Subject Re: ACS 4.4 XenServer 6.2 how to upgrade to ACS 4.4.1
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2014 13:46:32 GMT
steps are different for each cloudstack version, for example upgrading from 4.3 would be slightly
different then 4.2 or 4.1 and also upgrading is different for each hypervisor type and also
depends on your setup. I know you need step by step instructions but they are all different.
best is googling "upgrading cloudstack from 4.3 to 4.4" and in docs those steps are very well
documented, I used the same steps and if you cant find the link for docs I can email it to
you. 

I was getting "W2012 is not supported on xenserver" error (I was getting "not enough capacity"
cryptic error message from cloudstack and after digging a day or so I found the real reason
for failing vm was xenserver, according to cloudstack is not capable of running W2012, which
is not the case) and after choosing w2008 for template and not choosing W2008R2, I was able
to install W2012 so try this solution first before upgrading and it should resolve it,
