RHV: attempting to disable "Allow Duplicates" for Mac Pools failed, and now nothing works.

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Attempting to disable "Allow Duplicates" option for the MAC Pool failed with:
Error while executing action UpdateMacPool: Internal Engine Error
  • Now several operations, such as UpdateMacPoolCommand, RemoveVmInterfaceCommand, AddVmInterfaceCommand and even RemoveVmCommand are failing with:
Exception: javax.ejb.EJBTransactionRolledbackException: Pool for id="0000002f-002f-002f-002f-000000000108" does not exist
  • RemoveVm also shows this:
