Subject RE: vmware cluster dedicated storage network
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2014 14:31:54 GMT
Hi Ilya,

So, it looks like the SSVM is establishing a HTTPS connection to the management IP of my ESX
server. Obviously the management ip of the SSVM is on the same network as the management IP
of my ESX host so there are no firewalls in between.

It fails with the following error:

Unable to copy template to primary storage due to exception:Exception: java.io.IOException
Message: Error writing request body to server

But it looks like the path it is trying to write to doesn't actually exist.  It's made a connection
to:

https://192.168.0.36/nfc/52c9914d-220c-abdc-f154-cc9af8a9bbd3/disk-0.vmdk

but that UUID doesn't exist as  a folder in my datastore in vcenter.

The folder I have is:
b0985bce673b37a1b2192b1ce333baa6
and this is where vmware has started to provision the vmdk containers, but at the moment they
are all on 0kb.

Here is how i would troubleshoot to find out.

CloudStack Storage System VM (SSVM), checks if template exists on primary datastore, if it
does, it will link clone, if not, it will deploy to primary storage and then link clone (or
full clone, depending if you have it enabled or not).

This is the part where it fails. To understand where the problems is, SSH into SSVM, and view
the output of /var/log/cloud/some-filename.log

Also, try running this command on SSVM to see if issues are firewall or routing related watch
'netstat -antup'  - look for time_wait and other non-established attempts to your vcenter

I would suspect a firewall related issue.

Regards
ilya

try to spin the vm.  This eventually times out.
