XOA can't start after installation and contradictory messages
While installing XOA the official way:
[host:~]# bash -c "$(curl -s http://xoa.io/deploy)" Welcome to the XOA auto-deploy script! Network settings: IP address? [dhcp] 10.1.0.4 Netmask? [255.255.255.0] Gateway? 10.1.0.254 dns? [126.96.36.199] NS.ip.address.here Importing XOA VMâŚ Booting XOA VMâŚ There are no suitable hosts to start this VM on. The following table provides per-host reasons for why the VM could not be started: host : Cannot start here [Host cannot attach to network: 77097537-8e7b-f375-abd6-d638ac42abcc (Pool-wide network associated with eth0)] There were no hosts available to complete the specified operation. Waiting for your XOA to be readyâŚ Your XOA is ready on https://10.1.0.4/ Default UI credentials: firstname.lastname@example.org/admin Default console credentials: xoa/xoa VM UUID: e58ce2ec-4fe4-5a9f-70b1-f6a5ca204946
is ready on https://10.1.0.4/?
No, it's not ready. It's shut and the Networking tab in XCP-ng-Center shows:
"Network 0 192.168.100.144".
Maybe the reason is that the address 10.1.0.4 which I'm trying to give to XOA is from one of the VLANs, but the installer tries to use a "Network 0" (which doesn't exist at all, as the NIC is Bond0+1). But why does it configure 192.168.100.144? It doesn't exist here. BTW, at a previous XOA installation the issue was the same, but the (bad) address was 192.168.100.190. Some tip here maybe.
Then I manually start the VM, login at the console and set the correct IP address, but for less experienced users these contradictory messages can be misleading.
- This is an edge case when you can't boot XOA because XAPI tries to find a match to "network 0" of the template (the xva file). Usually, 99% of users have a network 0. That's why you are the first to report this problem. In short, a non-handled error case.
- The "old" IP you can see is the one before changing, the one XOA had before being transformed into a template.
The thing is: this is how XVA files are working, and there's no pre-deploy option to select a network for a XVA.
@olivierlambert I see, thanks.
Anyway, maybe the installation script could check whether the XOA really started and not misleadingly inform
Your XOA is ready on https://10.1.0.4/?
As I said, it's an edge case we didn't think before. So, obviously, we'll improve this (but first we need to reproduce the issue). Can you print the output of
xe network-liston this host? I'm trying to understand why you don't have a network 0.

Thanks, we'll try to see if we could detect this case for an update on deploy script

@olivierlambert You're welcome.
As a start, to prevent false positive message that the XOA VM is ready at some IP address, the script could check the power-state in the result of
# xe vm-list name-label=XOA uuid ( RO) : e58ce2ec-4fe4-5a9f-70b1-f6a5ca204946 name-label ( RW): XOA power-state ( RO): running
(whether running or not).
