Subject Re: DevCloud2, not seeing "tiny Linux" template
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 03:11:58 GMT
Thanks, setting host= and restarting before deploying the
zone fixed the missing template issue.

- Yes, I'm building and running the management server within devcloud2.
- Yes, I followed that deploydb step from the wiki.
- Local storage is enabled for the zone.

I can now create an instance without disk and login.

The troubleshooting section already mentions "host", but I thought the
other ip was okay since it also resolved.
