Pinned topic Can I export Virtual Images from SCAS?

‏2013-09-25T03:07:57Z |

We are currently testing VSP portability using SCAS.  Although we are aware that VSP can be exported through deployer cli, we also want to download associated virtual image.

Below is the procedure we have done.
1. Create Service Instance (SCAS SMALL) on SCE.

2. Login to service Instance

3. "Catalog" -> "Virtual Images" -> "Export"

4. Enter Information of a internet connected scp server with credentials and then OK.

However when we download the Image we get the error below. ( this is from trace.log)

[2013-09-24 04:44:40:320 EDT] 00001039 RXA E com.ibm.tivoli.remoteaccess.SSHProtocol beginSessionImpl [XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX] CTGRI0000E Could not establish a connection to the target machine with the authorization credentials that were provided.
 

I have double checked that the credentials are correct.
Looking at the link below, it gives me information that I have to provided the correct "key store name"(which I am not aware where to change)

CTGRI0000E:

To summarize, my question is ...

Is there a way to download virtual images from SCAS ?

    Hi,

    We are investigating on it.

    Hi,

    It is a known defect.
    You can refer to the following work around to proceed ahead,
    The only thing that SCAWS can export is the metadata from the image, not the actual image.


    To export an image to the SCAWS deployed VM or SCAWS instance or to download the metadata for a virtual system, you should do the following:
     
     1.  In SCAWS go to the Catalog / Virtual Images and select the image you want to download
     2.  Note the "Image Reference Number" (that's the RAM asset ID number)
     3.  In SCE go to the Image Catalog (RAM)
     4.  Use the Advanced Search for the Image ID you got in Step 2 above
     5.  Download the image (note that you will only get the metadata, as that's all that SCE/RAM allows).
