I took CentOS-6.3-x86_64-minimal.iso and created centos stemcell
with help of the stemcell tool followed by below site:

Finally uploaded centos stemcell to vpshere micro bosh instance.It's successfully uploaded and i able to to see the output.
"bosh stemcells" command.

bosh stemcells

| bosh-stemcell | 0.6.7 | sc-d21bff0b-a26f-4fae-8ee6-c8d1c5819f6d |

Stemcells total: 2


Already i have one release that one is working with application deployment on ubuntu.

Now what i did edited manifest file relative to this and executed "bosh deploy",then i am getting below error.

I am using this below as manifest file for deployment.

centos-deploy1.yml file.

name: centos-deploy1

Note: In resource pool section i changed stemcell attributes,Then please see below as result.

For centos:

name: bosh-centos-stemcell
version: 1.5.0.pre2

result: It's not working.

For ubuntu:

name: bosh-stemcell
version: 0.6.7

result: It's working perfectly

Note: Can you please check once and tell me what needs to be done for fixing this above error.

CentOS is currently not supported for BOSH stemcells, specifically in the bosh_agent codebase. If a 3rd party is building stemcells for BOSH, I'd suggest contacting them about issues you're having with their stemcells.

We are working on CentOS. We are going to keep issues open that reflect future work.

Update: Martin has been working on #274


FYI my centos stemcell builder hack (I've just made it work, not polished it or made it work alongside ubuntu) is here:
