Subject Re: InsufficientServerCapacityException - Unsure Why
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:08:40 GMT
Do you see any work item pending for Virtual Router r-4-VM in “op_it_work” table ?
If there are any, remove those entries and try VM deployment again.

I see in the logs that VR has a task pending
2014-07-07 10:28:15,934 WARN  [cloud.vm.VirtualMachineManagerImpl] (Job-Executor-5:job-48
= [ 22369802-b5aa-4b5a-a26d-1fab11241551 ]) The task item for vm VM[DomainRouter|r-4-VM] has
been inactive for 418531

I'm still not really spotting anything indicating why it's not using the host, but I suspect
that's just because I don't really know what I'm looking for - so I've zipped the whole log
for today and stuffed it on dropbox at

Hopefully someone who's used cloudstack a lot more will have more success!

I'm going back over everything and I've noticed something else - everywhere I've looked for
how to use local storage says I should change two global settings;

  * = true
  * = true

However I'm looking at my global settings and only the first exists (which I have set to true).

Ah, so when looking back a bit further before (I was kind of only looking for exceptions higher
up before now), I've just spotted this...

ing other available hosts

That's the one and only host - so I'm guessing that has something to do with it!

When you see such an error - there usually a predecessor message that says CloudStack checked
for X, Y and Z and found no suitable resources based on your configuration.

Put the logs on pastebin or some other site (strip out any private info you dont want to share).
I would also  recommend cloudstack 4.3.1 (which is not officially out yet) but should come
thru in the next several weeks. Its latest stable release of CloudStack 4.3.0 - with latest
bug fixes.

I've put a build for folks who want to try it out until we complete official release of ACS
4.3.1 process.

Unzip tgz and it should have required RPMs with both Open Source and Non-Open Source modules.

I've been putting together a cloudstack set-up for experimentation purposes - right now we're
just trying to compare different platforms for private cloud infrastructure before we start
getting too in depth with any of them.

I've added the cloudstack 4.2 apt repository, and I'm running on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and I believe
I've followed all the installation guides correctly at the various stages.

We've set up a management server, which is also an NFS server, however 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

However, when I try to add an instance, I receive an 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.

Any pointers for how I can further diagnose this would be great - thanks in advance!
