Building Citrix Cloud Platform on CentOS for my Home Lab

Build Citrix Cloud Platform Server on CentOS
NOTE: this document is a first draft – this was a quick setup in a dev environment where the host, management and NFS services were all on the same box. I got it working, hopefully this helps anyone else trying to do the same.

‘#’ = type in and then run this command
‘FILE=’ = Edit this file in the listed location
ERROR: if you get this error try the following listed steps.
SELECT: = option to choose when offered list or running install script

Download CENT OS from CentOS mirror – http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/6/
Do initial GUI config and then
Log into the box and do the following step by step

FILE= /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
HWADDR=52:54:00:B9:A6:C0
NM_CONTROLLED=no
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPADDR=172.16.10.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=172.16.10.1
DNS1=8.8.8.8
DNS2=8.8.4.4

#chkconfig network on
#service network start

ERROR:RETNETLINK answers: File Exists – #service network restart

FILE= /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
172.16.10.2 srvr1.cloud.priv

#hostname –fqdn
ERROR: check the above command returns the FDQN not an unknown error – if unknown
FILE= /etc/sysconfig/network – set the hostname to be that in your /etc/hosts file (ensure they match)

#service network restart
#setenforce 0

FILE= /etc/selinux/config
SELINUX=permissive

#yum –y update
#yum –y install ntp
#chkconfig ntpd on
#service ntpd start

START DIFFERENCES (xenserver vs apache cloud stack)
FILE= /etc/ntp.conf
server 0.xenserver.pool.ntp.org
server 1.xenserver.pool.ntp.org
server 2.xenserver.pool.ntp.org
server 3.xenserver.pool.ntp.org

download cloudstack platform 3.0.6-rhel6.3.tar.gz to the VM from mycitrix.com
mount the centOS DVD back to the VM that you used to install the device (according to citrix literature – this is required though it was never really called)

#mount –t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media

Create local REPO
FILE= /etc/yum.repos.d/centosdvd.repo
[rhel]
name=rhel6
baseurl=file:///media
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

# tar xzf Cloudstackplatform3.0.6-rhel6.3.tar.gz
# cd Cloudstackplatform3.0.6-rhel6.3.tar.gz

INSTALL THE CITRIX CLOUDPLATFORM MANAGEMENT TOOLS
# ./install.sh

# service rpcbind start
# service nfs start
# chkconfig nfs on
# chkconfig rpcbind on
