Subject Re: Unable to download CentOS 5.5 nogui (KVM)
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 09:33:08 GMT

My /etc/exports file contains /export

A little background about what I am trying to do is as follows.

(a) I want to set up cloud on two machines. I installed Mgmt Server & NFS
on one machine with static ip and cloud stack agent on another
machine with static ip Both machines are connected through
crossover cable.

(b) Mgmt server node has two interfaces one wired eth0 and the other one
wireless wlan0. I can get internet access through wireless mode only and
wireless lan gets dynamic ip (e.g., 10.244.x.x) through dhcp server.

(c) Since I need to get access to internet from mgmt server node which is
bound with static ip, i configured the same node as software
router by following steps given at

(d) Now i am able to execute wget --bind-address
from mgmt server node successfully.

(e) Likewise for cloudstack agent node which is having ip
address, i made mgmt server node as default gateway. After this
I am able to ping mgmt server from cloudstack agent node using ping
-I192.168.1.5 and also able to access internet from cloudstack
agent node.

(f) I followed step e for system vm too.

After executing from SSVM console on cloudstack agent node i
observed following output.

First DNS server is
Good can ping DNS server
Good: DNS resolves
nfs is currently mounted
Mount point is /mnt/Secstorage/8a818.....
Good: Can write to mount point
Management server is
Good: Can connect to management server port 8250
Good: Java process is running.

What I noticed earlier was when I executed ssvm-check script the output was
shown as NFS server is, Try manually mounting
.... but in cloud.log the exception i saw was something like unable to

I do not how why I am unable to reproduce the same. Now the same script
seems to work properly and the cloud.log entry is showing snapshots
directory created/exists on SECONDARY Storage.

(g) But still I am not seeing any download progress information under
status column of Templates->CentOS GUI (KVM) page
