Ok so it's better to use the shapeblue systemvm.

Debian 7 + backports enabled. It's works fine with CS 4.4 (probably I 
will re-install with Ubuntu 14.04.1)

Timezone : Africa/Casablanca

kvm clock NO
cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource

long and decided to reboot it?

I decided to reboot after at least 10 minutes after the Cleaning message 
display on console (not reboot: don't work, virsh reset instance_name)

> Regarding the upgrade path, it does not matter really. Since you register 4.5 template
before upgrading the upgrade path would simply check if a systemvm template exists for currently
used unique hypervisors (it does that by checking for current hosts with distinct hypervisors
from cluster table). The checksums and URLs are in there for adding rows in the db in case
you decide to add a new hypervisor host and it needs to donwload a suitable template for that
new hypervisor. There are on-going discussion on improving the upgrade process so this issue
may be addressed in that.

Ok thanks for the explain.
Only "systemvm-kvm-4.5" in the template before the update is relevant.
