Pivotal CF Install Issue Error 30002

Here’s another little issue that I couldn’t find any documentation on, but managed to work around. When installing Pivotal CF v1.2.0.0 or v1.2.2.0 I received the following message:

Error 30002: Extracting release archive failed. Check task debug log for details.

The fix I found (after trying a few other options) was to remove everything related to Pivotal CF, including all VMs, templates and delete the Pivotal Ops manager console VMs. Make sure you delete left over VMs that could be on disk somewhere.

Then do a full re-install using Pivotal Ops manager install file pcf-1.2.0.0.ova and using elastic runtime version cf-1.2.1.0.pivotal.

The 1.2.1 version seemed to fix this for me.

Make sure you start from the beginning with the install of the OVA file. A partial reinstall with version 1.2.1 did not work for me.

If you can’t find a copy of this version then leave a comment below. Also, if this happens to help you leave a comment.

Pivotal CF (Cloud Foundry) Tutorial Part 1

Here’s a tutorial on how to get started with Pivotal CF. In part 1 we will focus on deploying a pre-built app to the cloud.

Before you begin

Download the “CF” command line tool from: https://console.run.pivotal.io/tools

Download the sample Java app that we will be using for this exercise: booking-mvc.war.zip

Unzip the file

1. set your target API to the api address of the cloud foundry interface. In this case our domain is cf.mattzwol.com

> cf api api.cf.mattzwol.com

note: you may need an extra command here in the line above to skip ssl verification. It will tell you if you do. In this case use > cf api  api.cf.mattzwol.com –skip-ssl-validation

Deploying Pivotal Cloud Foundry in Your Own Home Lab

I wanted to see what it would take to deploy Pivotal Cloud Foundry (Pivotal CF) and all the cool things that Bosh brings. I used a very minimal config to prove that a small footprint would work. Here is a summary of my setup:

Desktop 1: Intel Quad Core i7, 32 GB RAM, 2TB Internal Drive
Desktop 2: Intel Quad Core i7, 32 GB RAM, 2TB Internal Drive
Synology DS1513+ NAS Device with 3 x 240GB Intel SSDs in a RAID-5 config
24 Port HP Gigabit Ethernet Switch Continue reading Build Your Own PaaS – At Home – Part 2!
