No change.  But a good thought.  MS and the NFS server are on, while the 'management' traffic for the zone is on  NFS server is set to allow connection for that network. 
  And I can mount the primary and secondary directories from the SSVM 

My understanding is the port 8250 is not SSL.  It acts like the SSVM is 
trying to use SSL but failing.  Is there a way to switch it to non SSL?

 Most I've resolved, but I wanted to share.  I'm using CentOS 6.5 and XenServer 6.2.  Both
have the latest updates installed.  And I'm using an external MariaDB 5.5.35 server and an
external NFS server (both primary and secondary storage).  I'm following these instructions:

if I manually try to start the cloudstack-managment service.  I assume that's just a documentation
problem and that I'm supposed to run cloudstack-setup-management.

 But there are two lines that are invalid, at least to MariaDB.

the service.
