This is my own guide I put together while setting up my cloud. It goes all the way up to VM's. It is still a work in progress, so it is a beta version. But maybe it will be of use to someone.

I setup the management server on a primary and backup system, both of which were Optiplex 990. I setup the cloud agent on three nodes, but since the process is the same for all three nodes, I only listed the process once.

I used a USB for loading the Cloudstack software, for installing the Intel NIC driver and for installing ntlmaps. My guide reflects the way I setup my cloud and will need to be adjusted to suit your needs.

Wow - this is awesome. - Thanks for posting it!

One question for you - is there a reason you didn't use the fuse plugin for mounting gluster instead of NFS?

I am going to be totally honest, I wasn't sure what Fuse was or is used for. I will have to examine it more closely now that you mention it. I was having storage problems getting my VM's installed. This may help that situation.

Man, if I just had this some time ago!

It is a very good setup (from my humble prespective.

Using fuse plugin (I'm assuming the gluster client, so you would "mount -t gluster...") you have automatic failover in case one peer in the volume goes down (with nfs you just have an stale fs). Also I think that it will handle volume resize (eg if you add more bricks to the volume) which NFS won't.

Also, I don't know this but, is there any plans to support gluster as storage (primary or secondary)? It would be nice...

thx

Had high hopes as I started to read...

Unfortunately the guide stops right where I have the most questions: how to finish the configuration of a basic install (what IP addresses to put where, any other prep work needed on a server with a fresh install of linux [centos or unbuntu, whatever], etc.). :(

I appreciate the hard work you have put in so far, I hope someone who has been through a few working installs can finish the guide.
