StormGrind | CirrAS | Running On VMware/Xen/KVM

Version 2

    Currently if you're running CirrAS in a VMware or Xen or KVM environment you must tell somehow JBoss AS instances where the loadbalancer (front-end appliance) is located.

    Required steps

    To run CirrAS on you must edit /etc/sysconfig/jboss-as6 file in all back-end appliances.

    Example

    If your back-end appliance is running on node with 172.16.10.134 IP and front-end appliance has a 172.16.10.133 IP address, edit /etc/sysconfig/jboss-as6 file like this:

    JBOSS_VERSION=6.0.0.M2
    JBOSS_HOME=/opt/jboss-as6

    JBOSS_GOSSIP_PORT=12001
    JBOSS_GOSSIP_REFRESH=5000
    JBOSS_SERVER_PEER_ID=134

    JBOSS_PROXY_LIST=172.16.10.133:80
    JBOSS_IP=172.16.10.134


    Note: Remeber to add valid port to JBOSS_PROXY_LIST!

    VMware note

    Please make sure, that after you add appliances to ESX/ESXi inventory you have selected valid Network label. CirrAS default is NAT on VMware personal (Fusion, Workstation) and VM Network on VMware enterprise (ESX/ESXi). You can change this in VMware settings after importing to invoentory an appliance.
