Good afternoon.

I made a test with the workflow: https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-58054

In my test I did find the error:

====

Do you have a VDC defined? Almost looks like the DS is not part of the cloud(vCenter) you have in the VDC?

Nice WF. It would be great if the rollback of this workflow could have triggered rollback of all the child workflows too.

Swap out the provisioning step with this WF

https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-63923

it does roll back of children.
