Subject RE: CloudStack Installation Query
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 14:08:30 GMT
Hi Marc,
I am using a separate NFS server for secondary storage, I think the way you are going with
is when you have nfs shared folder on the same management server and mount it there itself.
Am I right?

http://incubator.apache.org/cloudstack/docs/en-US/Apache_CloudStack/4.0.0-incubating/html/Installation_Guide/management-server-install-flow.html#prepare-nfs-shares
Section 4.5.5.1. Using a Separate NFS Server


Thanks and Regards.

My point was that as the path given to the cloud-install-sys-tmplt command
(/mnt/secondary) and export path (/export), you need to mount the export path for secondary
storage (/export) on /mnt/secondary otherwise system vm template won't be able to download
to primary storage.

thx.
