Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-5807) Problem with shared datastore in VMware cluster with only one host
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2014 21:05:50 GMT
Mike Tutkowski created CLOUDSTACK-5807:

             Summary: Problem with shared datastore in VMware cluster with only one host
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-5807
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: VMware
    Affects Versions: 4.3.0
         Environment: ESX 5.1
            Reporter: Mike Tutkowski
             Fix For: 4.3.0

I created a volume on a SAN and connected my one and only ESX host in the cluster to it via
CHAP. The iSCSI target was detected and I was able to create a datastore with it (manually
through vSphere Client).

The problem is that the VMware server resource detects this new datastore and automatically
introduces it to CloudStack as host-based primary storage.

This is a problem because it should really be cluster-based primary storage.

If I were to add another ESX host to this cluster, I don't think it could access this primary
storage as it is currently configured in CloudStack.

The logic to detect if a datastore on an ESX host is local must be somewhat flawed.

I believe if I had two or more hosts in my cluster and performed this datastore operation
that it would not have detected this as host-based primary storage and I would have been able
to manually add the datastore to CloudStack as cluster-based primary storage.
