Last updated on DECEMBER 01, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 and later

Created a new virtual disk in a repository.

When adding it to the virtual machine the "create VmDiskMapping" operation failed with error:

 Reviewed the solution in "[PCA/OVM] Hotplug vDisk Fails when VM Guest Runs Out of Frames (Doc ID 2543042.1)"


Reviewed "Failed to Add a Virtual Disk to a VM "Error: Device xvde is already connected" (Doc ID 2296647.1),


All repositories were refreshed, and the OVM Manager UI database re-sync'd as per solution of "Oracle VM: OVM Manager GUI Out Of Sync With DB - "Command Failed/OVMEVT_00C014D_001 Async command failed on server" (Doc ID 2118413.1)"

The OVM Command Line Interface (CLI) also got the same error.


 No changes had been made other than adding virtual disks to virtual machines.
