Subject Re: Failed detecting local storage on XenServer 6.6 slave host
Date Fri, 04 Dec 2015 20:40:00 GMT

Have you enabled local storage within CloudStack (  If
so, its possible local storage implies a CloudStack cluster with only one
host (i.e. you need to break the XenServer pool into independent hosts with
each being in a CloudStack cluster).  I'd need to dig fairly deep in the
code to confirm that theory.

To your question about XenServer Dundee (what you're seeing as 6.6.90),
since it hasn't yet been released by Citrix the visual artifacts (wrong
version number) are to be expected.  Having just checked the database code,
it doesn't look like the work has yet been done to even provide
experimental support for Dundee.  If you would like to remedy that, I think
the community would welcome your contributions, and I could help mentor in
the effort.  Just let me know.
