Register the Storage Controller

This topic describes how to register a Storage Controller (SC) with the Cloud Controller (CLC).

To register the Storage Controller service with the Eucalyptus cloud
  1. Copy the security credentials from the CLC to each machine running Storage Controller services. Run this command on the CLC host machine:
    clcadmin-copy-keys -z ZONE HOST

    For example:

    clcadmin-copy-keys -z zone-1
  2. On the CLC host machine, run the following command:
    euserv-register-service -t storage -h IP -z ZONE SVCINSTANCE


    • IP is the IP address of the SC you are registering with this CLC.
    • ZONE name should be a descriptive name for the zone controlled by the CC. For example: zone-1. An SC must have the same ZONE name as the CC in the same zone.
    • SVCINSTANCE must be a unique name for the SC service. We recommend that you use a short-hand name of the IP address or hostname of the machine, for example: sc-IP_ADDRESS or sc-HOSTNAME.
    Note: We recommend that you use IP addresses instead of DNS names when registering Eucalyptus services.

    For example:

    euserv-register-service -t storage -h -z zone-1 sc-
    Important: The SC automatically goes to the BROKEN state after being registered with the CLC; it will remain in that state until you explicitly configure the SC by configuring the backend storage provider (later). For more information, see About the BROKEN state.
  3. Repeat the above steps for each Storage Controller in each zone.
  4. Verify that the Storage Controller service is registered with the following command:
    euserv-describe-services SVCINSTANCE

The registered Storage Controller service is now ready for your cloud.
