Pivotal Elastic Runtime 1.10.x and 1.11.x
When installing/upgrading Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) tiles, you are often asked to upload required Stemcells. You upload the necessary Stemcell, and you proceed with the install/upgrade. The installation logs throw:
Verifying stemcell... File exists and readable OK Verifying tarball... Read tarball OK bundler: failed to load command: bosh (/home/tempest-web/tempest/web/vendor/bosh/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.3.0/bin/bosh) Zlib::DataError: invalid stored block lengths
This error is thrown when there is a problem reading the Stemcell's tarball.
Here are the steps to resolve this error:
1. Verify if the Stemcell's tarball on Ops Manager VM might be corrupted by trying to unarchive the tar ball manually. This step is optional.
- SSH into the Ops Manager VM
tar -zvxvf <tarball> will be unsuccessful
2. Reupload the Stemcell using the Ops Manager UI
bosh upload stemcell <stemcell file> --fix command will not help resolve this issue. The command simply re-uploads the broken tar ball.
