Subject RE: VMWare 5.1 Support
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 15:20:30 GMT
Hi,

I think that should not matter whether you use ISCSI or NFS for primary storage from the point
of view of CloudStack.
It would deploy templates the same way I'd say.
In my test environment there is 5.1 since my last upgrade attempt from 3.0.2 to 4.0 (months
ago).
I'm not sure if adding a new cluster is different in the later CS versions but my CS 3.0.2
+ Esxi 5.1 (upgrade from ESX4.1, pre-existing cluster) works just fine.
After 4.1 -> 5.1 upgrade the only thing I needed to do is to merge the Management and Storage
VMK interfaces, than CS reconnected an started using the upgraded cluster as normal.
All functions does work apart from I cannot deploy Win2012 nor Win8 vms as the CS code does
not understand those.
It always defaults back to "Other" but the windows vms will not work with "Other" OS type
setting.

Regards

Thanks for the precision Jake. We are trying to use VMFS with an iSCSI backend, and we run
into weird issues using 4.0.1. In fact, we are not able to spin any VM using templates.

We will grab the 4.1 branch, and test it :) Like I said, we will log bugs in the BTS in the
process.
