Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-2354) Unable to create Windows VMs using ISO
Date Sat, 25 May 2013 09:22:22 GMT


Nitin Mehta commented on CLOUDSTACK-2354:

Stephen - Cloudstack doesn't use Xencenter but the XAPI calls for managing vms, their storage,
n/w etc. Cloudstack allows a user (may not be the admin) to register a template which may
or may not have PV drivers in their kernel. The user can then use this template to create
his vms and once they are up and running can install PV drivers on them. Now if this workflow
is followed we want to set the dynamic range and static range differently while creating the
vm first time say to support memory over provisioning and also future scaling, is that possible
without having PV drivers ? Also if you now understand the workflow can you please also answer
the above questions please ?

> Repro Steps
> Setup the cloudstack environment as normal. (Configured NFS & CS-Mgr Servers)
> Launch browser, start CloudStack WebConsole and finish to build a cloud step by step.
(It should use workaround of build#256 when building a cloud.)
> Register the ISOs to the CloudStack as follows Win7, Win8, 2k8R2, XP. Wait for "Status"
showing "Successfully Installed".
> Add instances from all above ISOs.
> Expected Result
> All the instances should be added successfully, and all the related VMs should be launched
successfully on XenServer Host.
> Actual Result
> Unable to create Windows VMs using ISO.
> VMs based on the Win8/Win7 ISOs -> WebConsole show "Error" (refer to screenshot "ISO_Win8.jpg")

> VMs based on the XP/W2k8r2 ISO -> WebConsole show "Running" -> Auto-shutdown during
the OS installation -> WebConsole show "Stopped" (refer to screenshots "ISO_XP-Auto-Shutdown.JPG"
and "ISO_XP_State.JPG" )
