Distributed SSL enabled Kaltura cluster, some sanity check issues, no video upload

Following up some issues here:

I manage to fix ( although awaiting some feedback to validate the solutions ).

When running the sanity check from one of the fronts, I gets these:

[Check kaltura-batch daemon status] [SKIPPED as kaltura-batch is not installed]
[Check kaltura-batch daemon init] [SKIPPED as kaltura-batch is not installed]

Which is interesting, since batch is indeed installed and running, although in another host, of course.

Which is interesting also as I can curl it perfectly:

But indeed, uploading content, aside from taking a long time, does NOT play and the spinning wheel is all we get:


Can someone shed some light here?

It looks like the playing error is due an incorrect hostname in the VOD host setting.

I changed it already everywhere, from ans file, and rerunning config scripts. Still tries the old one, however.

How does one force the change of VOD_PACKAGER_HOST ?

The preview of flavours work, I can view content at, for example:


But NOT when they load via the player, like:
