Can anyone explain what the requirements of the secondary storage are? I’m just trying to get a single VM provisioned, and no matter what I try I get all sorts of errors. The NFS server I’m using is a FreeNas VM that’s NFS interface on the same network as the Cloudstack application server all the host VMs and virtual machines, I do have a few other networks (storage and external access) but they shouldn’t even be seen or needed to be seen for this to work.

I just want Cloudstack to interface with my VMware cluster provision and mange templates and have VMware handle the rest.

I have it talking to my VMware cluster just fine, but no matter what I can’t seem to upload a new ISO, or when I do I doesn’t show up when I provision an Instance…… see the many screenshots I have attached to this post.

Hello,

I have the same problem of you, when you create the template or iso, i think the template was not download to the http_server.
Make an netstat -antp on you're http_server when you try to create a template and you see if the cloudstack server download the iso

So from the post, I don't really know how far along you are. Do you have the ssvm machine up?
If so, can you run the ssvm-check.sh troubleshooting script?
If not - tell us what kind of restrictions you have in place on the secondary storage NFS share. Where can the SSVM be mounted from.

If the SSVM script checks out fine - have you confirmed that you have added your internal ISO host to the secstorage.allowed.internal.sites global setting? (and then restarted the cloud-mgmt service and stop and started your SSVM) (We deny all outbound connections on internal networks for the SSVM by default.)

I don't have SSVM up nor do I know what that is (I wish I did), I will work on getting that up and running tonight. I followed the install guide but I may have gotten lazy as soon as I got the GUI up.

I found this link and I think it explains what you’re trying to tell me to do here:

cloud.mindtouch.us/Knowledge_Base/Templa...Console_Proxy_issues

However if you could quickly explain the roles of those two system VM's, or point me in the direction of a good doc that does I would greatly appreciate it.

Huge fan of CloudStack!

One more note, I looked at the template database table and the status for the ISO's I added says 'NOT DOWNLOADED'. I guess I just need to all the internal IP of my ISO web host and try again. Thanks for pointing that out.

SSVM is the one which is responsible for downloading the ISO which you are trying to add in CloudStack.


Go to "Infrastructure" -> zones -> <your zone> -> System VMs -> Details

1) Can you check whether you have SSVM up and running?

- Above "Details" page should list something like "s-<Number>-VM" as "Running"

2) If the above is not reported as "Running". Can you double check whether system VM template preparation went fine?

- Did you do "Prepare the System VM Template" as mentioned in CloudStack3.0InstallGuide.pdf, page no # 26 ?

3) If SSVM is shown as "Running" then can you please make sure the following troubleshooting went fine.

Try "Troubleshooting the Secondary Storage VM" mentioned in CloudStack3.0Installguide.pdf, page no : 140.
