Subject Re: Unable to install CloudStack 4.0 (build 140) on vSphere5.1 using burbank-systemvm-08012012.ova
Date Sun, 31 Mar 2013 13:20:09 GMT
I'm personally comfortable with centOS, I believe there is a sizeable Ubuntu user base. Your
cloudstack management server can run within a vm. Just make sure the hypervisor it resides
on wont be under the control of cloudstack.

Help is what we're here for, feel free to post more questions if you get stuck or need advice.
