I was trying to publish a content library externally, so I could access it from a different cluster. However, I couldn't find it. This situation makes me doubt for a while if I really had created this content library, but, I was sure I did. So dude, where’s my content library?
I had to reboot the ESXi (6.7), and the VCSA sited on it for maintenance purpose, and after this, the issue was presented. Investigating a bit more, finally, notice that the Content Library Service never started, it was Stopped.
Make sure that the content Library Service is started.
- Access the VCSA via SSH.
- Run the following command to check the Content Library services status.
service-control --status vmware-content-library
- If the service is Stopped, run the following commando to start it.
service-control --start vmware-content-library
- The Content Library Service will start.
After following the steps above, the Content Library should be visible from the vSphere Client.
VMware can be funny sometimes… if for some reasons you are unable to start the Content Library service, try out this workaround from VMware KB.
