Re: [VOTE] Apache CloudStack 4.11.2.0 RC5


Hi Samuel,

The upgrade notes do mention that you need to use  Other Linux (64bit) for vmware systemvmtemplate while registering the template prior to upgrade (pl see docs website). The reason for this is because newer vmware versions have deprecated older guets os like debian7. Glad you're finding that provide remedy to your VR memory issue.

For your VPN issue, can you first tune and share the strongswan config that works for you. I can then help you with the next steps on creating a bugfix for 4.11.30 and advise you how to create and apply a custom systemvm.iso file.

Regards,
Rohit Yadav

Hi Rohit I think I've found something regarding memory issues with vmware: Schema-update only updates default system-vm, but not newly registered ones: https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/blob/master/engine/schema/src/main/resources/META-INF/db/schema-41000to41100.sql: 448: -- Use 'Other Linux 64-bit' as guest os for the default systemvmtemplate for VMware 449: -- This fixes a memory allocation issue to systemvms on VMware/ESXi 450: UPDATE `cloud`.`vm_template` SET guest_os_id=99 WHERE id=8; When I registered the new templates I selected Debian something as OS type. I now changed this to "Other Linux (64bit)", which is what above update is doing, and I can see significantly less memory used by VRs. I do not understand the reasons behind this behavior, I tried also other settings (Debian 9 64-bit, Other 3.x Linux), neither seem to handle memory well... As for the VPN part, you suggested > you can build a custom systemvm.iso file with those settings. Is it possible to simply replace the systemvm.iso file on mgmt-server, remove it from secondary and restart mgmt-server? Maybe you can point me here in the right direction.
