    I am trying to provision a VDB using dxtoolkit , dx_provision_vdb but getting these errors  - 
    Problem with starting job
    Error: source->allowAutoVDBRestartOnHostReboot->This field is required.
    error $VAR1 = {
              'source' => {
                            'allowAutoVDBRestartOnHostReboot' => {
                                                                   'details' => 'This field is required.',
                                                                   'commandOutput' => undef,
                                                                   'action' => undef,
                                                                   'id' => 'exception.validation.field.missing',
                                                                   'diagnoses' => undef
    $VAR2 = 1;

    Job wasn't defined. If there is no error on the screen, try with -debug flag to find a root cause.

    Is there a different Tag that needs to be appended with the query ??

    Hello Kinjal,
                        Looks like you need to pass set the parameter "allowAutoVDBRestartOnHostReboot" while provisioning a VDB.

    Please share the full command with parameters, which you run to provision VDB, using dx_provision_vdb.

    You can also have a older version of dxtoolkit which doesn't support 5.2 engines.
    I would suggest upgrade to a latest version.

    Hi Kinjal, The parameter “allowautovdbrestartonhostreboot” is mandatory as per engine version 5.0 and upper. As Jatinder stated you have to set a value for this parameter to get the command running Regards, Mouhssine
