Problem description

Backup proxy and Linux Cloud cache, when deployed through OVA, fails to power on.

This error occurs if you use an HTML5 web client for proxy deployment.


Error: Property 'j. Proxy Type' must be configured for the VM to power on



Option 1

  • Log in to vCenter - Select the VM
  • Goto to Configure Tab - Settings - Click vApp Options 
  • Edit the 'j.proxy type'  field under Web Proxy Settings to HTTP.


Option 2: If Option 1 fails then try the following

  • Perform the deployment again and you'd need to select HTTP in the  'j.proxy type'  field under Web Proxy Settings as a value even if there is no web proxy.
