Setup OpenSolaris 1002-127 PV DomU at Xen 3.4.2 & Libvirt 0.7.1-15 (2.6.31.6 pvops) on top of F12 per John Levon

Blog entry [1] was written by John Levon and supposed to help community users to install OSOL 2008-11 DomU at Xen 3.1 Dom0 on top of Fedora 8. It’s core technique utilizes virsh , so is supposed to be applicable to current release of Libvirt as well. However , /usr/bin/xenstore-read fails to obtain IP address for OSOL DomU via XenStore at Xen 3.4.2 Dom0. Posting bellow fixes this issue and provide an option to build via virsh the most recent OSOL PV DomU at Xen 3.4.2 Dom0 & Libvirt 0.7.1-15 on Fedora 12.
Create installation profile osol127-install.xml :-

At this point /usr/bin/xenstore-read fails to obtain IP address for DomU
as suggested in [1] for Fedora 8 ( Xen 3.1 Dom0) and we have to look how to read IP address from XenStore. Domain ID for OSOL in this particular case is equal 1 ( domid=`virsh domid OS127`) :-

# /usr/bin/xenstore-ls /local/domain/1/guest
vnc = ""
passwd = "jDQFrE2t"
port = "5900"
ipv4 = ""
default-link = "xnf0"
0 = ""
address = "192.168.1.41"
[root@fedora12sda ~]# /usr/bin/xenstore-ls /local/domain/1/guest/ipv4
default-link = "xnf0"
0 = ""
address = "192.168.1.41"
[root@fedora12sda ~]# /usr/bin/xenstore-ls /local/domain/1/guest/ipv4/0
address = "192.168.1.41"
# /usr/bin/xenstore-read /local/domain/1/guest/ipv4/0/address
192.168.1.41

Hence, script for VNC connection to OSOL 1002-127 DomU should look like:-

domid=`virsh domid OS127`
ip=`/usr/bin/xenstore-read /local/domain/$domid/guest/ipv4/0/address`
echo $ip
port=`/usr/bin/xenstore-read /local/domain/$domid/guest/vnc/port`
echo $port
/usr/bin/xenstore-read /local/domain/$domid/guest/vnc/passwd
vncviewer $ip:$port






Create runtime profile os127.xml for OSOL 1002-127 as follows :-

<domain type='xen' id='7'>
<name>OS127</name>
<uuid>df7eab17-4d15-2aff-cd62-d44c6093c00b</uuid>

Setup VNC via GDM configuration file at OSOL DomU

# vi /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf
# GDM Custom Configuration file.
# overrides: /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf
[daemon]
RemoteGreeter=/usr/lib/gdmgreeter

Restart services :-

# svcadm disable xvnc-inetd gdm
# svcadm enable xvnc-inetd gdm

Been started via virt-manager OSOL 127 DomU may be connected via vncviewer :-

# cat vnc_runtime.sh
domid=`virsh domid OS127`
ip=`/usr/bin/xenstore-read /local/domain/$domid/guest/ipv4/0/address`
echo $ip
vncviewer $ip:0
