Subject Re: Getting CRAZY for having a cloud working!
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2012 14:58:02 GMT
Hallo Sebastien,
thank you for your help.
I will try to put management log on the site you provided.
I started using 4.0 version, tried 3.0 only searching for a solution.

Let's answer something:
1- yes management server is running
2- yes I defined zone, pod, cluster and host.
3- primary and secondary are defined and available.
4- I can mount NFS secondary storage and create file inside it from host,
primary is locally available to host (HBA) and I can create a VM on it
using XenCenter, so is online and working.
I also tried using NFS share for primary, or even localstorage (enabling
global config varable to use it for VMs).
5- zone is enabled.
6- VMs are NOT running. v-2-VM is in starting/stopped state loop, while if
I enable zone CS tries to create s-XX-VM, it fails, it deletes it and try
again creating a new one, increasing XX number of 1, in an infinite loop.
This is definitely my problem. If I look at management log, it says that my
only available host is in avoid set, so CS doesn't know where to put VM and
fails. I don't know WHY my host is in "avoid set": it has 22 GB of RAM, 200
GB of primary storage and 2 CPU quadcore. It is a fresh install, formatted
and only putted into a new pool as for installation instructions. I used
same name for network interfaces and primary storage. There must be
something wrong/missing in Xen/XCP setup, but I'm not able to understand
what. Is terribly frustrating...
