Common errors include the following:

  • Bad credentials (username or password)

  • Invalid or missing plug-in specified for installation

  • The Deploy server fails to authorize the session ID for a vCenter user who is attempting to access the Deploy vCenter plug-in. The session times out.

  • Insufficient privileges to access the Deploy vCenter plug-in.
