Subject Re: System VM template caching
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 16:22:43 GMT
I was able to create a work around and several community builders tested it out for me and
it works.

I will not submit to docs as it's a hack, but I have updated the JIRA ticket.

Work around can be found at:

This seems similar to a problem I had on 4.3 Master with System VM creation. If it is the
same problem you can check from API command ListTemplateCommand(), from CloudMonkey and see
if it returns a bogus cached value. Then you know it is the same problem.

Subject: [ACS 4.2][Upgrade Issue] System VM template caching


Several of us in the community have found that with the 4.2 upgrade, when we download and
install the latest system VM template, CloudStack refuses to use this template for new system
VM creation. CloudStack appears to be usin a cached or master-clone variant of the old template.

This is causing may KVM+ 4.2 users to have broken clouds, A bug report has been filed:

My question is: Does anyone know where this cached template is stored? when CloudStack goes
to make a new system VM, where does it look first for the template? We have observed through
testing that this is no secondary storage.

Thanks in advance.
