vCD error [missing: com.vmware.vcloud.common-util]

This wants to be a quick post just to share the error I experienced working with vCloud Director 5.6.x; the error I was randomly getting checking the logs /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/logs/cell.log was

“Application startup event: Error during application  startup. Shutting down. [missing: com.vmware.vcloud.common-util]”

See the following screenshot:

Checking  /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/logs/vcloud-container-debug.log shows the following error:

Caused by: java.sql.BatchUpdateException: The transaction log for database ‘VCDDC’ is full due to ‘LOG_BACKUP’

So something is clearly not right the the vCD database, in my case a MS SQL, in fact it basically run out of space 😐

So checking the actual .ldf file turns out the logs grew so much that it was 40GB!

To fix this, I had to change the recovery model from Full to Simple

and then shrink the log file to the minimum; after this I could get vCD back to life using service vmware-vcd start
