Problem launching cloud instance

Clare Sloggett
Hi all,

I wasn't sure whether to send this to galaxy-dev or galaxy-user. I'm
having a problem launching a Galaxy instance on Amazon. I have done
this in the past with no problems. I suspect I'm doing something
trivial wrong but can't work out what!

The problem is that after starting the instance, when I go to
http://public-dns-url/cloud and the "Initial Cluster Configuration"
window pops up, the initial storage size text box is disabled. That
is, the text box after the first radio box ("Galaxy Cluster") is
greyed out. So, I can't enter a size for the storage and if I just
proceed without doing so, it (I think) causes CloudMan to fail.

I thought I was probably just having browser issues but I get the same
problem repeatedly in Chrome and Firefox. When I inspect the element,
I see <input disabled="true" ... name="g_pss"...> so I think it really
is disabled. This seems like a weird problem so I suspect it's me, but
I can't work it out. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Clare

Re: Problem launching cloud instance

Clare Sloggett
Update - I think I can see the problem, and I think it's a bug in the
image on Amazon. I might have misunderstood, but thought I would point
this out as a possible cause, assuming others experience the same
issue I do.

Looking at the repository at
https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/cloudman/src/65f0ff532a29/templates/index.mako
I can see <input disabled='true' style="margin-left:20px" type="text"
name="g_pss" class="LV_field" id="g_pss" value="" size="3">GB<span
id="g_pss_vtag">...

It looks like the input is being set to disabled in all cases instead
of just when (as the comments suggest) the underlying machine image
doesn't support it?

It does look like this is a recent change - I think the culprit is
commit https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/cloudman/changeset/65f0ff532a29#chg-templates/index.mako

The thing I don't understand though is that I thought the image I was
launching was older than this change. I launched
861460482541/galaxy-cloudman-2011-03-22 , and another older image
seems to have the same problem . Do the instances draw on a
configuration script which is newer than the image? Or maybe the cause
is not what I've suggested!

Any suggestions for quick workarounds to get an instance running
successfully would also very much appreciated as I was planning to use
a CloudMan instance to demo both Galaxy and CloudMan tomorrow to some
people interested in using them (in about 11 hours from now in fact).
Could I maybe log in to the CloudMan back end and configure it from
there?

Thanks,
Clare

Clare;
Enis will be able to better answer the questions about fixing this long
term, but here is a quick workaround to get it running immediately: ssh to the
image and edit '/mnt/cm/templates/index.mako' to remove "disabled='true'"
from this line:

https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/cloudman/src/b017694e2cfa/templates/index.mako#cl-384

Then if you refresh the http://your-dns/cloud page you'll be able to
enter into this box. From there everything was working fine for me.

Sorry about the problem and thanks for bringing this up,
Brad

Re: Problem launching cloud instance

Enis Afgan
Hi Clare, 
Sorry about the trouble. I just disabled that if statement in the template so the option should no longer be disabled for any new cluster. My goal was to simplify usage but I'll obviously have to revisit the implementation...

Sorry for the trouble and good luck with the demo tomorrow. Let me know if you run in to any other issues as an update to CloudMan was released just a couple of days ago.

Wow, thanks for the fast response Brad & Enis!
