Subject Re: CloudStack fails to deploy SSVM
Date Thu, 03 Dec 2015 19:33:14 GMT

you can get an excerpt from my management-server.log at level DEBUG at
the log sais "no pool found" but I can see the primary storage mounted in
the VMware Virtual Center. So, I assume the missing pool is the secondary
storage pool.
do we have a chicken & egg problem: to deploy the SSVM I need the secondary
storage and to access the secondary storage I need the SSVM
