Register your CloudStack cloud with RightScale so that you can use the Dashboard to manage your CloudStack cloud's resources.
Table of Contents
Once you've installed and set up your private CloudStack cloud, you need to register the cloud itself with RightScale so that it can be accessed through the RightScale platform.
Note: If you do not see this tab, your RightScale account is not enabled for adding a private cloud. You must also have 'admin' user role privileges in a RightScale account to register a cloud. Please contact your account manager for details.
Next, you will need to provide your CloudStack admin credentials in order to verify that you are the administrator of the private cloud.
Click Request Registration to submit your private cloud information for verification purposes. Upon successful registration, you will see the following message: "Cloud Registration succeeded. Cloud <CloudName> is now registered within RightScale."
Now that RightScale knows about your private cloud, the next step in the registration process is to register yourself as a non-Admin user. It's important that you register as a non-Admin user because if you used your Admin user credentials, you would see all of your cloud's resources, which would make it very difficult to decipher and manage the resources that are relevant for your own purposes. Obviously, if you're the only one using the private cloud's resources it's not going to be a problem, but you're most likely going to grant other trusted users access to use your private cloud's resources.
If you haven't already done so, you will need to create non-Admin user credentials for yourself at using the CloudStack management console. Provide the non-Admin user credentials.
If you have successfully registered your private cloud, it will appear under Settings -> Account -> Administered Clouds, as well as in the navigation menu of the Dashboard under Clouds.
Since you are the administrator who registered your private cloud with RightScale, you will see the private cloud's Cloud Token, which you can provide to other users so that they can add your private cloud to their RightScale account and use your cloud's resources. See Add a CloudStack to RightScale. As the cloud administrator, you will also be the only user to see the "Delete Cloud" action button.
Both of these items must be valid and active (green) in order to successfully launch instances in your private cloud.
Note the message (displayed in blue) in the screen above:
"Account successfully registered with cloud <CloudName>. It may take a few minutes to discover existing resources."
Examples of the types of cloud resources that are discovered are:
Again, it could take several minutes to discover all of your private cloud's resources. While the discovery process is still underway, you are free to navigate about in the Dashboard. However, it is possible to uncover some cloud resources before the process has finished. This could result in a transient state that is harmless, but potentially confusing. As an example, consider the following Subnets drop-down menu that was viewed during the discovery process:
One minute later, the actual Virtual Network names appeared in the Subnets drop-down.
