I'm trying to realize an Ubuntu Enterprise Infrastructure using virtualBox creating all VMs. After I followed this tutorials:

without have issues. When use the following guides:

my environments.yaml's file is:

    type: maas
    maas-server: ''
    maas-oauth: '***ssh_key***'
    admin-secret: 'nothing'
    default-series: 'precise'

but when I run

sudo juju bootstrap

receive this error

2012-06-29 23:55:33,568 INFO Bootstrapping environment 'vb-maas' (origin: distro type: maas)...
Unexpected Error interacting with provider: 409 CONFLICT
2012-06-29 23:55:34,475 ERROR Unexpected Error interacting with provider: 409 CONFLICT

why? someone will help me? thanks a lot

It means that the maas server has no nodes to allocate to juju, this has been changed to a more useful error message in more recent version of the juju in precise.

when I open the maas server web interface I see my nodes added. I also selected Wake On LAN and clicked on Accept & Commission for each one. thanks for the link – Riccardo Magrini Jul 2 '12 at 14:10
I also checked that on its web interface for each node there is this note: "You can boot this node using Avahi enabled boot media or an adequately configured dhcp server, see for details." – Riccardo Magrini Jul 2 '12 at 14:57
