Subject Question about SSVM errors/outbound internet connection
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2013 22:03:43 GMT
Hi All,

I had a question about the SSVM and it's ability to communicate out to the internet.  I'm
currently using the DevCloud2 appliance inside Virtualbox with the Management Server and database
running on my laptop (OS X).  This is with the 4.1 version of the code, pulled from the branch.

I've gotten to the point where I've built the source, deployed the database, and am running
the management server all w/o any apparent issues.  System VMs come up without issues and
tinyLinux template is registered with the management server as well.  However, the state of
the SSVM is such that no other templates will download since it's having trouble connecting
to external sites.

I was following some of the steps on the wiki here
and one of the troubleshooting steps it mentions is to run  /usr/local/cloud/systemvm/
 This fails on the second step with the following:

root@s-1-VM:~# /usr/local/cloud/systemvm/ 
First DNS server is
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=2.685 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.413 ms
--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.413/1.549/2.685/1.136 ms
Good: Can ping DNS server
ERROR: DNS not resolving
resolv.conf follows

Also both cloud.out and systemvm.log in /var/log/cloud seem to give errors indicating issues
with connecting to remote sites as well.  I can connect back to mgmt server on 8250 so I don't
think that is the issue.

root@s-1-VM:/var/log/cloud# tail -2 systemvm.log 
2013-02-21 22:01:17,523 INFO  [utils.nio.NioClient] (Agent-Selector:) Connecting to localhost:8250
2013-02-21 22:01:17,525 ERROR [utils.nio.NioConnection] (Agent-Selector:) Unable to connect
to remote

root@s-1-VM:/var/log/cloud# tail -2 cloud.out 
22:01:17,525 ERROR NioConnection:110 - Unable to connect to remote
22:01:23,614 ERROR NioConnection:110 - Unable to connect to remote

root@s-1-VM:/var/log/cloud# telnet 8250

Is this a known limitation of the DevCloud setup or is there maybe something else wrong with
my setup?
