An error will be received such as the following: "The VRA cannot be installed from the OVF due to an incompatible environment. Try to manually deploy an OVF to determine the problem."
The following workaround will allow the VRA to be deployed to a VDS network when it fails with the OVF deployment error:
1. Deploy the VRA on the Host using this Standard Switch network. Assign the Static IP information that you wish to use on your VDS network later.
Alternatively, use an existing Standard Switch network on the Host
Note: This temporary Standard Switch network does not need to be connected to any network adapters or routable in any way.
2. After the VRA is deployed, edit the VRA VM settings in vCenter and switch the network to the desired VDS network under the network adapter properties.
3. Verify that the VRA now is able to connect to the ZVM
