Hi all

I have set up a two machine "cloud". One machine hosting the Cloud
Controller, and the second is running the Node Controller. After a few
struggles I apparently have both machines configured however my single
NC doesn't appear in my availability zones and I am unable to deploy
any instances. Initially I had some troubles adding the node when the
process tried to scp the keys to the node. However I manually scp them
to the machine and subsequent attempts to register the node appeared
successful. In addition the node is listed in the eucalyptus.conf

My physical setup includes to machines :
node1.nodes.campbell.local( => Cloud Controller/Frontend
node2.nodes.campbell.local( => Node Controller

Both machines are running the fresh install of UEC from the Ubuntu
9.10 Server iso.

AVAILABILITYZONE        |- c1.xlarge    0000 / 0000   4   2048    20

I would appreciate any insight or clue as to where to proceed from
here in order to have the node recognized.
