Subject Re: What are the System VM Templates for ASF 4.1 Release?
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 23:12:15 GMT
Checking the docs per Will's request earlier in this thread: I see that the
documented systemvm template URL for VMware (vSphere) changed from 4.0.0 to
4.0.1, but none of the others have been updated. The VMware template
actually went backwards from a newer to an older version. I don't think I
did that, and I'm not sure why it happened. Nor am I sure which one (if
either) is appropriate for 4.1.

4.0.0 docs had:
http://download.cloud.com/templates/burbank/burbank-systemvm-08012012.ova

4.0.1 docs had:
http://download.cloud.com/templates/acton/acton-systemvm-02062012.ova

4.1 doc directory currently has:
http://download.cloud.com/templates/acton/acton-systemvm-02062012.ova

Can Sheng, Kelven, or anyone else shed light on this? Or is this question
now moot, given the discussion on this thread?
