Remove caching

Using package caches to create the helper image is dangerous now that
snf-image-helper is automatically retrieved.

5197de03 11/28/2012 02:27 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Add apt preferences dir for multistrap

The files hosted in this directory will be added in the
/etc/apt/preferences.d directory of the helper image before multistrap

53a5929f 10/05/2012 10:18 am Nikos Skalkotos

Use a seperated dir for update-helper cache files

Xen support

Support launching helper domain on top of Xen hypervisor under PV mode.

Helper VM becomes hypervisor aware by passing hypervisor=$HYPERVISOR
in the kernel command line and thus acts accordingly (which logging
devices to use, what disk/floppy devices to expect, etc)...

621a9a34 09/27/2012 07:34 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Replace debootstrap with multistrap

multistrap is more flexible allows as to define more that one
repository to retrieve packages from.

3707aa73 09/13/2012 05:25 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Add new config_url os parameter

This url points to a json file that contains the value for other
OS parameters. Using this file we can pass parameters to snf-image
without writting them in Ganeti's This is
useful, for 2 reasons:
  • Privacy: We don't want the password to appear in the Ganeti config...

Create a dedicated host monitoring program

This program is used to output info and error messages from the host.

8847e13c 07/23/2012 12:19 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Add for monitoring stderr

This programm will get the stderr file as input and it will create a
json image-error msg

f32664b2 07/16/2012 11:51 am Nikos Skalkotos

Add program

This program transforms raw helper monitor messages into json strings
under very strict rules. This reduces security concerns since the
helper VM output cannot be trusted.

ebba4508 05/23/2012 02:27 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Add mechanism for monitoring snf-image events

Add a utility initially written by vkoukis for monitoring the image
copy. This utility outputs notifications to a named pipe. An external
program can get informed for the image deployment progress by reading
the notifications from this named pipe. The monitoring mechanism...

8689d50f 05/17/2012 03:31 pm Nikos Skalkotos

Add mechanism for using a custom unattend.xml

snf-image-helper by default uses it's own version of unattend.xml file,
but if UNATTEND variable is specified then it will use the one provided
by snf-image-host.

b1fef76e 05/11/2012 11:33 am Nikos Skalkotos

Remove the progress-monitor-support flag

snf-image-host will make use the external progress monitor program
if the PROGRESS_MONITOR variable is not empty. This way progress
monitor can be enable or disabled by just overwriting the aforementioned
variable in the defaults file.
