I am trying to enroll my nodes in my MaaS cluster. I am doing this by booting them from the 12.04 installation CD, and choosing the MAAS installation option.
I'm only trying to set up one node right now. When i do the enrollment process, the node shutsdown, and I see 0 nodes on the MAAS homepage of my master node.
I tried adding the node from the MAAS web gui, when I do this, I get an error on the page that says:
Unable to create Node: Unknown problem encountered with the Cobbler server.
In the cobbler.log is the following:
Tue May 8 20:43:47 2012 - DEBUG | REMOTE maas authorization result: True; user(?)

It seems like there is a chicken and egg game being played between dnsmasq's DNS server, and the cobbler's hostname database -- this is just a guess on my part.
Here is the contents of dnsmasq.leases: the MAC addr of node1 is 00:03:47:22:1c:e2
dbuttric@sid:/var/lib/misc$ more dnsmasq.leases 1336531172 00:03:47:22:1c:e2 192.168.5.119 * * 1336530695 00:90:27:32:3b:53 192.168.5.148 node3 * 1336530676 00:90:27:18:f2:0b 192.168.5.242 node2 *
How can I delete hostnames from cobbler, and retry my node adding activities?
Here is more: I can successfully register a node and the MAAS server shows that it has 1 node registered in it.
5 minutes later, I go back to the MAAS web gui, and it reports 0 nodes. I have not looked at error logs yet, but what can cause this to happen?
Should I just try re-installing the master node?
