Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt virtio drivers for fedora 5

2017-12-31 Thread Anantha Raghava

Hello Sergey,

Your suggestion worked Instead of extending the disks, we added the 
third IDE disk with about 500 GB, created the required partitions, mount 
points and just synchronised the date from physical server to all these 
mount points using DD command. Post the completion of synchronization 
process, we modified the fstab and the VM went live.


Now all well.

Thanks for your suggestion and WISH YOU & THE LIST A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Maybe you can make this two disks larger, make more extended 
partitions on them and move partitions from disks 3 and 4 to this two 
and modify fstab accordingly?
Or if you don't need separate mount points you can extend space on / 
and move data to / filesystem tree and remove fstab entries,

and use only 1 virtual disk, if it's acceptable.
All this can be done from modern OS, you can connect all 4 disks via 
virtio drivers, connect 5th disk, move data to it, install fedora5 
bootloader,

modify fstab and than reattach to original vm via IDE.

Hi,
We have converted a very old fedora 5 server to run on oVirt. However, 
since the Fedora 5 does not have virtio drivers, or virtio-scsi 
drivers, the disks are connected to virtual IDE interface. The problem 
here is on a single IDE interface, we cannot connect more than 2 
disks. But the old converted server had 4 disks on 2 IDE controllers.
First question is can we add one more virtual IDE Controller to the 
VM? If yes, please share the procedure. Or whether any one can share 
the proper virtio or virtio scsi for fedora 5 OS drivers so that we 
can get other two inactive disks working.

Unfortunately we cannot upgrade from Fedora 5 at the moment.
Await your inputs.

You might manage to write a vdsm hook to do this, no idea how hard
this can be. See e.g.:

https://www.ovirt.org/develop/developer-guide/vdsm/hooks-catalogue/
https://www.ovirt.org/develop/developer-guide/vdsm/hook/vmdisk/

Latter adds a virtio disk, you might try to write something based on it.

You might try to use a newer kernel. It seems like Fedora 9 or 10 started
supporting virtio, so you can try their kernel.

No idea if it will work, and what might break. Try first on a test VM.

still it might look different to the OS.
