Symptoms

This is a possible solution for this particular error:

After the recovery of the Manager DB from a good backup, try to refresh the repository failing showing these errors:

OVMRU_002063E No utility server could be found for operation on repository: Repo-NFS-2.

These presented servers could not be used: 'no objects can be selected': - OVMAPI_A006E Cannot perform task on repository: Repo-NFS-2, it is not presented on any servers. [Tue Jun 05 11:30:44EDT 2018]

 But in the manager Web Interface, we can see the Repository presented to the different OVS Servers.

 

 Also from CLI, the DB shows the repository mounted:

OVM> refresh repository name=Repo-NFS-2
Command: refresh repository name=Repo-NFS-2
Status: Failure

But the Servers are configured as "Utility Server".

If run the Repository is listed, it shows is mounted in the Servers:
