Pivotal Cloud Foundry® Installation Fails Due to vCenter Statistics Interval Duration Setting


Pivotal Cloud Foundry


When modifying the vCenter Statistics Interval Duration setting from its default setting of 5 minutes, the installation of the Pivotal Cloud Foundry might fail at the MicroBOSH deployment stage.

Error Message:

The logs might contain the following error message: 

The specified parameter is not correct, interval."


This failure happens because Ops Manager expects a default value of 5 minutes and the call to this method fails when the retrieved value does not match the expected default value.


To resolve this issue, launch vCenter, navigate to "Administration > vCenter Server Settings > Statistics", and reset the vCenter Statistics Interval Duration setting to 5 minutes.
