Hi Kurt,

As Simon is hinting at it looks like you didn’t mount the secondary storage NFS share on
your management server before running:

-m /secondary -u
-h kvm -F"

In other words the template downloaded to the local folder /secondary on the management server
rather than to a mounted NFS share.
If this is the case delete the contents of your local /secondary folder, mount the NFS share
in the same folder and re-run the script above.

With regards to downloading from the GUI – keep in mind you have a chicken-and-egg scenario
– until you have first downloaded the system VM template with the above script CloudStack
can not create a SSVM, hence it will not be able to download any further templates.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the response.

 >> Is your secondary storage on a separate NFS server?

Yeah, we have used separate NFS server.

>> Have you added the secondary storage mount to CloudStack Management?

We had tried this.  But no luck.

162.x.x.x:/export/secondary nfs 913G 2.0G 865G 1% /mnt/secondary

However, we have tried to download a CentOS 6.5 ISO directly using register ISO option from
Management UI. There was no downloading status shows and ready status as no. Please see the
below snippets and attached screen shots.

[root@nfs1 3]# pwd;ll
total 315396
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 322954240 Nov 8 23:45 37ad47be-223d-43ff-ae2c-f10548274c95.qcow2
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 295 Nov 9 04:30

Any idea about this?

If so, have you tried mounting your secondary storage on a different server to make sure the
permissions are set correctly?

Hi There,

We have started to build our own cloud platform on our organization. Our

deployment is like a small scale arch. We have used 4 KVM hyper visor

servers and 1 management server and 3 storage servers. We have

successfully configured all those servers. But while creating the

instance, there were no templates shown on management UI. We have

downloaded the templates using this script


-m /secondary -u

-h kvm -F", it was on secondary partition. But didn't show up there on

management UI. Is there any other thing need to be done to show up

templates on UI?

Any help or suggestions from your end is much appreciated.
