Subject Re: SSVM, templates and managed storage (iscsi/KVM)... how does it work ?
Date Sun, 03 Mar 2019 19:02:04 GMT
NFS primary, NFS secondary worked always like a charm. It's the most used
way for CloudStack, I suppose. It works great for my 4.11.2, worked great
for 4.11.1 and even for full-trash 4.10 release.

I have never tried SS on iSCSI and suppose it's a wrong way to go except
the way you use Solidfire. For KVM you must use NFS, S3 or Swift.
