Changing Host Password Doesn't Work

There is a section in the Admin Guide for changing the host password- the instructions look to be the same for older versions of Cloudstack 3.x, but I am running 3.0.5. Unfortunately these instructions are not working for me. I only have one host added in my zone, so finding the host ID in the database was easy. However, when I tried to change the password, I got this:

mysql> update cloud.host set password='password' where id=1;
ERROR 1054 (42S22): Unknown column 'password' in 'field list'

Furthermore, I tried running "show columns from cloud.host;" and I did not see a "password" field. I also tried doing this on another management server running CloudPlatform 3.0.5 and I don't see a password field in cloud.host

So is has this password field been moved somewhere else in 3.0.5 or are my servers just wacky?

Thanks.

How do you change the default URL for Cloud Platform

How do you change the default URL for Cloud Platform

I am setting up a private cloud and I want to change the default URL from http://<server>:8080/client to simply htp://<server>. This would make things a lot easier for users to remember.

The documentation on customisation simply says to refer to the tomcat website which is not much use if you don't know where to start looking.

Does anyone have any information on making this change?

Cheers

James

Infrastructure counters missing

I have an installation of CloudPlatform 3.0.5 patch 1 and on the infrastructure page I do not see any counters of how many zones, pods, clusters etc I have, I have to click each section and count them to find out. Is there a problem with this page?

Please see the attached file for reference to what I am refering

I have tried several browsers and they are all the same.

Thanks

CloudPlatform Management Server Shuts Itself Down
Avatar

CloudPlatform Management Server Shuts Itself Down

Hello,

I've just done a fresh install of Xenserver 6.0.2, and I've created a VM for the CloudPlatform management server using CentOS 6.3 64-bit. Everything installed fine, as I've previously worked out the bumps installing older versions of CloudPlatform. Until... I tried to setup a zone. The wizard created all the networking and storage, but when it got to the "Adding a Host" step, the management server suddenly shutdown!

After starting the management server back up a couple times, I found these lines in /var/log/cloud/management/management-server.log:

2012-10-18 18:00:45,068 WARN [cloud.vm.VirtualMachineManagerImpl] (AgentTaskPool-1:null) Found an alien VM Cloudstack Mgmt
2012-10-18 18:00:45,178 WARN [cloud.vm.VirtualMachineManagerImpl] (AgentTaskPool-1:null) Stopping a VM which we do not have any record of Cloudstack Mgmt

So now the management server will turn itself off as long as the cloud-management service is running. The only way around it is to reinstall the software and database on the management.

I've never had this problem with Cloudstack before; anyone else seeing this problem? How can I avoid it?

VM instances not removed from cloud.vm_instance tabl

We have configured the expunge.delay and expunge.interval settings to 300 but VM instances are not being removed from the vm_instance table in the Cloud DB. The state shows "expunging" and the removed column is populated with the date and time when the VM was deleted by the user. Is the vm_instance suppose to keep these rows forever? I was expecting these rows to be deleted at some point.

Compute Issues after Installation and adding hosts and compute on CloudStack3

Compute Issues after Installation and adding hosts and compute on CloudStack3

Hi All,

I have following setup:

CloudStack 3 latest till date of writing on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64-Bit

Total 2 Nodes

1 is the management node and compute node as well (installed both management, database and agent(for compute)
1 is compute node only

1 Zone, 1 Pod, 1 Cluster and 2 Hosts in cluster.

Using KVM on both machines

IP address scheme used: 192.168.1.0/24

All Hosts added and I can access the management web portal as well and it is showing 22GHz CPU and 14GB Ram in Infrastructure as well with both hosts up and running.

I can ping both of them and mount the nfs on both without any issues.

When I try to create an instance with Medium , Small or any other that has 2 Cores assigned with 2GHz each and 2GB Ram it works fine if I try to assign any thing more than that it gives error on creating the Instance (VM)

Management and Compute node: Intel Core i5 3.10GHz , 8GB Ram, 300GB HDD, Intel Mobo

Compute Node: Intel Core i5 2.4GHz, 6GB Ram Memory, 640GB HDD, Intel Mobo

Please advise what shall I do now to create one big instance having 6 or 8 cores with atleast 15-16GHz performance and 8-10GB Ram memory.

Is it possible to share a ESXi server between vCenter and CloudPlatform?

Is it possible to share a ESXi server between vCenter and CloudPlatform?

This is so that we could allocate existing ESX servers to the cloud, they may already have a few VMs non CloudPortal related running in them.
Wondering if we could have for instance if we could use the processing power idle on those ESX servers and allocate it to our new cloud environment, unless CloudPlatform needs to have server dedicated to it 100 percent.
Thanks

Sizing up Cloudstack environment

Sizing up Cloudstack environment

Hello,

I'm trying to calculate the resources needed to deploy a cloud in our datacenter and see if we have all the required equipment as far as blades, storage and networking is concerned.

We are looking at deploying 96 blades, 72 GB RAM with dual CPUs and six core per processor.

My question is, how many VMs can we have max in this type of configuration? Assuming 40GB of space for primary storage for each VM, how much storage would we need? What type of storage will I need, fiber, sata, iscsi, combination? On the networking side I think a /20 will be fine as it will support 4K hosts.

Any help you can provide or reference material would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

LDAP Authentication in Cloudstack

Hey All,

i have some trouble with LDAP Authentication.

I use cloudstack 3.0.5 with an Microsoft Active Directory.

I Fired up an LDAP API config Call and the log says that ldap ist configured an the hostname of my DC is printed on the screen.

However, i cannot see the ldap values when i search for ldap in global configuration.

I created a user in the OU which is the basedn but authentication does not work...

What i not understand - on the logon Page of CP, what i have to fill in domain? When i create a user in Cloudstack and assign them to a domain i must fill in this cloudstack domain on the login screen so that i able to logon.

But what is when i use LDAP?

Must i fill in the Domain field the domain of my AD?

And whats about the user creation process?

i create a user in the AD and then in cloudstack, but what i have to fill in at the password field? The same?

Sorry but the documentation is not a good help...

How to activate Web Encryption secret key com.cloud.utils.crypt.EncryptionSecretKeySender

Hey,

Set up everything around the CloudStack and the documentation was really good, until its time to use it.

It says in the documentation that:
If the encryption type is set to “web,” the administrator runs the utility com.cloud.utils.crypt.EncryptionSecretKeySender, which relays the key to the Management Server over a known port.

What is com.cloud.utils.crypt.EncryptionSecretKeySender ??? I´vre googled, Ive tried installing something but I cant figure out how to use this Encruption package. And since there isnt anything on the web it makes be frustrated..

So any help on this would be appreciated.

Can I change xen.setup.multipath to true?

Can I change xen.setup.multipath to true?

Hello there.

I'm managing CloudPlatform(Cloudstack) 3.0.2 with XenServer 6.0.2.

I set the global configuration xen.setup.multipath as false because we didn't have a plan to use XenServer ISCSI Multi-path function at that time.

But these days we are considering the use of XenServer ISCSI Multi-path function with Hitachi AMS2500 to increase the performance.

We have 2 zones, 3 PODs(16 XenServer each) in each zone and we are planning to add another PODs to each zone with XenServers enabled the ISCSI Multi-path function.

I have 2 questions.
1. Do I have to change xen.setup.multipath parameter to enable Xenserver ISCSI Multi-path?
2. Are there any possible side effects that affect to the present 3 PODs?

Please let me know.
Thank you in advance.

Load Balancer API commands etc commands with Netscaler

Load Balancer API commands etc commands with Netscaler

Hi All,

I am looking for advice and/or documentation on how the CS Load Balancer API commands work and how they interact with Netscaler.

What I intend to do:
Write a script to enable a VM to assign itself to Netscaler through the CS API.

To better understand how it all works together, I would need more information on exactly how e.g. the createLoadBalancerRule (and the other) LB commands work and how they interact with Netscaler, also what settings it adds/changes on Netscaler. Without direct access to a working setup of CS and NS and trying it out, it's kind of hard to know!

I assume I can use "assignToLoadBalancerRule" to add a VM's private IP address to a Netscaler Service Group. Is this correct? Is there any more detailed documentation on this please, I can't find any?

Thanks for any direction.

Cheers,
