Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Windowsfication Of ACS
Date Sat, 15 Feb 2014 17:57:28 GMT
I see this as that CS management server should run anywhere java runs.  However, I see quite
a few holes in this proposal.

- Management server should never have mounted the NFS secondary storage.  We need to fix that.
 Please have a talk with Kelven about this.  I don't see us adding Samba to any machine that
runs the management server.  If this is just about seeding the system template, it can be
done as part of installation rather than management server.
- If I truly think about Windowsification, I think windows installer, windows service, opening
ports in windows firewall.  I don't see any of that here.  Or else it's useless for windows
	- For java, most people write a windows service that launches the jvm and keeps track of
the jvm.
- There's a number of things that CloudStack management server does today at startup that
should not be there and those are what complicates the windowfication.   These things should
be moved out of the management server and into installation.  What should be inside the management
server startup procedure should be checks, rather than generations.  It should check for ssh
key exists and the database version matches etc but it should not do the following.
	- Upgrade of the database
	- ssh key generation
	- iso generation.
