I write the new provisioning module for the KVM support.
Basically, what I am doing is that, installed kvm in one of our blade and
host OS is Fedora 11, kernel linux 126.96.36.199-64 bits. So you can use command
"qemu-system-x86_64" to run your virtual machine.
1. Assuming your host machine has two Ethernet cards, eth0 is private
network and eth1 is public network. You have to configure your host
machine's network and setup bridges for each virtual machine.
The configure procedure is following:
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth1 up
vconfig add eth0 0
vconfig add eth1 5
brctl addbr br0
brctl addbr br1
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br1 eth1
ifconfig br0 yourPrivateIP/netmask up
ifconfig br1 yourPublicIP/netmask up
route add default gw yourDefaultGatewayIP br1
modprobe kvm-intel (for intel CPU)
Finally, you have to copy the Management Node's public to the KVM host's
authorized key repository, so vcld can login to the KVM host by key
Now your host machine should be ready for receiving request from VCL.
2. After configuring the KVM host machine, now you have change several
things on the Management Node.
Two files you have to add to your vcl provisioning directory, one is mac and
the other is kvm.pm.
mac is simple script to generate random mac address. My mac is following:
echo -n $(echo -n 00:0C:29:C3; for i in `seq 1 2`;
do echo -n `echo ":$RANDOM$RANDOM" | cut -n -c -3` ;done)
<8/23/11 Andy Kurth - removed code from description. It has been attached to this issue as a file.>
At last, add the kvm module into your vcl database, table "module" and
"provisioning". Assign virtual machines to the kvm provisioning module. Now
you can make a reservation to test KVM support.
If you have any problems, please feel free to contact me.
