Subject Re: Getting CRAZY for having a cloud working!
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2013 17:02:18 GMT
Hallo all and happy new year!
Today I tried again: management vm fresh, xenserver fresh and updated (but
still 6.0.2) with local storage, I closed wizard and before adding zone
etc. I configured option for system VMs on local storage. Then added zone,
pod, cluster, node... when adding node, some strange errors regarding agent
disconnected. From XenCenter I see that local storage has changed name with
"cloud stack bla bla bla" in description, but in management UI I don't see
any primary storage configured.
Ok, enough. New year, new life. If a product takes almost a month for
simply setup a trial and even now not works, maybe is time to try something
different. Maybe I'm unlucky and/or not capable of doing things, or maybe
CloudStack and guides are not so "turnkey" as they claim to be. I don't
know what else to do, just give up.
