vCloud Director 5.5 ValidationException INVALID_VRP_CPU_MHZ too

Hello All 

After upgrade we faced problem create vDC or update vDC resources with allocation model. Actually my subject is INVALID_VRP_CPU_MHZ too because another article help me to solve the issue 50 percent,  explain the solution about it (Thanks to him)

*Generally what we faced vCloud Director always have a problem about upgrades, before we faced wrong type temporary table column issue and this time INVALID_VRP_CPU_MHZ, also index rebuilds are can be failed too, waiting 5.6 for see the this time we will faced upgrade issue or not 😀

But problem is related two vDC which cause an issue (their cpu resource is setter Infinity 4294967295000 ) i can not change the value what i wetted with sql commands via vCloud Director GUI

After VMware investigation not just only table vrp also org_prov_vdc table related column should be fixed too ! 

Then everything start to work perfect again
Hope this help when people face with same situation

SSL fingerprint mismatch

Actually i do not have something more then what you find from google but have some correction or if you have some misunderstanding maybe i can help

We have two vCloud Director cells , mostly configurations are single cell

We fallowed this article http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2021877
if you have pfx pls start from step 2

in article alias numer shown like one but i saw that its like a GUID number, very long id

Also if you create a new key store, mostly no need to add root and intermediate certificates but if you want you can import too ! I have some links for keytool which can be helpful

Included root certificates in java http://superuser.com/questions/55470/which-trusted-root-certificates-are-included-in-java
How to import root and intermediate certificates to keystore http://www.sslshopper.com/article-most-common-java-keytool-keystore-commands.html and http://www.sslshopper.com/tomcat-ssl-installation-instructions.html

What is not described if you have multiple cells you have to apply “To update the vCloud Director cell service:” section for all , when you start to activate its saying DB updated bla bla and you fill like no need to touch other cells , but you have too …

Actually load balancer persistence  option do not solve any problem

Also this problem is not available in older versions

SSL Offload, many word on google actually no way to do SSL Offload because cell do not accept connection from port 80 BUT on load balancer you can configure port 443 and access backend via 443 too !

Need to know something about pfx , pkcs
