Subject Installation docs update
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 00:10:33 GMT
Hi guys, 

Sorry if this email will sound a bit off, but it's rather late at night and i've spent ages
trying to figure out why ACS 4.3 is broken on a newly created install with XenServer 4.3.

Could someone responsible for documentation please make the following corrections to make
sure that people following the installation guide will actually end up with a working installation.
At the moment, the installation guide has mistakes/omissions which prevent users from having
a working CloudStack environment. It just looks rather unprofessional ((( 

Issues I've found so far (there might be more) 

1. When installing the management server on Ubuntu server please add to requirement to install
libmysql-java by running: 

apt-get install libmysql-java 

Or the management server will not start. Produces a java exception complaining about unable
to connect to the sql database 

2. Please change the debian repo from: 

deb precise 4.2 


deb precise 4.3 It would be also good to change that line
with every new version release. You do want users to install the latest version of ACS, don't

3. Please update the section about downloading vhd-util if you are using XenServer and indicate
that this file would also have to be manually copied to XenServer to /opt/cloud/bin folder.
This bit is missing from documentation and because of this system vms will no get created.
Simply downloading the file into the locattion indicated in the installation guide is not
enough. It is not being copied to the xenserver host automatically.
