These are my (bdwheele) brainstorming notes for the VM image...I'm still testing this.

VM Configuration

  • Using VirtualBox:
    • 1 Core
    • 3G RAM
    • 500G System Disk (VMDK, Dynamically Allocated)
    • Set network to "Attached to Bridged Adapter"

Base OS Install

  • Centos 6.4 x86-64
  • English language and keyboard
  • hostname: localhost.localdomain (the default)
    • if it is localhost it should set it to the dhcp hostname provided.
  • eth0:
    • Clear "Device MAC address"
    • Connect automatically
    • IPv4 Settings
      • Automatic (DHCP)
      • DHCP client ID: avalon-vm

  • set timezone to america/indiana/indianapolis, clock uses utc
  • root password is 'changeme'
  • partitioning:
    • custom layout
      • /dev/sda1:  500M ext4 mounted as /boot
      • /dev/sda2:  (remainder of disk) Physical volume
      • Volume Group:  vg_avalon
        • PVs: /dev/sda2
        • LV lv_swap 2G
        • LV lv_root (remainder of disk) ext4 mounted as /
  • Desktop install
  • Reboot / Firstboot
    • Leave all of the defaults, except...
    • Do Not create a new user
  • Log in as root
    • do not check "do not show me this again" to the "you are running as root" dialog.  Just close it.
    • yum update
    • open these ports in the firewall:
      • tcp/22
      • tcp/80
      • tcp/1935
      • tcp/18080
  • OPTIONAL:
    • shut down the VM
    • at this point the vm is at "baseOS" and can be used as a cloning point

Avalon Install

  • OPTIONAL:
    • clone the baseOS image as puppet-YYYYMMDD
  • https://github.com/avalonmediasystem/avalon-installer
    • after step 9, set up the default password for the avalondrop account:

      export FACTER_avalon_dropbox_password=changeme
    • stop after running the puppet script (do not log into Avalon)

 

Demo Content

    • TBD

 

VM Image Prep

    • Install avalon-vm-1.0-1.noarch.rpm to install the firstboot changes and tools
    • run /usr/share/avalon/dist-prep
    • history -c
    • shutdown VM
    • Export Appliance
      • Use a 0.9 version and a MANIFEST for compatibility
    • copy the .ova file to the distribution point
