Cumulative update for vRealize Automation 7.2 migration (2148669)

  • 0 Ratings


  • vRealize Automation 7.2 migration fails if the source vRealize Automation deployment is configured with external vRealize Orchestrator.
  • Migration fails to update Model Manager Data node.
  • In the IaaS migration log, you see entries similar to:

    [InvalidOperationException: The repository has not been initialized. To initialize the repository, use Reporeg.]
    DynamicOps.Repository.Runtime.Common.RepositoryRuntime.Initialize() ...
    DynamicOps.Repository.Runtime.Configuration.RepositoryHttpApplication.Application_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e) ...


This issue occurs because:
  • vRealize Automation 7.2 migration attempts to produce a dump of the external vRealize Orchestrator database by accessing the local PostgreSQL server.
  • Migration accesses IaaS repository when it is not ready to handle external requests.


This is a known issue affecting VMware vRealize Automation 7.2.
A cumulative hotfix is available to resolve this issue. 
To install this hotfix:

  1. Copy the attached file to the vRealize Automation appliance /root folder
  2. Open a Secure-Shell session to the vRealize Automation appliance using root credentials.
  3. Run these commands:

    unzip /root/ -d /root/2148669_hotfix
    chmod 700 /root/2148669_hotfix/

  4. Start migration.

Note: The hotfix also includes a fix for migration waiting for the repository to start before proceeding with some metadata updates.
