If Cloudmin needs a sponsor, I am sure that I could easily talk to my boss. I can’t say for sure we would need something for all 6000 of our hosts. We would be happy to provide development boxes on site as well for your to run CI against the latest builds and I would be happy to try to facilitate it. My Problem is I come from more of a SysOps, with strong emphasis in dabbling in coding. So I can’t make quick progress on the code side necessarily on the actual module unless its C++/Python or PHP.
I do suggest that you take a look at the uploaded script so that if anyone else does install it on solaris it pulls the right packages. I only purchased the Cloudmin license because it states it supports Solaris Zones, while not LX Zones or Bhyve, I know that the module itself, if I could get to the source, I may be able to get it to work with Bhyve. That would make you competitive to TrueNAS in regards to appliances/plugins that you can install on the OS.
The ability to use native ZFS (even though Ubuntu has recently ported it as well) and the ability to run Bhyve is a tool we won’t give up, it is simply too powerful and works wonderfully performance wise as hypervisor when we are trying to packer more servers per host.
The OmniOS community is fairly active and have a regular release cycle.
I appreciate you updating the documentation so that people don’t buy the Cloudmin pro license think they will get support for Solaris Zones which is advertised:
Also the login portal has the scripts and code
I apologize for any hostility. I was just under the impression the thing I bought which was advertised under the Pro licensing was supported by the company I bought it from and that no one here care because it’s a OS they(the forum members) know nothing about.
Even on Solaris the URLs are incorrect in the Installer, so maybe the people who own and manage the code can update it for others.
