#21519 Migrate Xen PV (LVM) -> KVM (LVM)

Posted by stardot on 16 December 2015 - 04:30 PM

Here's the high level steps I took to migrate :


To migrate from Xen -> KVM with Solus :

1. create new vps with KVM with exact disk / ram (maybe 1gb above because space is not always exact)
2. shut down new vps
3. lvsnapshot existing LVM (not necessary if you can shut it down)
4. dd existing XEN LVM -> KVM LVM (you need to dd to the KVM LVM's main disk partition, not disk + swap)
5. e2fsck + resize2fs new KVM LVM to correct size differences
6. boot new KVM vps with liveCD (I used CentOS 7 x64 minimal install cd) & boot into troubleshooting
7. chroot the disk
8. modify /etc/fstab /etc/mtab and /boot/grub/grub.conf to change xvda disk label to vda
9. grub-install & run grub to setup the new disk , this installs the boot MBR
10. halt , remove mounted CD, boot off disk, no other changes needed

Note : you need to move IP addresses in Solus to the new KVM. The new VPS will boot up with the old VPS ip addresses set, so the old vps should be turned off to avoid IP conflict.

#21517 Migrate Xen PV (LVM) -> KVM (LVM)

Posted by stardot on 12 December 2015 - 04:08 PM



I've been trying for the past few weeks to migrate my Xen PV servers which use LVM for storage to my newly installed and integrated Solus KVM servers, which also use LVM.


There is a lot of (sparse) documentation out there for various guides and strategies which mainly focus on ensuring that disk labels, grub configs and console labels and whatnot get changed when you migrate. This type of thing makes sense and I never had problems doing it.


The problems I've encountered is simply when I dd the Xen LVM -> KVM LVM, the disk doesnt boot. The KVM Bios sees no disks whatsoever. I'm kind of at a loss because I'm not even getting to the point where the kernel wont boot or find the partitions because of configuration disk labelling issues and whatnot.


I'm not sure what I'm missing and I wanted to avoid rsyncing the filesystem from Xen -> KVM, as I'd prefer the cleanest method possible. Once I figure out the best method to do this I will script and automate the entire process with a shell or python script (which I would be fine sharing here as well).


Any ideas why a Xen PV LVM image wont boot on KVM with a straight DD copy?

#21029 Delete a OpenVz Template file tar.gz

Posted by dhaivatnaik on 12 March 2015 - 01:02 AM

I have solusvm admin access. I want to delete few templates that i have created. By templates i mean the actuall template file stored on the server "templatename.tar.gz"


I donot see any option to delete those. Also how to connect to SSH or FTP of the SolusVM server. If somehow i can connect to the server FTP or SSH i can find the file and delete.


Please guide me with this issue.

#21016 LXC support

Posted by mike503 on 08 March 2015 - 05:04 AM

I've been using LXC for a variety of things lately, and it seems much cleaner and integrated with the kernel than OpenVZ. Out of the box OpenVZ has way too many tunable options. LXC is simpler and provides a more modern approach to long-running containers (to me it feels like the evolution of OpenVZ)


It is pretty close to the same commands as well to start, stop, destroy, etc... would be awesome if SolusVM could deal with LXC-based containers the way it does with OpenVZ ones.

#21610 Solusvm-slave: non-interactive installation

Posted by bip on 03 May 2016 - 02:56 PM

To automate deployment of slave servers, would be useful add non-interactive installation.
I found an old request, but at the time, this issue has not received proper attention and support: https://forum.solusv...?hl=interactive
I think it will be very useful and convenient.
./install --release stable --nodeos RHEL --osversion 6 --svmtype 4no ...etc
and no questions in cli.

You can use natting for this.  Routing all the traffic from public to private internal inside on VM.

#18346 How to create a Private Internal Network

Posted by Brian on 04 February 2013 - 04:40 AM

From the output that you have provided, you do not have a virtual setup to use that bridge. Have you setup the network settings with the correct bridge in SolusVM Master? This can be found by going to Nodes > List Nodes > Click on the node name > Internal IP Addresses. This is where you define the bridge device. If you have these filled out, can you provided the output of the virtual config file that you are trying to assign this bridge too? This file can be found in /etc/libvirt/qemu/. The file will have kvmxxx.xml. xxx is the number of the virtual.

#18303 How to create a Private Internal Network

Posted by Hannan on 28 January 2013 - 04:43 PM

Have you attached intbr0 to any physical devices? The only device that should be attached to any bridge is eth0. What is the output of brctl show.

How can I attach it to eth0? eth0 already attached to br0.

anyway I used "brctl addbr intbr0" and it seems it's not giving the error anymore:

[root@kvm2 network-scripts]# service network restart
Shutting down interface br0: [ OK ]
Shutting down interface eth0: [ OK ]
Shutting down interface intbr0: [ OK ]
Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ]
Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface eth0: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface intbr0: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface br0: [ OK ]

after that I've rebooted the VPS for few times, but it is not seeing any new network card :(

and ifconfig shows:

virbr0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 52:54:00:7C:D7:93
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
