Hi Franky,

When VR get started from the Cloudstack management server you will find 'StartCommand' in
After this command CS sends ping trials  to VR. During this time VR will be in starting state.
Once the ping is success CS marks it as running state in CS DB.

You need to follow VR deploy related MS logs.

nothing is happening in vCenter. The VM exists now, but it’s not running and there are no
pending tasks.

not.  How do I see the status on the VR creation? I’d love to learn how to troubleshoot
these problems in CloudStack; they always drain hours out of my day and in the end I feel
like I didn’t do anything. CS just fixes itself afar a few hours. That’s great and all,
but it’s a few hours my entire infrastructure is unusable while my hands are tied.
