New VM not showing as Wilds ?

I have been testing a bit with the new vOneCloud 2.0 but here but I run into an
issue.

I run a platform for that based on VMWare vSphere 6. Some of my customers want to have a bit more control, 
but I do not want to give them access to my vCenter. So I'd like to give them these functions: - Start / Stop a VM - Reboot a VM - Take a snapshot - Remote console Nothing more than this so no deployment. vOneCloud seemed perfect for this. So I imported my clusters and VM's as Wilds. It looked great. BUT.... I want to keep doing provisioning from vCenter. So I made a new VM in vCenter after the initial import for a customer and I cannot import it. Does vOneCloud only import wild vm's once?? Is there an option to add them later?
I hope you can clarify this.

Is the new VM running in a vCenter Cluster that has been imported in vOneCloud?

Can I E-mail it somewhere? since in my opinion there is some information in there that I rather not disclose publicly.

We completely understand, however this is one of the advantages of the commercial support subscription which is not available in the community forum.

I understand that, but I won't take commercial support before I know the product suits my needs. And now it doesn't work. So this is kind of a 'chicken and egg' situation then.

I anonymized the parts I didn't want in here. The VM that doesn't show up is called Render-VM3. I think the ID's with -1 are a bit strange not?

-1 IDs are for VMs that were not launched by vOneCloud (ie, Wild VMs).

 

We see a RenderVM-VM3 - RenderFarm. Is this the VM that is missing?

Yes Render-VM3 is showing up in this list but NOT in Sunstone when I click wilds on this cluster.

And about the -1 ID's. In this list all other VM's are actually running. So I guess they should not have the -1 ID at all?

Two separate things here:

 * "Render-VM3 - RenderFarm". This VM has ID of 3, it should show as a poweroff VM, but not as a Wild one. We also noticed that ""Render-VM1 - RenderFarm" has also ID 3. This can only be explained if vOneCloud DB was reset (or vOneCloud installed from scratch), without previous VMs being erased. Note that this is not supported, since VMs launched through vOneCloud cannot be reimported in another vOneCloud. Please delete one of the VMs using vCenter.

 * VMs reported as -1 are VMs that were not launched through vCenter, they will appear as wild. They can be running, they are just not recognized as normal VMs by vOneCloud

I did not reset anything. I just installed a new Appliance of vOneCloud. But to be sure. I'm trying to find out if the scenario I have in mind works at all. I only want to use vOneCloud to give our customers a way to start/stop/reset their VM's, make snapshots and do remote console. I do not want to use it for provisioning. We will keep doing that from vCenter. So if we add a new VM there it should show up in vOneCloud.

Is this possible at all (only management console functionality) or should we look for an alternative solution? If this should work I'm more than happy to switch to paid support, but I'm not going to get paid support contract to find out it is not possible afterwards.
