Subject Cross Zone Templates
Date Mon, 26 Jan 2015 21:48:53 GMT
I'm setting up a test zone for a multi-site deployment, and I've thus
far been unable to deploy a VM from our existing templates.

We're using S3 for secondary storage, and we have set up an NFS
staging server in the remote zone.  The management server is able to
mount the NFS store over the site-to-site VPN.

When we attempt to deploy a VM in the new zone, we get "Template <id>
is not available."

It appears that this is because our templates are not set up as "Cross
Zone Templates."

We originally created these templates from existing volumes (e.g.,
installed via ISO, configured, shut down VM, created template from
volume).  I did not see any option in the UI or API to specify it as a
cross zone template, nor do I see a way to update it after the fact
(other than manually editing the database).  This functionality only
seems to be available when Registering a template via a URL, which
isn't any help here.

Is there a reason for this weirdness?

Thank You,
