After a VM is created, it takes a while for it to register to the network using its IP address and hostname. When the Event-Based Task runs, the activation fails because the computer has no IP address and hostname yet.
In order to activate the VM using Event-Based Task successfully, set an activation delay time:
  1. On the DSM console, go to Administration.
  2. Click Event-Based Task.
  3. Type “10” in the Activate Computer Delay (in minutes) field.
Setting Activate Computer Delay time to 10
