installing cloudstack with ubuntu server

after a fresh install of  ubuntu 12.04

using http://cloudstack.apache.org/docs/en-US/Apache_CloudStack/4.0.0-incubating/html-single/Installation_Guide/#management-server-installation-overview

works out like this

  1. echo "deb http://cloudstack.apt-get.eu/ubuntu precise 4.0" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudstack.list
  2. wget -O - http://cloudstack.apt-get.eu/release.asc|apt-key add -
  3. apt-get update
  4. apt-get install cloud-client-ui
  5. apt-get install mysql-server nfs-kernel-server
  6. cloud-setup-databases cloud:secret --deploy-as=root:password
  7. cloud-setup-management

now go to  http://server:8080/client/ and login as admin/password

you should read the manual and do nfs etc like this
  1. mkdir -p /export/primary
  2. mkdir -p /export/secondary
  3. echo "/export *(rw,async,no_root_squash)" >> /etc/exports
  4. exportfs -a
  5. put this into /etc/default/nfs-kernel-server
  1.  /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
  2. mkdir -p /mnt/primary /mnt/secondary
  3. mount -v -t nfs ubuntu:/export/secondary /mnt/secondary
  4. mount -v -t nfs ubuntu:/export/primary /mnt/primary
  5. /usr/lib/cloud/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
      you can run kvm on the box too if you want https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM/Installation

      sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin ubuntu-vm-builder bridge-utils
      optionally sudo modprobe kvm
      optionally sudo adduser `id -un` libvirtd
