The July 26, 2011 minor release of the RightScale platform introduces new features for migrating your RightScale-managed Cloud.com CloudStack Version 2.1 private clouds to CloudStack Version 2.2.
When you upgrade a RightScale-managed private cloud to use CloudStack 2.2, you must also migrate RightScale objects associated with that cloud by following the steps outlined here. This is required for the RightScale Dashboard and API to locate and reference these objects due to differences in the way that CloudStack 2.1 and 2.2 track key objects such as security groups and server IP addresses,
Important! Because the RightScale Dashboard and API are unable to communicate with your Cloud.com CloudStack 2.2 private cloud and cannot perform administration, monitoring, or update activities for that cloud until you perform the migration, you should follow these steps immediately after upgrading your Cloud.com CloudStack version. To migrate cloud objects, you must be logged into the Dashboard as a user with "admin" permissions for the RightScale account that was originally used to register your private cloud with RightScale, as described in Register a CloudStack Cloud with RightScale. This RightScale Dashboard account is also called the cloud administrator account.
Follow these steps to complete your CloudStack migration via the RightScale Dashboard:
Note: If errors during the migration or finalization processes prevent you from completing the above steps for any of your private-cloud resources, contact RightScale Support (Support -> Email) for assistance.
After the above steps have been performed for each RightScale Dashboard account referencing an upgraded Cloud.com CloudStack private cloud, all normal RightScale activity processing will resume for that cloud. This includes array autoscaling, alerts, and maintenance activities.
