Subject RE: Debian and Ubuntu ISO cannot be installed
Date Thu, 31 May 2012 17:29:40 GMT
Hi Jewel,

XenServer doesn't support install PV Debian and Ubuntu from ISO.

So if you create VM from ISO and use Debian or Ubuntu guest OS type, it won't work.
You can use "Other Linux (32-bit)" guest OS type, but it results a HVM VM, which XenServer
doesn't support officially.

I would recommend below way to create template for Debian or Ubuntu,

1. use a standalone XenServer( not part of CloudStack), install Debian or Ubuntu from network
(http, ftp),
2. after installation, stop VM, find the VHD image file for the VM, and upload this file into
CloudStack as Debian or Ubuntu template.


Thanks,
Anthony
