Migrate Primary Storage from one NFS server to Another

Hi,

I have 3 Primary Storage (NFS) in my configuration. One needs to be replaced ASAP. When I try to migrate the VM's and Volumes from this Primary Storage to another using the UI the transfer fails, because of too many nfs errors. I have all of the data backed up. Currently this Primary Storage is in Maintenance Mode.
Is it possible to get another NFS server on the network with the same IP and Cancel Maintenance Mode?
Has anyone tried that before and was succesfull in changing Primary Storage NFS server, while keeping the same IP ?

access the console from external ip address

Hello everyone,

Here's the deal. I did set up of CloudPlatform using a basic zone and the only thing that's missing right now is to access the console from my virtual machines using an external IP address.

I already know that when accessing internally the console proxy redirects everything. But how do I do it externally?

Thanks
Lucas

Secondary storage available to Inet

Anyone have ideas how to make the Seconday Storage available to a public network/Internet?
I know this is a security req...but nevertheless but integration with services already in place with repositories available on the Internet would be cool...

Linked Clones and vCenter

Linked Clones and vCenter

Hi,

When deleting VMs are there any limitations with regards doing this from vCenter? For example with VMware vCloud or VMware View environments, deleting VMs managed by these should not be done through vCenter. Is this the same for Cloudstack/Openstack? Are there any documents that I can reference?

Thanks,
Darren

XenServer upgrades

Any special steps to take when upgrading a XenServer pool used by CloudPlatform? There's a rolling pool upgrade but upgrading each individual node one by one seems safer. Info about the rolling pool upgrade indicates that "VMs will be migrated off the host before it's upgraded". My concern is, will the migration of the VM away from the host somehow cause problems with CloudPlatform? Will CP just accept that the instance migrated away from that host and update its information or will it cause some kind of problem because the action wasn't initiated through the CloudPlatform API?

TIA

Erik

Remote MySQL connection

We have a problem...Trying to install the db on separate node and using RHEL 6.3 and the MySQL.
We get error when trying to install with the cloud-setup-database script: Access Denied
We get error when trying to connect remotely to the MySQL db also:
error 1045 (28000) access denied for user

We have tried skip grant tables command and then we can connect ..BUT not install because there is some check on this "safe mode" (which is good cause you need to have a pwd, of course)

Does anyone have any input on this?
Any ideas?
I am not an MySQL guru ..and have googled this for a day now ;)

2GB SecondaryStorage total size

2GB SecondaryStorage total size

Hello,

On a CloudPlatform 3.0.6, no patches, I have an advanced zone where I need to use as secondary storage a NFS share published from a Windows 2012 machine through NFS File Share services.

The NFS share is on a disk with 2.8TB total and 2.7TB available free space, however CloudPlatfom reports only 2GB total size. If I directly mount the same Windows NFS share to the management server or directly to the XenServer, df -h command reports correctly total and available space of 2.7TB. Because of the 2GB limit, CloudPlatform can't load any template.

How can I make CloudPlatform to correctly see all available space?

Environment:
- CloudPlatform 3.0.6 base
- Hypervisor: XenServer 6.1, hotfixes up to 026
- Management and Mysql servers: CentOS 6.4
- NFS Shares: on Windows Server 2012 Standard

Thanks,
Corneliu

Limits for hosts and vms for CCP 3.0.6 installation

Limits for hosts and vms for CCP 3.0.6 installation

Hello,

I cant find a list of the CCP limits for hosts, vms and so on. Here is a blog I found:
http://blogs.citrix.com/2013/04/09/top-5-questions-from-the-cloudplatform-master-class/
There it is said, that the maximum supported CCP 3.0.6 installation consists of 30.000 hosts with 4 management servers. In a slide from Citrix I read, that with a single management server node I can manage up to 5.000 hosts. Now I am confused ... Can I manage up to 5000 or 7500 hosts with one management server in a CCP 3.0.6 installation? And then I need to know what the maximum vm count is in a CCP 3.0.6 installation. Is there a support article or other document, that lists those maximums/limits?
This is an example for what I am looking for from VMware:
http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2036392

If i can get the supported limits for hosts, vms and management servers in a CCP 3.0.6 installation i would be glad already.

greetings

Security group selection not available during instance creations

Greetings !

Problem - We are not able to view the default security groups or the user created security groups in the Network offerings while adding an Instance.

Scenario - We added a Basic Zone with network offering as "DefaultSharedNetworkOfferingWithSGService" so that we can use security groups options. After downloading the templates and creating security groups, we tried to create an instance with the security groups created, but the list of security groups are not available.

didnt find any errors in the management-server.log

have also attached screenshots

Do we have to enable any other option to use the security groups?

Can anyone guide us in resolving this problem?

Unable to Add Host

Unable to Add Host

I have finished the trial install, logged into the UI and started the initial config of the Cloud trial. I was able to enter the Zone, Cluster, POD and storage information. Finally, I was able to enter the information for the host, which for me is Xenserver 6.2. I enter the IP address (which is pingable) username (root) and password, then select "Launch" on the following screen. Everything appears to be configuring except the host where I receive the message "Unable to Add Host". I checked the /var/log/cloud/management/management-server.log and the access log, but could not find any errors. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Virtual Router VM No operating system found.

Virtual Router VM No operating system found.

Greetings,

I m using CCP , and added a cluster with 2 hosts which has VMware hypervisor.
Now CCP creates 3 internal VM's : Virtual Router VM , Console Proxy VM and System Storage VM.
When I m adding an instance the virtual router VM is restarting and saying
"Warning message from <ipaddress>: No operating system was found. If you have an operating system installation disc, you can insert the disc into the system's CD-ROM drive and restart the virtual machine."

Through vSphere Client console of the virtual router VM if i check also it also displays "No Operating System"

The Virtual Router VM is created by CCP only, then y isnt it able to get the OS?

Kindly guide me as to what i m doing wrong?

CloudPlatform's XenServer cluster limits

As per the Citrix Cloudplatform admin guide, a XenServer cluster can have a maximum of 8 hosts. I'm going to go ahead and configure a new cluster for the 9th host I'd like to add. Does this mean I need to create a new XenServer pool or can I keep adding servers to my existing pool? How about the XenServer pool itself, any limit to the number of servers I should add to it? TIA.

New host failed to connect to secondary storage

I added a new host to the cluster without first configuring the storage network and of course the host failed to connect to the secondary storage and reported such under "General Alerts" on the CP dashboard. I'm wondering if I can' just destroy the current SRs on the host and CP will re-create them or what other steps do I need to take?

TIA

Search-ability or Finding Resources

Search-ability or Finding Resources

Using this in a live environment is easy in the beginning, but as you grow it's incredibly difficult to find things.

For example:
As an admin I go in and see an Account. I can't see which VMs this Account has.
If I go to Instances, I have to know what the label of the VM is to find it. I can't search by Account name.
If I go to Networks, I can randomly scroll down the list by Account holder, but I can't search by Account name.
If I need to find the Virtual router, I can't search by Account name. I have to open every vrouter property to find the one that I want. If I have over 20 this is a long process.

Should I not be able to search by account name (user) and find all the resources assigned to this person? Better yet, have this all on one screen for the CloudStack admin.

Software Router Upgrade / Change Service Offering / Change Storage

Under the software router I can reboot it, shut it down, recreate it but that's it.

How do you change the current service offering that is assigned to it? I have already created software router plans, I just need to be able to change the assigned one.

Also, there does not appear to be a way to move the virtual router between storage devices. Is this possible?
