Issue:

After the VSI was updated I see the following error when trying to deploy or redeploy the VSM:

============================================================================

| Exception: 

============================================================================

| Message:     Could not stage: Problem preparing the test case: Unable to preread service image named $lisatmp_dir/lads/.../VServices/Images/<imageName>.vsi

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Trapped Exception: Problem preparing the test case: Unable to preread service image named $lisatmp_dir/lads/.../VServices/Images/<imageName>.vsi

Environment:
All supported DevTest releases.
Cause:

One of the reasons the message "Unable to preread service image" is presented, is when the VS Image Response Selection step is not updated with the VSI file.

Resolution:

Open the VSM in the Workstation.

Double click in the VS Image Response Selection step.

Verify if the Service Image Location field is updated with the proper service image.
