P30002: Cannot find suitable hardware node

The subscription does not have allowed 'CT' technology with 'local' storage type in the definition of the corresponsing OS type resource (Free Linux, Windows Server or Commercial Linux).


Old Cloud Infrastructure hosting type requires container technology with local storage to be allowed on subscription to be able to create a Load Balancer.

The behavior is recognized as OACI issue with internal ID CCU-19586.


The possible workaround that implies service template reconfiguration:

  • go to allowed storage types:

    • for old Cloud Infrastructure template they are defined in VE OS resource type ('Free Linux' or 'Windows Server')
    • for new CS Hosting template they are defined by the presence of CS Local Diskspace Usage resources
  • modify the template to include 'local' disk space type

Contact your Technical Account Manager or Pooled Technical Associate Team ( to trace the status of CCU-17530 and discuss possible workaround as an alternative approach to fix issue on per-subscription basis.
