Subject Re: [QUESTION] Debugging CS VMware logic in Eclipse
Date Fri, 25 Apr 2014 21:33:22 GMT

Sorry for replying late, I¹ve been on a vacation.

Re-routing storage commands to SSVM has been there from very beginning.

Having the logic running on management server is mainly for two reasons

1) to bootstrap system VMs
2) To rescue when SSVM is not online.

VMware behave under CloudStack is of its own kind, so you will see a lot
of differences. Hope you¹ve already got familiar with it :)
