Subject RE: Secondary nfs server alert issue
Date Sun, 06 May 2012 04:49:52 GMT
There are two related entries in the host table related to secondary storage. One is the entry
has type as "SecondaryStorageVM" the other one is "SecondaryStorage".
If SSVM is working fine then entry of type SecondaryStorageVM should be Up. The other one
ie of type SecondaryStorage refers just to the path to nfs store and an "Alert" state there
can be ignored, it remains that way in a healthy system.

I think the issue is that one gets an alert on secondary storage no matter what. It's the
first thing that appears in a fresh cloudstack install.
Might not make sense before everything is added, to check for secondary storage health.
