Subject RE: CloudStack Installation Query
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 10:14:29 GMT
Hi all,

While installing CloudStack on the management server, in the documentation I came across section
below: Downloading vhd-util
Before setting up the Management Server, download vhd-util from vhd-util3
If the Management Server is RHEL or CentOS, copy vhd-util to /usr/lib64/cloud/common/scripts/vm/hypervisor/xenserver.
If the Management Server is Ubuntu, copy vhd-util to /usr/lib/cloud/common/scripts/vm/hypervisor/xenserver/vhd-util.

I am installing on RHEL 6.3.
So far I just prepared the build rpm packages from the source code and prepared the OS for
Management server installation.

As per the step, I downloaded the vhd-util from internet.
However, I was not able to find the path given /usr/lib64/cloud/common/scripts/vm/ hypervisor/xenserver
on my RHEL server.
The folder common inside cloud doesn’t exist.

My question is if I have missed some step because of which this folder did not get created
or this step will be done when I will install the hosts.
Please guide.

Thanks and Regards.

Thanks Jerry for clarifying.

My next query is:
I am using an RPM-based system, I want to add the Yum repository so that I can install CloudStack
with Yum.
I have created a repos file under /etc/yum.repos.d.


Next you'll want to add the GPG key:
$ rpm --import http://server.url/downloads/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt

(Refer Documentation of CloudStack Installation -Section 4.4.2. )
What will be the value of server.url?

Thanks and Regards.

yes, RPM for RHEL OS only, while DEBs for debian-based OS

Subject: CloudStack Installation Query


I am trying to install CloudStack 4 on the system.
I am having RHEL 6.3 system for the CloudStack Management server installation.

I am following standard Installation guide to do so.
Location -
I am referring to Section 3, 3.5 and 3.6 particularly.

I wanted to confirm if I should perform step in section 3.5 only if my server OS is Ubuntu
and perform steps in section 3.6 if my management server is RHEL server.
So, if I have RHEL OS I will just build RPMs and not DEBs, correct?

Please clarify.

Thanks and Regards.
