Resource [/resources/compute/e730e5b7-bd12-4803-809e-2d9655c0f448]:: Salt configuration CREATE with job id [5bae15fe-6903-42cb-b915-193b6d5e9d97] failed. Error:: : Minion deployment successful. JID - 20211202152858391410
On salt-config > jobs , look for the deploy.minion task. This was a success in my case.
Re-ran the deployment, once the machine is provisioned and customization is successful (has IP when viewing VM from the vCenter view), open the console and I took a look at /etc/salt/minion
Here, the line: master: photon-machine is clearly wrong.
looking at the grains on the salt-config UI, we see the same grains:
restart salt-master and salt-minion service.
and then take a look at the grains on the CLI
salt saltmaster grains.get fqdn
Now, refresh grains
salt saltmaster saltutil.refresh_grains
and then take a look at the UI (in about a min time)
what that sorted, deploying new VM’s via VRA with the saltify driver now works!!
