Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xen Cloud Platform disaster

I will wait for the XCP developers to comment since I can’t answer your question but this should not be an issue that we see at all. Not sure what is going on. Hopefully we can get an answer from a developer who is peeking at email over the holidays.

So we are saying that at the moment, if there a power failure, or a reboot for whatever reasopn, we have to completly rebuild ??

The licensing components from XCP should have been removed and this not occur. I have added the xen-api list to this email so the developers can be aware of the situation and offer their guidance. Thanks.

Well, I made the mistake of shutting down my XCP cloud tonight not knowing that XCP licenses expire every 30 days and expired licenses prevent any VMs from being started (and not having any procedure listed anywhere to get a new license). So I reinstall XCP on one machine, get a new 30 day license generated, import the pool data base so the VMs are back and discover it sets the damn license back to the expired date!

So now I'm down totally. I can't start anything, I can't restore anything, I can't regenerate a new license for any of the machines without abandoning everything. Is there ANY way to get a new license on these without starting over from ground zero?
