Before adding your hosts in the cloudstack manager you need to pressed the system vm template. This does not go over the process for setting up the storage backend (NFS).
Preseed the System VM template
On the Management Server:
- Create the NFS location to be used for templates in Cloudstack and give access to the Cloudstack manager system. This location is different from where the vm instances will go.
- Make a new directory: [
# mkdir /mnt/secondary]
- Mount the NFS share to the new folder: [
# mount -t nfs <nfsservername or ip>:/nfs/secondary /mnt/secondary/]
- Run this script to download and install the template: [
# /usr/share/cloudstack-common/scripts/storage/secondary/cloud-install-sys-tmplt -m /mnt/secondary -u http://download.cloud.com/templates/acton/acton-systemvm-02062012.qcow2.bz2 -h kvm -F] Note: the path to the script has changed from what it used to be in 4.0
When this is done your ready to login to the cloudstack manager and add hosts.
