Most Important thing Activate the Virtualization from the Bios else nothing going to work (This is what I forgot to do)

The The version of Eucalyptus which I got is 3.2 and you can download it from

http://www.eucalyptus.com/download/faststart

This got Eucalyptus over CentOS which we may install for 1 node or multiple node.

For installation over 1 node it’s comparatively easy and fast, So I am just discussing Installation over 2 node .

 

Hardware I got:

 

2 server both identical

quard core intel xeon processor

4GB ram

1TB hardisk

2 Networking Cards

 

1st machine specification

Name of node: MyCloudPortalNode

IP: eth0: 10.20.0.51 (This is for public use)

eth1:10.0.0.1 (This is for private use)

1)Start the System and press F2 key and get into bios.

2)In advance menu “Enable” virualization which was previously disabled. Press F10 to save

3)Press F6 on restart and choose the boot form CD option

4)Insert the Eucalyptus DVD and when it prompts for the options choose for installation of node server

5) when it prompts for the networking IP insert the values which already have provided on the top.

6)It’s going ot create the br0 (Bridge) by itself.

7) Set the ntp server

Yum install ntp

chkconfig ntpd ok

service ntpd start

then check the date by

date

 

Leave this machine just like then and then go for the installation of front controller

 

2nd machine

Name of Node: MyCloudPortalFront

IP: Eth0: 10.2.0.52

Etho1: 10.0.0.2

 

1)Start the System and press F2 key and get into bios.

2)In advance menu “Enable” virtualization which was previously disabled. Press F10 to save

3)Press F6 on restart and choose the boot from CD option

4)Insert the Eucalyptus DVD and when it prompts for the options choose for installation choose install front end.

5) Choose the IP which I have already be defined and then start it

6) when it got start it would ask about the public and private IP

 

don’t change private IP and in public IP provide the IP range which you want to be selected by the VM when this would get ocneected.

7)make all this accordingly and then start the machine.

This would ask about the IP of node on restarting the system after installation being done, enter the IP of nodes then this would prompt for SU password enter it and it is registered 🙂

8)Set the ntp server

Yum install ntp

chkconfig ntpd ok

service ntpd start

 

then check the date

Now both machine common.

Power off all the eucalyptus services

Over Front end

Service eucalyptus-cloud stop

service eucalyptus-cc stop

Over NC

service eucalyptus-nc stop

 

Test euca-describe-availability-zones verbose

 

Output should be like this, I already got 2 Small VM so it’s saying that free is 2/4

euca-describe-availability-zones verbose

AVAILABILITYZONE CLUSTER01 10.0.0.2 arn:euca:eucalyptus:CLUSTER01:cluster:cc_01/

AVAILABILITYZONE |- vm types free / max   cpu   ram  disk

AVAILABILITYZONE |- m1.small 0002 / 0004   1 512 5

AVAILABILITYZONE |- c1.medium 0001 / 0002   2 512 10

AVAILABILITYZONE |- m1.large 0001 / 0002   2   1024 15

AVAILABILITYZONE |- m1.xlarge 0001 / 0002   2   2048 20

AVAILABILITYZONE |- c1.xlarge 0000 / 0001   4   4096 20

For checking the number of VM you may create and other available resources.

 

Now start all three services and navigate your browser to

 

https://<frontendip>:8888 : For creation of VM

Dashboard

https://<frontendip>:8443  : For profile editing


8443

Now go and play with VM 🙂

After creation of VM this is how this will look like when a VM is created and running.

The green tick mark will be different for different kind of things.

Vm_Created
