Cloudmin 5.7 on Solaris 10 Citrix Xenserver 5.6 FP1
Too many workarounds needed.
Several Bugs make it almost impossibe to use in Production.
As full XenCenter acess is needed additionally for system creation, there is no real possibility to use cloudmin for user self service.
1) Memory Allocation
Create System / Create Citrix Xen VM: Resource limit options / Memory allocated to instance
The initial values are nor taken by config. The new machines always have 256MB.
Workaround: Can only be changed in XenCenter to after installation
2) Swap File
Create System / Create Citrix Xen VM: Resource limit options / Swap file size for instance
The initial swap file creation fails with an error:
Creating swap disk of 4 GB .. .. swap creation failed : VDI creation failed : The uuid you supplied was invalid. type: SR uuid:
Workaround: Add swap file after machine creation in a 2nd step
3) creating additional disks fails with wrong size calculation
Resources / Manage Disks:
On a host with 2 local storage repositories this fails: When we create a disk in a second local storage repos, the size calculation is still based on the first storage repos.
Workaround: manually add through XenCenter
For the moment this is our list of the most annoying bugs
