 in this file, if the last work with 'exit 0',please add this command sh /etc/init.d/]

4.check the OS file system format,the file system is LVM format as below:

5.and check the partition in this file system,there are 3 partitions:xvda1/xvda2/xvda5, and the partition ID is B3/5/Be.system can not recognize this partition ID since it is not continue ID on xvda1 and fusion cloud system can not detect this partition.

Fusion cloud system can not recognize the LVM format file system.


1. re-install the OS with startdard format(esx2 or esx3)

2. convert the command format to sh.---only for ubuntu OS.
