Updating my document. All works right now. Multi Compute node, vLAN isolated for mgmt + VM, and vLANs for multi customers #ISAAC #HSLT
Rebuild 3rd DHCP-DNS
Found an incorrect configuration in trunk network. Fixed. The 2nd Compute node we left with provisioning failure yesterday is up. #HSLT

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Goal 3 achieved. Another 2 vLANs created. 2 VMs in vLAN3 and another 2 VMs in vLAN4. They couldn't reach each other.
Still need to debug one of Compute node slow access later today or tomorrow.
Backing up the 3rd DHCP- DNS VM. Done. Moving to goal 3 after lunch.
Disable reserve_dns in webrick webservice. Provisioning works super- fast right now. Before we received time- out err.
Update /etc/resolv.conf to reflect 10.10.0.10. Re- run hyper_bot process. All VM provisioned showed in Console. Goal 2 is done and confirmed
Goal 2 achieved.
Setup and Configuration of #network isolation is done. 2 networks: 172 (mgmt) & 10 (vm). The new VM gets 10 IP now.
Brian asking how #ISAAC handles/ migrates img on #VMware vmdk to #KVM. The answer -> by Image Library #hslt #smartcloud #provisioning
Brian asking how #ISAAC manages multi img being visible to multi groups... the answer is by group- access
Network backs up to work. Uploading another image to make it as the 3rd Firstbox #hslt #isaac #smartprovisioning
Get into IBM office. Sending email to network admin to enable the eth0 port disabled by incorrect bridging My bad. :P

Network configuration work need to be done thru console with network down. I missed this in my doc. Right now, we're OK. Fixed. Leave for today.
We created 2 bridges with STP disabled, which is incorrect. Correcting
ethtool eth0 on Compute node 1 is down. Went to computer room and found the link is yellow, not green. Calling network support
Asking network administrator to isolate 2 * eth1 on Compute node from vLAN172 to vLAN10
We went through Image, Instance launch, Volume, Capture in ~ 15 mins
Now we're going to isolate the network.
Capture a touched/ launched VM in 4~ 5 minutes
Mount the volume to one of 10 launched VMs. Format filesystem. Create file with some content. Umount, attached to another VM. Data persists.
Create and attach 2 volumes in 2 seconds
Registered new image, de- register another one... done in 30 seconds
Start provisioning for 10 VMs. 7 of 10 come out in 40 seconds.
2 Storage and 1 Compute nodes are up. #V7000 storage device attached to a Compute node blocks the install process
Moving the 2nd Firstbox as a VM on to Storage-1
Finished 2 Storage and 1 Compute
