> The tools like cloud-setup-databases, cloud-setup-management and cloud-setup-agent seem
to come from the vmops/cloud.com time where CloudStack used to be a black box appliance.
> Now more and more people start using CloudStack I'm seeing all kinds of criticism on
these tools:
> - They change files without telling the admin
> - They punch wholes through firewalls
> Those are two things which make sysadmins cry, especially if they want to manage their
systems with Puppet or Chef.
> The steps for setting up an Agent are actually not that big and most of them are actually
already documented.
> When a host is added through the GUI we shouldn't run cloud-setup-agent, but we should
just check if the host is ready to be added and bail out if not. (And tell why)
> The same goes for the management server and databases.
> The databases is just a matter of importing the correct SQL files into the databases
and populating db.properties with the correct credentials.
> Setting up the management server is also just a matter of creating the correct configuration
files, firewalling ports and setting sudo permissions.
> We should tell system administrators what it is that he/she has to configure, not just
do things without telling.
> Documentation is key here I think.
