    UEC, dhcp works;ubuntu server + uec packages, dhcp doesn't work

    Hi,

    I'm trying to install an eucalyptus cloud using ubuntu server 10.04 from an usb memory stick.

    If at the beginning of the installation process I choose to install the 'Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud', everything goes fine and all required processes are started (during the installation I demand to install the cloud controller, a cluster controller, walrus and a storage controller).

    But if I choose to install an 'Ubuntu Server', and then I manually install the packages (apt-get install eucalyptus-cloud eucalyptus-cc eucalyptus-walrus eucalyptus-sc) then _not_ all processes are started: the dhcp server is not running, and in fact /var/run/eucalyptus/net is empty.

    Why can this be? Am I supposed to configure the dhcp server manually in the latter case?

    Regards, and thank you for your help,

    Small update: dhcp doesn't work either when installing Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud.

    Very simple question: is the administrator who is supposed to start dhcp manually?

    Hi,
    Here are the steps for a correct package install: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC/PackageInstall
    However, as you noticed CDInstall is more streamlined and easier to debug

    I believe the answer to your question is yes. You will have to setup dhcp yourself. With the CD install you are prompted for dhcp information. When you apt-get the packages yourself you must do several setups yourself.
