vRealize Automation missing day-2 activities

If you are working with Advanced Service Design (ASD) to enable Day-2 activities you will realized they are missing on vRealize Automation 6.2. 

On the screen bellow, there’s just the default actions available.

Where did my Day-2 tasks that I much love go ? 


Just to be safe, I checked the Entitlements, they were properly configured and my ASD was published already.


It’s Google time !!!

It turns out vRA 6.2 has a regression issue which does not show ASD anymore.


Luckily the fix for that is a piece of cake and well documented on KB2111713


- Grab the new dll called DynamicOps.Api.v61.dll from the KB.

- Stop all IaaS Services (Manager Service, DEMs, Proxy Agents).

- Replace this file at: C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Web API\bin


It’s a good idea to first take a copy of the DLL for rollback purposes. 

Also do not just rename the file inside the folder, move it elsewhere.


- Make sure the new DLL date is 3/28/2015.


- Repeat this process on ALL IaaS Servers.

- Restart all IaaS services.

- Recycle IIS: iisreset


Voilà…. Day-2 activities are back.
