[Users] use of VM payload to set static IP info - ovirt 3.1

2012-11-14 Thread Messaoud Benantar
Hello folks,
  in our case we do need to assign static IP information to 
the KVM VMs that we provision.
In looking at RHEV 3.1 i see a new Rest function for sending a payload to 
a VM.

vm
   ...
 payloads
 payload type='cdrom'
 file name='my.txt'
contentsome content/content
 /file
 /payload
 /payloads
  /vm


I was wondering if anyone knows how to use VM payload to set static IP 
information for a VM (both linux and windows).
Thank you.

[Users] Rest API for vmanager 3.0 (set VM ip address)

2012-03-13 Thread Messaoud Benantar
Hi everyone,
   i am using the vmanager's 3.0 Rest API.
 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 
element during VM creation as in:
  guest_info
ips
ip address=x.x.x.x/
/ips
/guest_info

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.

Andrew -
  Unfortunately in our case we assign ip-addresses from a static 
pool.
So i understand the VMPayload feature will include setting up gues_info 
ip-address, right?
Sorry that i have not read any info regarding this functionality -- when 
will it be available? Thanks.

Not today, the guest would usually just pickup from DHCP
But that's the purpose of the VMPayload feature that's being discussed - a 
way to pass arbitrary data/config to the VM

 Andrew -- thanks for the reply.
 Since guest_info of a vm is not modifiable, is there a way to set
 a VM's IP address.
 This seems like a really needed functionality when provisioning VMs
 through the Rest API.

 That's a read only property that shows the IP address of the virtual
 machine reported by the in-guest agent.
 
 There's discussion going on about how we pass a payload to a VM that
 can handle things like in-guest configuration
