Tested following vm lifecycle operations and other events;

- DB upgrade testing from ACS 4.2.1, 4.3.2, 4.5.0 to ACS 4.5.1 candiate
- Deploy zone, register primary/secondary storage pools, add/remove hosts
- Register iso and template
- Take snapshot, convert snapshot to volume/template, download template/snapshot/iso
- Deploy VM using iso and template
- Start, restart, stop, destroy/expunge VM
- Password server and reset password feature (including load testing the password server with
upto 1k QPS)
- Local storage, storage migration across hosts and storage pool
- Use local storage option for systemvm on zone basis
- VM migration (in case of XenServer only)

The following environment combinations were tested (using a nest virtualized environment running
on KVM):

1. KVM (Ubuntu 14.04.2):
- KVM (qemu 2.0, 2.1, 2.2) + Basic Zone (no SG)
- KVM (qemu 2.0, 2.1, 2.2) + Basic Zone + with SG (tested ingress/egress rules)
- KVM (qemu 2.0, 2.1, 2.2) + Adv Zone + no SG (tested pf/lb/firewall rules, snat IP, VPC,
- KVM (qemu 2.0, 2.1, 2.2) + Adv Zone + with SG (tested ingress/egress rules, VPC, VPN)

2. XenServer:
- XenServer (6.2 and 6.5) +  Basic Zone (no SG)
- XenServer (6.2 and 6.5) +  Basic Zone with SG (tested ingress/egress rules)
- XenServer (6.2 and 6.5) +  Adv Zone (no SG) (tested pf/lb/firewall rules, snat IP, VPC,
- XenServer (6.2 and 6.5) +  Adv Zone with SG (tested ingress/egress rules, VPC, VPN)

3. VMWare; (ESX 5.5.0 update1 with vCenter server 5.5.0 update1 on Windows Server 2008 R2
- VMWare + Basic zone (note: SG is not supported on vmware, so only basic zone was tested)
- VMWare + Adv zone (tested few basic ingress/egress rules)
Notes: ESXi with vCenter did not work for me on KVM (I tried 5.0, 5.1, 5.5 up1/up2), I kept
getting vmodl.fault.HostCommunication errors when adding the esxi host to vCenter. Apparently,
ESXi 6.0 worked with vCenter all running on KVM (qemu 2.2) but unfortunately I could n’t
test with it as vCenter/ESXi 6.0 not supported by ACS yet. I was able to test the above with
running ESXi/vCenter 5.5.0up1 setup on VMWare Fusion with the mgmt server running on OSX.
In my case the secondary storage had to be mounted locally on /mnt/sec (also shared by Mike
couple of months ago on some thread) as it failed creation of ssvms.

Packaging testing:
- On CentOS7 or CentOS6 with java-1.8.0-openjdk installed, installation fails with conflict
statements so admins know they need to remove jdk 1.8; openjdk 1.7 is installed with agent/mgmt/usage
- Installations on Ubuntu/Debian would stop tomcat6 (so it won’t conflict with mgmt server)
- CentOS 6/7 packages install without issues on CentOS 6.5, 7.1 and Fedora 20 (use EL7 repo
for F20), but it fails for Fedora 21 (due to no openjdk 1.7 package).
- Debian packages worked on Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10 and on Debian7 but not on systemd based Ubuntu
15.04 server or Debian 8.0

Other remarks:
- VPN for VPC/isolated network works on Windows, but is broken on OSX [due to openswan limitation
- nothing can be do; we can either support OSX (with forced nat option) but that breaks Windows
- In case of both Xen and KVM, if vlan was not vlan://untagged in Adv zone with SG I was unable
to access any VMs (as I could n’t understand how to configure vlans in test environment
which running hosts in VMs as nested VMs on a KVM host). Though in case of vlan://untagged
(in Adv zone + SG), it seems to work but with no vlan tagging it beats the purpose
- Fixed a minor packaging issue on 4.5 when installing both mgmt server and agent, they would
both create /var/log/cloudstack/agent and thus fail the last package from being installed.
