Bug Description

Binary package hint: netcfg

When installing a Eucalyptus node controller using the karmic server CD with the cloud seed, an Ethernet bridge device should be created automatically. Having a bridge device is a requirement of running a Eucalyptus node controller; you systematically have to create one when installing eucalyptus-nc. Seeing that we are trying to make the installation of UEC as smooth as possible, it would make sense to have the bridge device created at installation time.

It may require to have a dialog to prompt for which device to be member of the bridge, or jut assume the default network device to be the only member.

Fixing this would assume, of coure, that we also fix #364724.

While I agree that we should do this, I suspect the code would fit
better in eucalyptus-udeb than in netcfg. There are already enough hooks
to achieve this, I think, and this would save on having to make a change
to a core d-i package that we could probably never merge back to Debian.

Any thoughts on the network that should be used? Presumably it should be in RFC1918-space? Do we need to ask the administrator for network parameters?

Based on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Eucalyptus%2Bbridge I think I'll assume that DHCP will work. If it won't, somebody should shout to let me know.

I think dhcp is fine.

eucalyptus (1.6~bzr672-0ubuntu4) karmic; urgency=low

  * Configure a bridge interface when installing a node controller
    (LP: #424541).
  * Don't remove /etc/eucalyptus/installer-cc.conf after registering the
    cluster controller with a local cloud; we may need it later.
