How to Force a Synchronization between the Configuration of a VM in a Repository and the Configuration of the VM in the Oracle VM Manager's Database (Doc ID 2082218.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 27, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Private Cloud Appliance - Version 1.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

 On Oracle VM, all 3.X.X releases, and Oracle Private Cloud Appliance, all supported releases.

During e.g. a network outage, or any kind of undesired service interruption either on the server hosting the VM Manager (Management node for PCA) or on a server hosting a repository (usually a LUN on a SAN), there can be at some point differences between the content of the virtual machine's configuration within the repository (in the vm.cfg ) configuration file and the records corresponding to the Virtual Machine in the VM Manager's database.

There is a simple operation which can be done that usually clears this difference.
