Subject RE: Global Parameters
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2013 09:28:34 GMT

Cloudstack build and start the system VMs (SSVM, Console proxy VM, Virtual router) right.

How to use the local storage for the system VMs?

What are the global parameters need to be set?

Default service offerings use shared storage type, Do I need to create service offerings that
will use local storage type?

Do I need to update any table in the Mysql DB?

If anyone used local storage for cloudstack System VMs.

Please provide the steps.

Enabling local storage for userVMs is now done using zone creation wizard (createZone API).
If the zone is already created then you can use "updateZone" API to do that.

About mount.parent setting, this for your hypervisor to automatically mount the secondary
NFS on hypervisor. You don't have to worry about this setting.
