Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-1004) add to install guide: fqdn required when adding secondary storage
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 20:36:13 GMT
Noa Resare created CLOUDSTACK-1004:

             Summary: add to install guide: fqdn required when adding secondary storage 
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1004
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
            Reporter: Noa Resare
            Priority: Minor

I set up a fresh test install of cloudstack 4.0 now and ran into some problems. It turned
out that the secondary storage VM could not mount the secondary storage via NFS because the
NFS URI configured when setting up the zone only held the hostname and not hostname plus fully
qualified domain name. 

This worked fine when testing mounts form the hypervisors (that had a properly configured
search path) but the secondary storage VM doesn't have it's domain configured to match the
rest of the machines, so secondary storage operation failed.

The error I got in the logfile was kind of unhelpful when tracking down this, so a brief note
in the installation instruction would have been nice.

I propose we change item 11 of section 6.2.2 of the installation instruction, replacing "The
IP address of the server" with "The IP address or fully qualified hostname of the server.
Please note that only the hostname will not work, as the secondary storage VM will not be
able to properly resolve the hostname"
