 I have never tried, but I guess making a minimal linux image booting
 the thin client
 to the browser, which should be pointing to the user portal login

 good.


I know that downstream, with RHEV, we've got customers doing this - where Red 
Hat services helped build a kiosk image of RHEL for this purpose.

A number of thin client vendors do support spice.

 Hello,
 
 Can someone point me at a guide or explain to me the purpose of tags?
 I see
 that I can assign them to VMs and users, but don't grasp the purpose.

It's a way of grouping elements together.
Eg. tag all the product VMs / Hosts
Then filter by these tags to perform operations just on those.

From a license perspective you can only run OSX on apple hardware.
So for example you can run VMware Fusion, VirtualBox, Parallels, etc on MacOSX.
VMware does have experimental support for installing ESX on Apple hardware.

This hasn't (formally) been done for KVM.
There were some patches flying around a few years ago that tweaked the 
emulation to expose some Mac friendly devices including the systems management 
chip but these didn't go into mainline.

In theory it could be done - even on non-Apple hardware (license issues aside) 
especially with the newer device emulation (q35) that we have in modern qemu

I found this 
http://www.linux-kvm.org/wiki/images/2/2b/KvmForum2008$kdf2008_8.pdf there are 
probably newer versions out there, likely from Alexander.


 
  Any pointers?

Re: [Users] Horrid performance during disk I/O

 Subject: [Users] Horrid performance during disk I/O
 
 
 This probably more appropriate for the qemu users mailing list, but
 that list doesn’t get much traffic and most posts go unanswered…
 
 As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m migrating my environment from ESXi
 to oVirt AIO.
 
 Under ESXi I was pretty happy with the disk performance, and noticed
 very little difference from bare metal to HV.
 
 Under oVirt/QEMU/KVM, not so much….
 
 Running hdparm on the disk from the HV and from the guest yields the
 same number, about 180MB/sec (SATA III disks, 7200RPM).  The problem
 is, during disk activity, and it doesn’t matter if it’s Windows 7
 guests or Fedora 20 (both using virtio-scsi) the qemu-system-x86
 process starts consuming 100% of the hypervisor CPU.  Hypervisor is
 a Core i7 950 with 24GB of RAM.  There’s 2 Fedora 20 guests and 2
 Windows 7 guests.  Each configured with 4 GB of guaranteed RAM.
 

Did you compare virtio-block to virto-scsi, the former will likely outperform 
the latter.


 Load averages can go up over 40 during sustained disk IO.
  Performance obviously suffers greatly.
 
 I have tried all combinations of having the guests on EXT 4, BTRFS
 and using EXT 4 and BTRFS inside the guests, as well as direct LUN.
  Doesn’t make any difference.  Disk IO sends qemu-system-x86 to high
 CPU percentages.
 
 This can’t be normal, so I’m wondering what I’ve done wrong.  Is
 there some magic setting I’m missing?

 Subject: Re: [Users] about live snapshot and qemu-kvm

 Yes, but is the reason of different versions something you can share
 or not? Just to let the people understand..
 Perhaps something related to compatibilities to maintain with 6.0
 initial release due to policies red hat uses?
 I think duplicating the maintenance effort is negative for red hat
 too.. Or not?

There are a few packages in RHEL that we need to move more quickly that would 
be possible within the RHEL policies. OpenvSwitch and QEMU are two such 
packages.
The version of QEMU in RHEL started on 0.12 and has since had a large amount of 
backported features and bugfixes in many cases the backports were significant, 
perhaps more than should have been done.
We're getting to the point that in future versions of RHEL we're likely to 
carry a newer version of packages like QEMU in the layered products (such as 
RHEV and RHEL-OSP) so that we can keep the base versions in RHEL and more 
aggressively rebase in the layered products.

The qemu-kvm-rhev binary that's shipped in RHEV is built from the same source 
as qemu-kvm but with a different build option. If CentOS doesn't currently 
build that package it could easily be done or perhaps built by oVirt.

  Too bad QEMU doesn't support it. So it's still a long way.
 
 qemu/libvirt kind of supports it (at least in F19).
 
 In virt-manager you can define current and maximum memory
 allocation.
 
 The VM only sees the current allocation and you can hot add memory up
 to the maximum allocation.


It isn't really hot-plug.
This allows you to statically set the physical ram but then use the balloon 
device to borrow some ram from the guest.
If max memory was 4gb and we set current memory to 2gb the VM would still see 
4gb of physical memory but the balloon driver would be taking up 2gb of memory 
in the guest, this memory would be returned to the host for other VMs to use.

Re: [Users] virtio-rng / crypto inside vms

2013-12-13 Thread Andrew Cathrow
Entropy starvation isn't that common so for the vast majority of users it's not 
something that concerns them.
But obviously it's important enough that we invested in creating a 
paravirtualized solution.

RHEL 6.4 and 6.5 includes support within QEMU for virt-rng but not in libvirt.
RHEL 6.6 will pickup the appropriate libvirt support for virtio-rng and it is 
in RHEL 7 beta.
If I remember correctly it's in fedora 19 and later.
If you are compiling your own then you need a QEMU version 1.3 or later and 
libvirt 1.0.3 or later.

virt-rng is something we'd like to finish off in 3.4 it's effectively done 
already.
The challenge will be where it's supported - since EL6 hosts won't be able to 
use it unless we get creative.

If you're running on ovirt 3.2+ now with Fedora 19+ hosts then you can use a 
vdsm hook[1] to configure virt-rng for your guests.
The XML required to inject in the hook would be relatively simple[2]

On the topic of EL6 (before 6.6 comes out) then there is a way to work around 
this.
libvirt has a mechanism to pass through qemu command line options[3] . It's 
somewhere inbetween a great hack and a risky solution - but it's certainly 
helped up out many times. With this qemu namespace option in libvirt you could 
easily make it work in a custom hook on EL6.

  http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1750.txt
  suggests about 128 bits of entropy

  various other sources mention ranges
  between 100-200 or even at least 4096
  entropy bits.
  
  Would it be a workaround to add a virtual

  (But it would be useless if you have no real sound hardware I
  guess).
  
  Additional when you want to regenerate host keys in e.g. Ubuntu
  3 Keys get generated so you need even more entropy to be on the
  save side.
  
  If you got any links to best practices or some
  good news regarding the state of virtio-rng that would be awesome.
  
  Currently my vms have around 130-160 entropy bits available.

You could pin each VM to a host, but this isn't a great solution. 
Alternatively you could write a scheduler plugin that does this based on tags.

 Yes, I meant two separate items - the VFD plus the ISO, just as is
 done
 with RHEV today. Somehow that never got pushed to the Community.
 Rather
 than duplicate work, somebody might want to simply push that code
 upstream, assuming that's not a problem with RedHat.

It's just a matter of packaging. The virtio drivers are all pushed on to the 
fedora site and the spice driver onto spice-space.org.
And the tools installers etc are on the ftp site @ 
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhev-m/3.x/src-zips/

 
 Also note that since the Quick Start Guide is written to assume these
 items are pre-populated, that should be considered a bug today.
 Either
 the QSG should be updated to remove this note until the functionality
 is
 actually present, or we can simply add the func to match the doc
 (which
 would be less work in the long run) :)
 
 As requested, I have opened a (separate) bug/rfe to track this:
 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1028489
 I am not sure they need to be separate bugs, but I started it this
 way
 and somebody can lump this in and close this as a dup if they like.

In the QuickStart Guide, it implies that you should find a
virtual
 
floppy image for virtio-win in the ISO_DOMAIN. Or at least I
can
find no
 
information on where to find/populate that image before the
Guide shows
 
its use.
 
   
 
However, in my default 3.3 installation, there was nothing
pre-populated
 
in my ISO_DOMAIN. Should there have been?
 
   
 
Regards,
 
Bob
 
   
 
   
 
I've never seen that happen on any of my installs.
 
   
 
You can grab the drivers at
 
http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/virtio-win/latest/images/
 
  
 
   Anyone would like to step in for packaging virtio-win so we can
   add
   it to
 
   ovirt repository?
 
   So we can add it as dependency and have ISO_DOMAIN populated.
 
  
 
  
 

  I can take it, if alonbl doesn't mind me asking him a few questions
  about packaging :)
 

  Bug 1026930 - Package virtio-win and put it in ovirt repositories
  (I'll do this)
 
  Bug 1026933 - pre-populate ISO domain with virtio-win ISO (depends
  on
  1026930, need someone to take)
 

 This is great!

 Should we also consider pre-populating the Guest Additions, such as
 the SPICE optimized driver?

Might need to have different manifest in the virtual floppy that the VFD based 
on the size limitations
eg. just enough (virtio-blk,net) in VFD but all in ISO.

 I upgraded to 3.3 and tried to start a console.

 Whatever version of console I set, VNC or Spice, the browser

 Am I doing something wrong or is this just the unreleased version ?

 Subject: [Users] Can I delay boot of VM so to interact with grub?
 
 Hello,
 in VMware I can choose two things that sometimes are useful
 
 1) boot directly in bios
 I choose this when I want to attach an iso image to the VM
 In oVirt probably could be obtained with run once and attach cd.
 But in general it could be interesting this opportunity
 
 2) choose a delay in boot
 This way I can use the VM console befaore OS starts and if needed I
 can interact with boot loader
 (grub in Linux VM for example).
 
 When I open a spice console I'm not able to get usability before os
 already in start after grub.

use run once to start a VM and in boot options pick start paused 


 
 I see to options:
 - create  a delay in boot as in VMware
 - give spice console the -w (for wait) option that already existed
 in virt-viewer and not in remote-viewer so that one can spawn a
 console window before the VM ha already been started.
 
 What do you think?
 Is there anything already in place to jump into a vm before grub
 completes (other than setting a long delay in grub itself)?
 
 Thanks

Re: [Users] scsi disks inside VMs?

 Subject: [Users] scsi disks inside VMs?

 Hello.
 I'm wondering if it is possible to create VMs with ovirt that have
 scsi disks?
 I've just installed ovirt 3.2.1 on Fedora 18 and attached an ovirt
 node (the current fedora 18 based version).

 When adding disks to a VM I can chose from the 'IDE' or 'VirtIO'
 interfaces. I'd like a scsi option also.
 Mainly because when migrating from vsphere VMs this makes things
 simpler.
 Also, my current kickstart installer for various OSes does not yet
 handle 'vd' disks.
 To add to things I need to install a custom filesystem on the vms
 that wants a scsi disk. It does a scsi inquiry early on in the
 install phase and will not work in 'vd' disks. ie: ' sg_inq
 /dev/vda' does not work.

 I also know that the libata driver in recent linux distributions
 exposes IDE drives as scsi and allows a scsi enquiry to succeed.
 Unfortunately the use case I have required Enterprise Linux 5 and in
 this release IDE disks report as 'hd', whereas scsi disks report as
 'sd'. So, I can just use an IDE disk to get around this problem.

 I understand that virt-manager will allow attaching scsi disks to KVM
 based virtual machines, and that this is made possible by recent
 changes in libvirt.

 I think we should be encouraging people to use the virtio disks where
 possible, but in cases where this is not straightforward ovirt - and
 RHEV - are missing a trick as far as allowing people that have
 existing vsphere setups to fairly easily move to ovirt.

 Is a 'scsi' interface' option for adding virtual disks for VMs on the
 roadmap? If not, could it be considered?


There are plans to add support for virtio-scsi - still paravirtualized but 
providing a pv scsi controller that gives us more features - such as passing 
scsi commands to luns, allowing more disks per vm etc.


 Thanks.

 Subject: [Users] USB dongle (sigh...)
 
 Hi,
 
 A user of mine is trying to ruin oVirt's reputation by asking me how
 will I handle the USB dongle issue.
 I found nothing like USB passthrough drivers, and I don't intend to
 use
 such a bad solution.
 Is there anyone here who faced such a request?
 I saw http://www.dongleservice.com/ and
 http://www.digi.com/products/usb/anywhereusb, but I was wondering if
 anything lighter would exist (based on some dd
 if=/dev/goodOldLinuxTrickWeLove things...)

a gongle is an active device, not a passivce storage device so that won't work.

You'll need to use usb redirection into the guest.
Two ways of doing that - you can configure native USB support with spice and 
pass through the dongle from your machine to the VM or you can use a hook[1] to 
pass the dongle from the host itself to the VM


[1] http://wiki.ovirt.org/VDSM-Hooks/hostusb
 
 The VM is a XP or 2003, and I already tried dd /dev/myUsbDevice
 of=dongle.iso, then mount it in the VM with daemon tool. The iso is
 mounting, but the content does not appear. Anyway, I'm not sure at
 all
 this will be enough emulation to convince the doubtful software
 *this*
 is its dongle.

Use the engine-config utility to change the value for SpiceReleaseCursorKeys 
the default is shift+f12 but it can be easily modified.

Re: [Users] .img file for win2008 controller driver?

2013-01-16 Thread Andrew Cathrow
if you're using virtio for a Windows VM then you'll need virtio drivers, since 
these aren't included in the Windows install image. 

If you've got a rhel or rhev entitlement then these are on RHN, otherwise you 
can download drivers from the fedora project [1]. These are signed but not 
WHQL'd certified but should install fine. 
it looks like there's not a VFD there now just an ISO, not quite sure why I'll 
ask the maintainer - you might need to hotplug the CD during install or copy 
them into a VFD.

Re: [Users] mozilla-xpi for Ubuntu

Ideally this should be included in the core distro.
It's worth adding your input to the request in launchpad [1] to help the distro 
maintainers prioritize it.

Jason created a PPA that's reference in the bug that I'm sure still works.

Is it the only host in the DC, if that's the case you can't put it to

Yes you are right there is a known issue with the mac address length in IB

the length and add the appropriate validation.

 Hi All,
 
 Live snapshots is support from qemu 1.1. However, qemu 1.1 is not
 included in Fedora 17 or Ovirt-node.
 
 Besides the Virt-preview repo, when is qemu 1.1 expected?
 Effectively,
 there is still no live snapshot support in Ovirt 3.1

The oVirt 3.1 management platform supports live snapshots if you have a qemu 
release that does.

Fedora doesn't update it's qemu mid-release - so you have 3 choices
- use the virt-preview repo
- wait for F18
- compile your own.

 Hi,

 Thanks for the input. I have taken down my instance and my work is
 going to buy a server to build it on.

 Anywa, have to say it is a fantastic piece of software and look
 forward to using it.

Great to hear, looking forward to your feedback.

   Many thanks on your prompt response.
 

   I am using the one instance on AWS - ami is available.
 

   The setup consits of fed 16 and the latest stable of ovirt.

  So the host you're trying to add is on Amazon - in which case it's

  KVM virtualization (since it's just a VM on Xen)
 

   Hope this helps it is 3 o'clock here in scotland so am going to

   for some shut eye.
 

   Will follow this up soon.

 I have an environment where I would like to be able to provide users
 with a single web interface from which they would be able to open a
 console on either a virtual machine or on a physical machine. Playing
 with a clean install of oVirt 3.1 suggests that oVirt is not capable
 of doing this.

No. oVirt's focus is virtual machines so the user portal only lets you open up 
consoles on VMs managed by oVirt engine.

When you say physical machines - would they be Linux or could they be Windows?
I might have an idea ..


 
 Has anyone successfully configured oVirt to provide this capability,
 or know of a system that could integrate with oVirt to meet that
 requirement?

 Subject: Re: [Users] What are you looking for from oVirt?

 Hello,

 I don't run currently any oVirt deployement in production but I have
 a lab.
 I used to run in production the old oVirt product (in rails).

 My best wishes for the future release of oVirt are :
 * GluserFS support as many of us
 * Nova (OpenStack Hypervisor) driver support (
 http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/selecting-a-hypervisor.html
 ).
 I choose oVirt because my first goal is to manage a virtualized
 datacenter with OSS. But we begin to look at private cloud
 deployement.
 I think Aeolus would work with oVirt virtualization backend but AFAIK
 it only support redhat based linux which is not possible for us as
 we run

 Aelous has a RHEVM/oVirt driver that works today.
 If there are problems getting Aeolus working with oVirt we should dig
 into it, there shouldn't be any issues.

 almost only debian server except for virtualisation layer. So we
 would like to deploy OpenStack but to rely on oVirt for KVM
 hypervisors.

 Out of interest what are you getting from OpenStack that you don't
 get from oVirt

 * Fully supported stateless ovirt-node

 Romain

What do you like about it? and what would you like to see

whether that is in terms of technical, process, or marketing
changes?
   
  
 
I'm here to help, but to do so I need your help first!
   
  
 

   Thank you to all those who have replied, on and off list, so far.
   For
   those of you who sent me private messages, I'll be (anonymously)
   collating your feedback and forwarding it on.
  
 

   The range of users who have replied so far includes:
  
 
   * Sysadmin at small web hosting business
  
 
   * Cost-sensitive IT department of an unrelated industry
  
 

  That would be me.
 

   * Hosting provider specialising in HA
  
 
   * Running a private cloud
  
 
   * Test lab set-up considering for production deployment
  
 

  Well no one should be crazy enough to go live with a product they
  haven't at least ran inside a testing lab.
 

   And the top features you've cited are:
  
 
   * Stateless hypervisor
  
 
   * Ability to migrate VMs
  
 

  Number one reason I am working with oVirt
 

   * RHEL and KVM
  
 

  We are a debian based org so changing over to the RHEL based OS's
  is
  more a pain then a benefit. KVM is still kinda young compared to
  both Xen / Vmware it seems to work well but there aren't as many
  os's covered by the vitro drivers and there seem to be more bugs /
  race conditions but that has been steadily changing as it has been
  getting more mature
 

   * Cost
  
 
   * The ability to have your preferred OS as both hypervisor and
   guest
   as a first class citizen
  
 
   * Aimed for data center use-case rather than cloud
  
 

  This would be number 2 in the list.
 

   And the top gaps you've identified so far:
  
 
   * Insufficient resources (docs) to help with production
   deployment
   on
   ovirt.org
  
 
   * Difficulty of configuration and getting started
  
 
   * You'd like to see a more diverse contributor community
  
 
   * Stability (unfortunately, I don't have any concrete examples of
   this from the commenter)
  
 
   * History on resource usage in hypervisors and guests
  
 
   * Integration with Gluster
  
 
   * Offer choices of guest agents with other distributions than
   RHEL
  
 

  I could have created this list myself. I have hit pretty much every
  one of these limits in the last few months working with the
  project.
  3.1 adds limited support for Gluster and ovirt seems to be more
  stable dispute F17 instability.
 

  As for the question of stability the file storage system in 3.0 can
  be a bit unstable. If your NFS share disappears for a few mins the
  file system tends to go offline and wont reactivate. Not sure about
  iscsi or FC since I don't have access to those file systems.
 

   This is all giving me great insight into who's here - please keep
   it
   coming!
  
 

   Cheers,
  
 
   Dave.

   Hi,
   
 Is there a way to directly add an LDAP server to ovirt?
 Currently
 I
   run engine-manage-domains with -domain=domain-name. This finds

   I
   want?
   I have the fqdn of the ldap server.
   
   Regards

  Hi Sharad,
  Currently - no such way.
  Bare in mind you need to provide also the user ID.
  In addition - it may be that not all DS providers hold information
  on
  the users in the same way, and we perform some normalization in
  order
  to
  store them at DB in the same format.
  However, I guess we can run this Guid encoding code at
  engine-manage-domains, and then, it will be possible to add the
  user
  (if
  you provide the baseDN FQDN) to the system.
  Feel free to suggest a patch ;)
  In addition, an idea that popped to my head - let's say you want to
  add
  100 users this way - will you provide for every one of them the
  baseDN?
  Maybe we should be able to configure a fefault base DN per domain?
  
 Hey,
 
 We do have an entry in vdc_options called LdapServers.
 It is a per-domain configuration, just like the other LDAP related
 configuration options.
 When looking for LDAP servers, the engine uses the ones in this
 configuration. If empty, it goes to the DNS.
 Currently the engine-manage-domains utility doesn't set this option,
 but if you would like to work with one LDAP server for testing
 purposes, or as a workaround, then you can set it manually:
 domain:1ldapserver1, domain2:ldapserver2

Would that mean that we can skip all the DNS SRV records?

 
 Note that it only supports one LDAP server per domain.

To help make sure all the use cases are scoped it'd be interesting to hear

 Hi,
 after being able to start my first guest I noticed two things:
 1) When I started the guest with the run once option the console
 button
 didn't become available. Navigating to another section of the GUI and
 back
 didn't help. I was only able to make is available by closing the
 browser
 tab and then going to the admin portal again from scratch.

there was an issue with the spice-xpi that was fixed in F17, I'd have to check 
to see if that made it to F16.
What OS are you on and what version of spice-xpi ?

 
 2) When my guest froze (due to nested virtualization experimentation
 that
 apparently doesn't work yet) I had no (obvious) way to kill the vm.
 Hitting
 the stop button apparently only sends a shutdown command but I
 couldn't
 find any way to issue a destroy command.

Shutdown requires guest agent. If you right click on the VM you can do a stop - 
which forces it down.

 After killing the qemu process on the host manually the guest in the
 portal
 gui apparently went into an unknown ? state which isn't surprising
 but
 now there seems to be no way to get rid of the vm.
 
 What is proper way to get rid of such a misbehaving guest?

  Subject: [Users] Guest life-cycle
 
  Hi,
  after being able to start my first guest I noticed two things:
  1) When I started the guest with the run once option the console
  button
  didn't become available. Navigating to another section of the GUI
  and
  back
  didn't help. I was only able to make is available by closing the
  browser
  tab and then going to the admin portal again from scratch.
  
  there was an issue with the spice-xpi that was fixed in F17, I'd
  have to check to see if that made it to F16.
  What OS are you on and what version of spice-xpi ?
 
 The client is on F15 with spice-xpi-2.7-1. Should this affect the
 icon in
 the gui though? I thought spice would only come into play once I
 actually
 click that button and start the console.

It is an xpi issue. There's communication between the portal and the XPI 
regarding if a console is active. There was a bug in the older release of the 
XPI that meant that the status wasn't refreshed.

 
 
  2) When my guest froze (due to nested virtualization
  experimentation
  that
  apparently doesn't work yet) I had no (obvious) way to kill the
  vm.
  Hitting
  the stop button apparently only sends a shutdown command but I
  couldn't
  find any way to issue a destroy command.
  
  Shutdown requires guest agent. If you right click on the VM you can
  do a stop - which forces it down.
 
 This only seems to be available as long as the VM is still running.
 Now
 that it is in an unknown state that menu option is grayed out as is
 the
 remove option. How can I clean this up?
 
 Regards,
   Dennis

 real glusterfs integration, quantum integration, and better API.

GlusterFS and Quantum are certainly in the works, but in a separate thread I'd

Would you be able to post some initial comments on that?

 I have 2 deployments I am working on with two different companies.
 
 The first is two clusters (SJC and NYC) each with 20 boxes PXEBooted
 to
 a backend NetApp. All guests are Linux (Centos, RHEL, and Fedora).
 One of
 the unique things with the clusters is they use read only linux and
 NFS
 root.
 
 The 2nd is still in design stage, but is starting out with 3 clusters
 (East / West US and Europe) each with 20 boxes. Each server is based
 on
 white label Xeon E5-2687W, 128GB RAM, 10GBase-T, and 12 SATA disks on
 a
 hardware RAID 6 controller. This is also going to use shared NFS read
 only
 root with PXEBoot from NetApps.
 
 I have been running GlusterFS on and off for 5 years and are looking
 at
 running GlusterFS on all the raw 300TB RAID6 in each server. Each
 server
 will be a brick, two servers with distribute for redundancy, 10
 distribute pairs then will be unified. I have been trying to use this
 for
 raw image store for years, but its just not ready, so we will use
 NetApp
 for that, however GlusterFS will be very handy for tier 2 bulk
 storage.
 
  GlusterFS and Quantum are certainly in the works, but in a separate
  thread I'd love to hear feedback on the API what the
  issues/enhancements are.
  Would you be able to post some initial comments on that?
 
 APIs are great today on the backend, we are looking at the ability to
 modify the front end so we can tie it into our portal allowing users
 to
 manage their VMs seamless with the other services we offer.

So are you looking to extend the power user portal or something more?

You could hack it using a vdsm hook but other than that no.

 Subject: [Users] Windows install / activation issues.
 
 I am slowly doing my stage two testing now.  I have been finding very
 few issues that is pretty good since 3.1 is just going into feature
 freeze but I did find one that is kinda a show stopper and weird for
 me.  I installed windows 2003 using my Dell CD on my Dell Hardware.
  On
 both ESXi and Xen Server windows authorization fine because the
 installer sees the Dell bias in some way but under oVirt it doesn't.
  From my research it looks like the feature is called SLP.  Is there
 anyway to pass the Dell SLP info to the installer like it is done
 under
 both Xen and Vmware ESXi?  I assume it would be a libVirt option of
 some
 kind I just can't find it.

Some specific SMBIOS strings are being passed to identify the hypervisor.
There isn't a feature that enabled passing select host bios strings in oVirt 
yet (patches welcome) but you can do this with a hook, see here

 I don't need SLA or support. I don't need RedHat.

You say that you don't need an SLA for software, only for your mailing list 
questions?

 
 Production is what I expect from a software that is developed for
 performance load balancing, high-avaliability, failover, etc.
 
 To me it seems natural, as I use to do with all Linux software, we
 use
 in production: Sendmail, Named Bind, 389 Directory Server, Mysql,
 Dovecot and so on. They are all on Scientific Linux or CentOS. Is
 this
 so strange?
 
 But finally, nobody answered my question:
 
  Do you plan to officially release oVirt for RedHat and
  derivates?

We do want to package oVirt 3.1 for EL6 however it comes behind fedora in terms 
of priority but it's something we certainly want to make happen.
There's extra work to do in addition to compiling and packaging oVirt, for 
example we need JBoss AS7 packaged in RPMs for EL6.

If this is important to you then the best way of making it happen quicker is to 
contribute, it was great to see dreyou filling this gap, that's the way open 
source projects work.

 
 Thank you again.

  Dael Maselli.

  I need something in which I can reasonably trust along years,
  something like what happens for 389 Directory Server for

  oVirt instead is officially released only for Fedora, that has
  very
  short upgrade cycle, and I can't imagine to upgrade my production
  servers every 6 months.
  Production grade and very long lifecycles - sounds like you need to
  look at the downstream product of oVirt - RHEV
 
  I hope, and I think many will agree, that you will consider to add
  RedHat and derivates to the list of supported OS.
 
  Thank you very much.

 Given 'Steal Time' was introduced in RHEL 6.3? How long until same
 feature set will be in oVirt Nodes? Or is it already integrated?

Would we implement it in the node, or would this be something that we'd report 
in the guest agent and pass back through vdsm to the engine.

   I would like to request Wake on LAN support be added to the Power
   Management interface. It seems like a good fall back for anyone
   who
   doesn't have proper power management capabilities.
  
  Fencing needs to reboot a node, WOL would only wake it up if it was
  suspended.

 But it could issue the reboot command via SSH no?

No. Fencing is used when the node is not responsive, if we could ssh into it 
then it's unlikely we'd be fencing it.
When a node isn't responsive we need a mechanism to reset it but also confirm 
that it's been dealt with, so using IPMI (which is in nearly all servers 
today, even whitebox), iLO, DRAC, IMM, etc allows us to connect to the 
management controller reboot it and confirm that it's been reset.

Other approaches we can take involve extending our use of sanlock.


 I was also interested in WOL and curious as to why it wasn't in there
 already. WOL allows the system to go into standby for power
 management (less desirable than Off, but standby could return to

actually more desirable than off in many cases - for example in the cluster 
policy we could put a node into powersaving mode and more quickly resurrect it 
when required.
That's been on the list for a long time - just needs patches .

 service faster). For poweroff, the shutdown command could be passed
 via SSH, but the system would have to prompt that manual booting
 would be required. Unless the system supports boot on WOL request.

We need a stable machine type to ensure migration, you can have different 
qemu-kvm versions on different hosts but as long as they support the same 
stable machine type they will have compatibility for migration.
The setting which you set in database (but see patch below to make it a config 
option) allows you to specify the required machine type.
Fedora uses machine types like pc-0.15 pc-0.14 pc-1.0 where as RHEL users 
different machine types.

 Hello,
 
 I need to make rhev-agent work mainly on centos 5. For centos 6 it's
 easy, because we can directly find SRPMS on redhat ftp.
 So I tried many ways to build it on my own:
 
 
 1. git clone git://gerrit.ovirt.org/ovirt-guest-agent and
 ./autogen.sh. It claims Autoconf version 2.63 or higher is
 required but rhel 5 autoconf version is 2.59
 2. rpm -bb ovirt-guest-agent.spec.The issue is that I'm running
 i386 instead of an expected i686. If I change this required
 value in the SPEC file by doing ExclusiveArch: i686 x86_64 i386
 , it complains then : Group field must be present in the
 package: ovirt-guest-agent-pam-module.
 
 
 I'm stuck in any ways, It's a pity that rhel5x is the most used rhel
 system...

This came up on IRC earlier today. We realized that the SRPM for this package 
was on RHN but not on the FTP site, so we fixed it

 Subject: [Users] New to oVirt, I've got a couple of questions.
 
 
 
 
 Hi Folks,
 
 
 I've got oVirt 3.0 installed on a Fedora 16 machine, and I'm planning
 my data center. Great process, by the way, very straight forward.
 I'll have two host machines (on order) which I'll likely load with
 the oVirt image. These two hosts each will have a large amount of
 RAID 5 local storage. Here's my questions..
 
 
 Storage: If I'm using this local storage on each host, will I be able
 to migrate VM's from host A to host B if needed, or does storage
 need to be shared. I guess another way of asking the question is,
 what's the best way for me to set this up? :)

You'll need shared storage - NFS, iSCSI or Fiber channel. In the future they'll 
be other options such as native Gluster, but for now you'll need something like 
NFS.
 
 
 Networking: When I set up a logical network, how is that accessed
 from the physical network? For example, if my physical network is
 192.168.1.0, and my logical network is 155.223.44.0, how will I
 connect to port 80 on a virtual machine with the IP 155.223.44.5
 from IP 192.168.1.10. Is there port forwarding? I didn't see mention
 of it in the guide.
 
 
 Thanks very much!

   I'm trying to get virtual windows and specific software
   on
   it working.
   Windows is working fine but i'm getting blue screen when
   trying
   to
   start this particular application (which works fine in
   vmware).
   I figureout that there could be some kind of problem with
   memory.
  
  what makes you think it's memory?
 
 
   a hunch ?

It's not ballooning - it's not configured. It's unlikely to be
memory
related. What's the application?
   
   
  Yes, I just realized that ballooning is not configured (during
  windows ballooning driver installation).
   
  Mentioned application is a software for switching voip calls.
  There
  is a bunch of helper appliactions (which are working fine),
  problem
  is with main application server/deamon. It is develop
  internaly
   by company I work for.
   
  We use this applications on many physical and wirtual servers
  (including kvm and xen on different hosting providers) and
  never
  see
  such behave as on ovirt.
  
  oVirt is using KVM under the covers.
 
 Yes, I'm aware of that. It's the reason I choose ovirt.
 
  What version of KVM have you tried it on and how is it configured
  (eg. libvirt xml or qemu command line)
 
I can't say. We use hosted environment with web panel
only (elastichosts.com)
 
I will try to start the same machine on different host with

 Virtualization hosts must have at least 10 GB of RAM. A minimum of
 an additional 1 GB for each
 virtual machine is also recommended.
 
 Not the first complaint, maybe we should update those numbers.  E.g.
 I 'only' have 8 GB of RAM in my hosts and works perfectly, I even
 run other jobs on my hosts.
 You need some hundred megabyte for the host OS plus the ram for your
 VMs.

  Just checking to be sure that the Installation Guide doesn't have a

  minimum, before even placing a VM onto it? (Page 8, Section

problem
is with main application server/deamon. It is develop internaly by

We use this applications on many physical and wirtual servers

oVirt is using KVM under the covers.
What version of KVM have you tried it on and how is it configured (eg. libvirt

 Hi
 
 
 For the last few weeks I have been tried to test Ovirt - but am
 failing due to spice not working...
 
 
 I have created a bugzilla ticket about my spice issues
 
 
 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=805552
 
 
 At the minute spice just doesn't work for me - I have tried from
 multiple desktops - (1 FC16 1 opensuse 12.1) - both have the same
 spice versions (spice-xpi, etc).
 

Odd that spice is listening on port 65535
Can you check what port it's really listening on

On the hypervisor run  vdsClient -s 0 list  | grep displayPort


 
 All I want to do really is see Ovirt working, can I use VNC or is
 that a WIP?
 
 
 If I select VNC in Ovirt how do I connect (the spice icon is greyed
 out)
 
 
 Or (preferred) can anyone help me with spice?

 have created a VM from an existing template (using http POST) and
 been trying to find a way to set the VMs ip address
 with no success. I tried supplying the ip address in the guest_info

 guest_info

That's a read only property that shows the IP address of the virtual machine

There's discussion going on about how we pass a payload to a VM that can handle 
things like in-guest configuration

http://www.ovirt.org/wiki/Features/VMPayload

 
 But the created VM ends up with the same ip address as that in the
 template.
 
 Anyone attempted to do something similar ? Is there another way of
 doing it. I tried the nics API but there seem to be no interface
 to modify a nic's ip address.
 
 Thank you.

 On 03/03/2012 11:52 AM, xrx wrote:
  Hello,
  
  I was worried about the high availability approach taken by
  RHEV/oVirt.
  I had read the thread titled Some thoughts on enhancing High
  Availability in oVirt but couldn't help but feel that oVirt is
  missing
  basic HA while it's developers are considering adding (and in my
  opinion
  unneeded) complexity with service monitoring.
 
 Service monitoring is a highly desirable feature, but for the most
 part
 (today) people achieve it by running service monitoring in a layered
 fashion.
 
 For example, running the RHEL HA cluster stack on top of VMs on RHEV
 (or
 Fedora Clustering on top of oVirt VMs)
 
 So we could certainly skip providing service HA as an integral
 feature
 of oVirt and continue to leverage the Pacemaker style service HA as a
 layered option instead.
 
 In the past I've gotten the impression that tighter integration and a
 single UI/API for managing both VM and service HA was desirable.
 
  It all comes down to fencing. Picture this: 3 HP hypervisors
  running
  RHEV/oVirt with iLO fencing. Say hypervisor A runs 10 VMs, all of
  which
  are set to be highly available. Now suppose that hypervisor A has a
  power failure or an iLO failure (I've seen it happen more than once
  with
  a batch of HP DL380 G6s). Because RHEV would not be able to fence
  the
  hypervisor as it's iLO is unresponsive; those 10 HA VMs that were
  halted
  are NOT moved to other hypervisors automatically.
  
  I suggest that oVirt concentrates on having support for multiple
  fencing
  devices as a development priority. SCSI persistent reservation
  based
  fencing would be an ideal secondary, if not primary, fencing
  device; it
  would be easy to set up for users as SANs generally support it and
  is
  proven to work well, as seen on Red Hat clusters.
 
 Completely agree here.  The Pacemaker/rgmanager cluster stacks
 already
 support an arbitrary number of fence devices per host, to provide
 support for both redundant power supplies and also for redundant
 fencing
 devices.  In order to provide resilient service HA, fixing this would
 be
 a prerequisite anyhow.  I've cc'd Andrew Beekhof from the
 Pacemaker/stonith_ng, since I think it might be useful to model the
 fencing for oVirt similarly to how Pacemaker/stonith_ng does it.
 Perhaps there's even some code that could be reused for this as well.
 
 As for SCSI III PR based fencing... the trouble here has been that
 the
 fence_scsi script provided in fence-agents is Perl based, and we were
 hesitant to drag Perl into the list of required things on oVirt Node
 (and in general)
 
 on the other hand, fence-scsi might not be the right level of
 granularity for oVirt based SCSI III PR based fencing anyhow.
  Perhaps
 better would be to just have vdsm directly call sg_persist commands
 directly.
 
 I've cc'd Ryan O'Hara who wrote fence_scsi and knows a fair bit about
 SCSI III PR.  If oVirt is interested in pursuing this, perhaps he can
 be
 of assistance.

There's also sanlock which plays a role here. In the past we required some form 
of fencing action but once sanlock is integrated that provides another path.

 
  I have brought up this point about fencing being a single point of
  failure in RHEV with a Red Hat employee (Mark Wagner) during the
  RHEV
  virtual event; but he said that it is not. I don't see how it
  isn't; one
  single loose iLO cable and the VMs are stuck until there is manual
  intervention.
 
 Agreed.  This is something that should be easily fixed in order to
 provide greater HA.
 
 That being said, I still think more tightly integrated service HA is
 a
 good idea as well.

 Hi
 
 I have been trying for hours to install a vm in Ovirt and having no
 joy., Spice is not working - I just get a black popup window
 
 I am connecting from a Fedora16 desktop - I have spice-XPI installed.
 can see 'press Shift+f12' to release mouse etc.
 
 My setup :-
 
 I have a 3 server setup
 - 1. Ovirt engine (Lan address + external address)
 - 2. Storage node - NFS server (LAN address and external address)
 - 3. Ovirt node (from the node .iso) - only LAN address
 
 The Engine server is a default FC16 install. the node is from the
 ovirt node .iso.
 
 I don't think its firewall related - I tried disabling firewalls on
 all servers.
 
 Once I try spice the icon is greyed out afterwards.
 
 In IRC it was suggested to run Bind from server 1 - I have done that
 and added DNS entrys in the LAN range for all 3 servers - all 3
 servers are using bind from server1 as their only nameserver in
 resolv.conf
 
 I am trying to connect from my Fedora16 Desktop
 
 When I try to connect I see in /var/log/messages
 
 Mar 1 19:34:43 fedora16 spice: Warning: failed to connect: Connection
 timed out (110)
 
 Any ideas how to investigate this further.
 
 I am dying to test out a VM but with no spice I am presently unable
 to...
 
 Any ideas will be welcomed - i'm 1/2 thinking about re-installing
 with all external ips (but that will make transfer speeds slower..)

 So I have been looking at how to move windows 2008 and R2 servers

 clonezilla. But windows needs a sysprep and generalize not to

 then use clonezilla to put the image onto a thinprovisioned drive on
 ovirt. It starts to boot then blue screen of death. Am I missing
 something other than syspreping the windows machine and uninstalling

 Subject: [Users] Trying to understand oVirt terminology.
 
 While reading oVirt Wiki and other related docs, I came across
 multiple
 terms that meant the same  thing (at least to me). Please take a look
 and let me know where I am wrong.
 

 1) Difference between RHEV and oVirt node - oVirt node has VDSM and
 libvirt whereas RHEV only has libvirt.
 

For terminology and architecture oVirt == RHEV.
RHEV is a downstream product offering of oVirt.
Later we'd expect to see other downstream offerings based off oVirt.

RHEV users VDSM (which uses libvirt) in the same way that oVirt uses VDSM.


 2) 'RHEV-M server' is same as 'oVirt Engine Mgmt Server' is same as
 'oVirt Engine'.

Yes

 
 3)  'oVirt API' is same as 'REST API' is same as 'RHEV-M API'  which
 is
 same as 'oVirt Engine API'.
 

Yes.

 4) 'Host Agent' is same as VDSM

Yes

 
 5) 'oVirt Node API' is same as VDSM API.

Yes.
 
 Question ) Guest Agent is running on VM. How does it get installed
 there?
 

for RHEL guests it's part of the RHEL distribution (shipped on RHN for RHEL56) 
for other distros it's packaged in other ways.
eg. we have the guest agent for Fedora packaged in our nightly builds.

 I have tried the admin username/password, but that did not work. How
 do I
 access virsh on the nodes directly?

Ideally you'd not, you'd use vdsClient.
You can use --readonly if you're happy with read only

We really want to make sure that only vdsm is talking to libvirt otherwise we 
can get ourselves into trouble.

If you *really* need to connect with libvirt have a look in this directory on 
the node /etc/pki/vdsm/keys/

 I need to start ovirt-engine, so I need more then -r.

So ovirt-engine is a VM on the node?

 Understand.

 Thanks, I found that same password via google, but I can't find the
 username. I have tried a bunch I thought it might by, but get
 authentication failed with everything I have tried.

iirc it's vdsm@rhevh

 Subject: [Users] Questions about Ovirt flexibility
 
 Hello,
 I have in my server lab several machines:
 
 - with debian or ubuntu
 - without virtualization extensions.
 
 So I ask:
 
 - is the ovirt agent (not the manager) installable on
 debian/ubuntu/gentoo?

Not yet but community work in progress (patches welcome!)

 - is the agent compatible with rhev?
RHEV isn't compatible with oVirt, in the same way that Fedora packages don't 
work on RHEL

 - can ovirt manager use rhev agent?
Versions are different so you'll need to use oVirt agent instead.

 - can ovirt use servers without virtualization extensions but with
 QEMU
 installed?

No we explicitly require KVM.

 
 
 Thanks in advance for any reply!
 
 
 Mario

  As Fedora the default system that Ovirt is packaged for does this

  There is always RHEV if you want longer support...
 
 Right, I think the first question we should be asking here is...
 
 Morgan, what do you mean specifically by support?
 
 Since it's an upstream project, typically each new release would
 obviate
 the previous one, and new features would only go into the latest
 version.
 
 One valid question is whether or not bugfixes will only go into the
 latest version, or if the immediate prior version will get updates.
 (For example, bugfixes are backported to Fedora 15 even though Fedora
 16
 is out)
 
 Also, the term support from an upstream perspective is much different
 than from a product perspective.

 So on a follow up question: Is any consideration being given to RHEL
 as far as compatibility? Will Ovirt features be held back if adding
 them would be impossible to do with RHEL? Like a feature requiring a
 major update to a RHEL package? Or is it up to the RHEV developers
 to sort it all out for their needs? It won't be long before Fedora
 outpaces RHEL on version levels, depending on the time frame for
 RHEL 7. RHEL 5 had a very long life span and was quite dated by the
 time RHEL 6 shipped.

What does held back mean? 
That's like asking if Fedora will be held back because of RHEL.
Upstream is upstream - it's where new features are developed sometimes they can 
be backported, other times it's not possible and means waiting for a major 
release.
