Bug Description

Closely related to Bug #451607 (in part, the cause of).

Eucalyptus needs 169.254.169.254 to provide the metadata service (compatibility with Amazon EC2).

When configuring this address, we should label it appropriately, such that it doesn't conflict with eth0.

Should do the same for the pub and priv addresses also on the CLC.

This bug was fixed in the package eucalyptus - 1.6~bzr931-0ubuntu4

---------------
eucalyptus (1.6~bzr931-0ubuntu4) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Kees Cook ]
  * Fix unsafe /tmp file uses (LP: #445105):
    - tools/detach.pl: remove debugging XML dump call.
    - node/handlers_xen.c: use mkstemp().

  [ Mathias Gug ]
  * debian/eucalyptus-common.eucalyptus.upstart: Start eucalyptus-cloud
    with all the relevant options (LP: #452665).

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * cluster/handlers.c, net/vnetwork.c: label the 169.254.169.254 link
    local address with :metadata, the public vm ip addresses with :pub,
    and the private vm ip addresses with :priv, to separate it appropriately
    (LP: #452754)
  * debian/eucalyptus-ipaddr.conf: and now that we're separating the weird
    addresses to their own labels, we can show just the device label, much
    cleaner output, (LP: #451607)
  * debian/copyright: Eucalyptus licensed 1.6 under the GPLv3, update
    our copyright file accordingly, (LP: #453129)
  * debian/control, debian/eucalyptus-java-common.links: the CLC absolutely
    needs the ecj.jar installed and linked for euca-* and ec2-* API calls
    to work (LP: #453177)
