Hi Tino,

I have change the the vmwarerc file setting the creditals, then I rebooted OpenNebula, but the error still.

The file vmwarerc is right now:

# User configurable variables (Ruby syntax)
LIBVIRT_URI   = "esx://@HOST@/?no_verify=1"

# Username and password of the VMware hypervisor
USERNAME      = "oneadmin"
PASSWORD      = "mypassword"

# Loading the vmware library for mads
# Please leave this uncommented
load ENV['ONE_LOCATION'] + "/lib/ruby/vmwarelib.rb"


Is everything ok?

Hi Juan,

Yes, you need to install VMware Server on the nodes.

About the error, did you edit $ONE_LOCATION/etc/vmwarerc accordingly? You need to set the credentials of the VMware Server at least.

Hi all,

I'm starting configuring OpenNebula and I'm getting some trouble, both trying to configure it right and finding documentation, mostly because I want to use it with vmware support to still using the vmware server virtual machines I already have, at least I hope I could do that, if that's not possible I'll stop using OpenNebula.

Until now I have installed OpenNebula 2.2 on a server (sigcloud01), in this server I've installed libvirt and the vmware extension (vmware-2.2.0.tar.gz). Also I have one host node (sigcloud02) on which I've installed VMWare Server 2.0.2. According to the posts/docs I read I think it's necessary to install vmware server on the client node or it isn't, so I'm not sure.

I also have installed SunStone on the OpenNebula Server.

At this point when I add a host to opennebula it always is in ERR status.

The command I use is: onehost create sigcloud02 im_vmware vmm_vmware tm_vmware

The oned.log says:
Fri Jul 15 17:55:11 2011 [ReM][D]: HostAllocate method invoked
Fri Jul 15 17:55:18 2011 [ReM][D]: HostPoolInfo method invoked

Fri Jul 15 17:55:18 2011 [InM][E]: Error monitoring host 2 : MONITOR FAILURE 2 Could not monitor host sigcloud02.

Some help will be wellcome!

Thank you in advance,

Asunto: [one-users] OpenNebula OCCI 1.1


I've successfully installed OpenNebula Express, for test purposes, using 2 machines.

Now I'm struggling to get the OCCI Server up following this wiki : http://dev.opennebula.org/projects/ogf-occi/wiki/Occi_02
and using this file: http://dev.opennebula.org/attachments/download/376/ogf-occi-0.2.zip

occi-server.conf  and occi-one.conf are similar to : http://www.mail-archive.com/users@lists.opennebula.org/msg03257.html

occi-one.conf : http://pastebin.com/nAW16qpc
occi-server.conf : http://pastebin.com/tLpHB12K

When startin gthe server i get :

oneadmin at amine-front:~$occi-server start
Error executing /usr/lib/one/ruby/cloud/occi/occi-server.rb.
oneadmin at amine-front:~$ occi-server stop
occi-server stopped

The only line of the log is : Error starting server: No VM_TYPE defined.

The other problem is :

oneadmin at amine-frontend:~$ occi-compute --username oneadmin --password oneadmin list
Error connecting to server (Connection refused - connect(2)).
Server: localhost:4567

The installation is system wide, hence I have the following schema:

oneadmin at amine-front:~$ ls /etc/one/
auth                         im_kvm                           occi-server.conf            tm_lvm
defaultrc                   im_xen                            occi-server.conf.old      tm_nfs
ec2query_templates  occi-one.conf                   occi-server.conf.orig     tm_ssh
econe.conf               occi-one.conf.old              occi_templates            vmm_ec2
hm                           occi_one_templates         oned.conf                    vmm_sh
im_ec2                     occi_one_templates.old    tm_dummy                  vmm_ssh
Best Regards.
