private cloud infrastructure before we start getting too in depth with any
of them.

we're interested in using local storage for the majority of things, and
have also set up a single KVM host which I believe is all configured
correctly to use local storage. If I look at the dashboard, I'm told I have
more than enough resource in every section to create an instance the size I
want to - which is a small offering I've created with just 1.0GHz and 1GB
of RAM, with local storage. The host's not very powerful, but according to
the dashboard I am using 1.50GHz/5.87GHz, 1.38GB/7.80GB, 3.55GB/285.95GB
Secondary Storage, 1.03GB/450.99GB Local Storage and 0.00KB/571.90GB
Primary Storage (I'm assuming that's meant to be a combination of the NFS
server's primary storage offering and the local storage on the host, though
the numbers don't quite make sense at first glance).

InsufficientServerCapacityException and I'm struggling to work out why. I
can't add an instance using a small shared storage offering either, but if
I'm not mistaken that's expected because the zone and host are configured
to use local storage. The only thing I can think of is that the local
storage isn't properly configured, but when I've looked it seems to be.

in advance!

Something that occasionally bites me when deploying on old or deprecated
hardware is that the CPU cores have a lower CPU frequency than the compute

For instance the offering might be 2GHz while the actual hardware core only
is 1.99GHz.

Also check the logs for pointers, put them on pastebin if you want help to
interpret them.
