For those of you who tuned in to last night's live stream, I figured out the issue we were facing. It wasn't frozen, it was just slow. I haven't solved the slowness, but by increasing the timeout I was able to get it to complete the installation.
I've deleted the pool and recreated it with more robust settings and I am currently creating base images. Looks like we should be good to go.
On this week's stream: live migration and high availability!
Mostly hackers, mostly in Urbana, IL, talking to each other & our friends on like-minded servers without giving our personal data to the marketing machine.
