Aeolus 0.8.0 installation not working with Eucalyptus

Have not used this mailing list earlier, so hopefully my reply comes to the correct thread :-)

Aeolus 0.8.0 seems to be bundled with deltacloud 0.4.1, but I get lots of errors when I try to  connect to my eucalyptus installation directly with deltacloud by using the following command:

$ deltacloudd -i eucalyptus -p 8080 -P " ec2=;s3="

If I do a standalone deltacloud 0.4.1 installation and run the same command, then deltacloud can connect to my eucalyptus just fine.

Seems like the deltacloud version bundled with Aeolus is a little different than the one on http://
Or maybe the ruby version is different?

Once the Aeolus bundled deltacloud would be able to connect to eucalyptus with "eucalyptus" as driver, then soon hopefully someone can add eucalyptus to be one of the options in the Aeolus provider list :-)

Would be great to get this to work...

Hey guys,

Where does an admin set the "X-Deltacloud-Driver" field through Conductor?

Looking at Ilpo's recent message on the Fedora Cloud SIG mailing list, he's passing the "X-Deltacloud-Provider" field, but he may not be setting the "X-Deltacloud-Driver" one.

Not having set up Eucalyptus myself yet, I'm not sure what the correct approach is. :/

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
