Subject Re: Getting CRAZY for having a cloud working!
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2012 15:35:57 GMT
Thanks for detailing the setup.

You should definitely work with 4.0, and I am not aware of a specific issue with XCP/CloudStack
on CentOS. So stick to one OS.

Did you try what Marc Cirauqui mentioned in the thread below ?

The traffic labels in Xen Center and CloudStack need to match.
We may have to wait for Marc to enlighten us and he is probably taking a break this week :)

Best,

-Sebastien
