Deployed Cloudstack 184.108.40.206 on three Dell PE R servers, 1 management, 2 compute/agent and a standalone NFS server.
OS: CentOS 6.2 for all Cloudstack servers
3xDell PowerEdge r905 servers: 1 management, 2 compute/agent and a standalone NFS server.
64 GB RAM on the Cloudstack servers.
I'm having a problem creating the guest network through the first login Wizard and editing a Zone through the UI. For the wizard, I step through the Basic network configuration of a Zone using the configuration specified below. Each Cloudstack server has a single NIC and a static IP. The Zone launch at the end always fails on the guest network setup. The dialog box states it fails and then has "Error:" but no text with it. In this state the Zone is created but I have to create the pod, cluster, host, storage and networking configuration using the UI.
Our test environment has a vanilla network setup. Single subnet for physical and virtual networks, 10.51.154.0/23. The details for my Zone configuration are below. The attached management-server and api-server logs should reflect the start-up of cloud-management service, login to the Web UI on to the failed guest network add. I attached a screen shot of the guest network add attempt for context although no error messages are rendered.
I've removed and re-installed Cloudstack on the management and agent servers a few times. I dropped the cloud and cloud_usage databases and removed /etc/cloud configs before each re-install. I never made it through a successful guest network add.
Any ideas why I'm running in to problems adding a guest network? I can't proceed further without a guest network. I'd appreciate any assistance or guidance. I can also delete the zone and walk through the initial Basic networking Zone setup Wizard if that would help.
I am no longer having this issue after a clean re-install. I had tried a re-install a few times prior but ended with the same results/issues reported here. I'm not sure why this last re-install worked. I'm using the same Zone configuration that I used in the past with the exception of the pod name. The Zone setup wizard launched the zone and it completed all the component configurations, including guest network, without a problem. The zone was up and running after the launch and the host was connected to the cloud without the need to run 'cloud-setup-agent'. I'm frustrated that I don't have a clue why the setup worked. The cloud is up but I did run in to some issues with secondary storage and the system vm's. Those are resolved now as well. I had to delete the console proxy instance. A new console proxy instance was created and successfully launched.
