Randomly a build may fail when utilized with the Sovlabs Modules. The error seen in the logs shows the following:
'Failed to get latest version of the resource element'
This error message presents itself when a large volume VM's is being requested. This has been seen in the F5, Naming Sequence and Ansible modules.
Faced error - creating property SovLabs_Naming_Failure = Failed to get latest version of the resource element Sequence (Workflow:Custom Naming / Generate Hostname (item13)#29) item: 'Custom Naming machineRequested/item7', state: 'failed', business state: 'null', exception: 'Failed to get latest version of the resource element Sequence (Workflow:Custom Naming / Generate Hostname (item13)#29)'
This was an internal vRO issue where versioning for vRO resource elements was not being updated properly when then contents of the resource elements were updated. This was resulting in contention when accessing resource elements during certain workflows.
