Subject Re: Problems starting management server
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2013 18:55:56 GMT
Hi, Aniket.  CloudStack doesn't use the root user to connect to the
database, rather it uses the user you specified in the
cloud-setup-databases step of the installation (if you followed the
instructions exactly, it is the "cloud" user).  So you should make sure
that the user CloudStack is using can connect and not just the root user.

Best regards,
