      Description

      I tested version 4.7.1 but i think it will effect every cloudstack version so far.

      You can't add a cloudstack-agent (on KVM) on Ubuntu when a CentOS cloudstack-agent is in the cluster. I understand that it's impossible to mix these two distibutions in a cluster because of different commands to each distribution.
      I would prefer a better error message in cloudstack. Because I had to set the cloudstack-agent log to debug mode, to find out that a mix of two distributions is not possible.
      Maybe cloudstack-management could fetch the debug message from the cloudstack-agent.log form the host and print this to the browser?
      Or the managemnt will check the distributions in cluster first, will check the distribution from the new host and will print out the error message like "You can't mix to different linux distributions in a cluster" ?
      I bet this would save a lot of time error debuging in the future for many users.

      with best regards
