reservation, expandable checked, and so on.

The resource pool is empty.

The parent resource pool uses compatible vSphere HA and vSphere DRS settings. See Perform Advanced Cluster Configuration.

4

Ensure that the resource pool is included in a cluster that Data Director can access.

Data Director can access all clusters in the same vCenter Server data center but cannot access clusters in a different data center.
