Subject Re: [Help] Help for setting up Vmware Cluster in CloudStack...
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:53:29 GMT
Hi,

The management server logs will help.
Templates for launching user Vms won't be available until SSVM comes up
and downloads them to the correct location.
You may want to confirm if you are using the right systemVM template for
the (4.5?) build. 
Adding Rayees who may be able to point to the right systemVM template.

Thanks,
Amogh
