Subject Re: Adding Hosts to XenCenter Pool
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2016 16:47:54 GMT
The problem is that for Xen1 and Xen2, the mgmt. interface is NIC4, while for Xen3, the mgmt.
interface is Bond4+5.  According to docs, incoming server should not have any bond configurations,
it will automatically get those from the pool once it becomes a pool member.

What you need to do is 1) wipe out all bond assignments on Xen3; 2) assign mgmt. IP to NIC4,
 3) join Xen3 into the pool.  You can assign any storage IPs for Xen3 after it has joint the
pool.

PS:  if this is a brand new pool,  I would recommend that you rebuild the pool so that the
mgmt. NIC is also a bond.

    Ok so do I have to change my existing pool hosts to have a bond? Is that the issue ?

    I changed my "name" of the Box 4+5 to MGMT to match what my pool has and same thing error.

    Super XenServer related but GRRRR!!!!!
    http://screencast.com/t/2qpuXJaR9rhU
    
    Xen3 is the server I want to add to the pool of xen1 and xen2
    
    I see my Management is setup on all three IP's are reachable since my xencenter server
can see everything for both groups of servers.  
    
    Only difference is Management is called MGMT as network label on my current pool and Bond
4+5 on the new hosts I want to add.

    That is the error I get when I try to join the pool.
    
    The server joining the pool must have a physical management NIC  (i.e. the management
NIC must not be on a VLAN or bonded PIF)

    Indeed, this is XenServer-specific.
    Start with one host meant to be the initial pool-master. Say: configure these trunks and
networks on just this single host. Don't forget to label these networks to meet the respective
ACS labels.
    If you'ld like add this host to ACS. Can be done now or later.
    Additional hosts meant as additional pool-members shouldn't be configured. Just do a simple
installation and define the hosts management IP *on one of the meant-to-be MGMT trunk-ports*.
    Join the addtitional host to the pool-master and you're done. The pool- configuration
will be populated to all new pool-members. I'ld recommend to use the identical NICs on every
host - that's way easier.
