This Readme contains information about NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.2 issues you might encounter. The Readme is divided into the following sections:
The following issues might be encountered during Cloud Manager installation:
The Cloud Manager Orchestration installation media does not include the RHEL monitoring packages.
If you want to monitor RHEL resources, we recommend that you download Ganglia 3.1.7 from the SourceForge Web site and install it on the resources to be monitored. Create a .conf file similar to one that exists on a SLES machine, editing the node name in the file so that the monitoring metrics display for the resource in the Orchestration Console.
If you do not install the Cloud Manager Monitoring Server package during the installation of the Cloud Manager Orchestration components, later attempts to set up the server for high availability by running the zos_server_ha_post_config.sh script fail.
Workaround: If you intend to use the Orchestration Server in a high availability environment, you must install the Cloud Manager Monitoring Server package with it.
For information about the Cloud Manager Monitoring installation pattern, see NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.2 Installation Planning Guide.
For information about installing the Monitoring pattern in YaST, see Step 5 in the NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.2 Orchestration Server High Availability Configuration Guide.
For information about configuring Cloud Manager Orchestration Monitoring, see NetIQ Cloud Manager 2.1.2 Orchestration Installation Guide.
The following issues might be encountered with the Cloud Manager Application components:
A Cloud Manager user might see intermittent display problems in the Cloud Manager Web console interface where some tabs are not properly displayed.
If you encounter this problem, we recommend that you restart the Cloud Manager Application Server.
The setup and monthly costs for add-ons in a Cloud Manager business service cost report are not currently included the contract costs for the business service.
We recommend that you manually calculate the add-on costs, adding them to the other business service costs for an accurate total. You can also view the add-on costs on individual workloads or the business service.
The following issues might be encountered with the Cloud Manager Orchestration components:
The following information is included in this section:
Beginning with the 2.1.2 release, NetIQ Cloud Manager deploys workloads managed by the VMware ESX hypervisor only into resource pools that have been configured on an associated cluster. This requires that the Cloud Manager administrator assign these VMware resource pools to NetIQ Cloud Manager resource groups.
The following information is included in this section:
In the Orchestration Console, when you perform a Move operation on a Citrix Xen VM that includes a VM snapshot, the move of the VM itself is performed, but its associated snapshots do not move with it. Those snapshot disk files remain in the source repository.
Currently, there is no workaround for this issue.
Deployed Windows 2003 VMs in a Citrix XenServer environment render a Service Control Manager error at login time as the workload is booting. Information from the Windows Event viewer leads to a PSOSysprep service that has failed to start.
At the fully deployed stage of the Windows workload lifecycle in Cloud Manager, the PSOSysprep service has already executed and is no longer needed. You can disregard the error.
