Re: bosh-lite diego "found no compatible cell"

Ted Young

To be clear, there are other reasons that error occurs, such as when the
stack you requested is not available on any cell. But often it points at a
failed deployment.

"found no compatible cell" is the error you will get when all diego Cells
have failed to deploy. Start by double checking that the cell is up and
running via `bosh vms`.

Hi, Christian,

Thanks for asking. From what you've described, it sounds like Cloud
Controller is able to tell Diego to run the app, but the app instance isn't
getting placed on a cell. It's probably worth looking at the logs of the
auctioneer, in /var/vcap/sys/log/auctioneer/auctioneer.stdout.log on the
brain_z1/0 Diego VM, and the cell rep, in
/var/vcap/sys/log/rep/rep.stdout.log on the cell_z1/0 Diego VM (assuming a
standard BOSH-Lite deployment). It might even be useful to follow those
logs in real-time with `tail -f` while you stop and start the CF app.

Also, what versions of CF, Diego, Garden-Linux, and the BOSH-Lite
stemcell do you have deployed?

I installed bosh-lite on my mac according to the docs on

That worked all fine, I can deploy apps without diego enabled and they
run as expected. But when I enable diego for an app and then restart it,
I get

0 of 1 instances running, 1 starting (found no compatible cell)

Any idea where to look at?
