not reflect this download source (see sql below).  Although the template is correct, something
about this mechanism that goes out of band to seed the template does not feel right.  Why
not have the management server process be the one to download the template and place it on
the secondary storage?  The initial entry can be part of the sql scripts so no need for the
install template script. This would also make the upgrade process simpler so that one does
not have to add the new template before shutting down the management process, an entry could
be made by the upgrade sql.

default vhd-util in 6.2 has appropriate functions.  Install doc should state this.

versions. It should be placed here:  /usr/share/cloudstack-management/webapps/client/WEB-INF/classes/scripts/vm/hypervisor/xenserver

security groups otherwise will fail.  It is my understanding that ova is ok without SG but
this is not possible as you can’t add hosts with ova.

work or is misleading.  I hoped it would allow me to request an IP from my range but I am
guessing it is for something else and does not apply to my offering type.  Is it possible
to disable this screen so my users are not confused?
