Can't start bcfg2 server straight from deb package

Reported by: Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: README clients.xml. Cc:


Am trying to learn bcfg2 - so downloaded bcfg2 + bcfg2-server from PPA for karmic. Server refused to start without issuing error:

No Metadata Plugin loaded; failed to instantiate Core No Metadata Plugin exiting

Was unable to find any further debugging output. After running server with 'strace' found that '/var/lib/bcfg2/Metadata/clients.xml' was non-existant. That's my fault, as that is a required component.

However, the problem I have is that the error message returned from server was useless in debugging issue. Further, there was no README included with debian package to explain minimal setup required once the package was installed.

Please add more verbose output (the above was found while running server with '-vd'), please be specific with what the error that occurred, not just 'it didn't work'. And please add a README with minimal steps required. If nothing else you can have the README simply include a link to the QuickStart? pages on this wiki.
