Subject Re: Trying to setup Cloudstack 4.0.0

Looks like your secondary storage is /export/secondary
You should mount it on your xen hosts and make sure the mount works.

If you have downloaded the systemvm template and pointed to /export/secondary that should
be fine.

You should check the logs at /var/log/cloud/management/management-server.log
And tells us what the error is.

That said, I have a feeling you might be running into an issue with the agent. I had issues
with the Ubuntu setup using the deb packages, I ran into this bug
It is fixed for the 4.0.1 release but not yet in the packages.

Try to:

dpkg -i cloud-system-iso_4.0.0-incubating_amd64.deb

and restart the agent:
service cloud-agent restart

Finally try to restart the system VMs.
