Initial setup

  • have a Fedora 19 Beta RC2 (virtual) machine owned by you, ISO image available at [2] or [3]
  • alternatively you can use prepared image available at [4]
Important.png
Packages needed
you need to have python-virtinst, libvirt, virt-manager and virt-viewer installed on your computer
  • follow these steps to set up Virtual Machine images
# mv anaconda-usability.img.tar.bz2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/
# cd /var/lib/libvirt/images
# wget http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/19-Beta-RC2/Fedora/x86_64/iso/Fedora-19-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso
# tar xjf anaconda-usability.img.tar.bz2
# chown qemu.qemu anaconda-usability*.img
# restorecon anaconda-usability*.img
# rm anaconda-usability.img.tar.bz2
# virt-install -n anaconda-usability -r 1024 --arch x86_64 --os-type linux --os-variant fedora18 --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability.img --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability-1.img --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability-2.img --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability-3.img --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability-4.img --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/anaconda-usability-5.img --cdrom ./Fedora-19-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso --serial pty --graphics spice

iSCSI target setup

  • prepare iSCSI volume on another VM (called here iscsi_target VM) which is reachable from VM where the installation will be performed
  • Alternatively, you can use prepared images that can be downloaded from [5]

Setting up iscsi_target virtual machine

Packages needed
you need to have python-virtinst, libvirt, virt-manager and virt-viewer installed on your computer
# mv anaconda-usability.img.tar.bz2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/
# cd /var/lib/libvirt/images
# tar xjf iscsi-target.img.tar.bz2
# chown qemu.qemu iscsi-target.img
# restorecon iscsi-target.img
# rm iscsi-target.img.tar.bz2
# virt-install -n iscsi-target -r 512 --arch x86_64 --import --os-type linux --os-variant fedora18 --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/iscsi-target.img --serial pty --graphics spice
  • root password is fedora
  • if you want to use serial console use this command: virsh --connect qemu:///system console anaconda-usability

On iscsi_target VM do

Important.png
Firewall settings
Ensure, port 3260 is available for incoming connection and there is no blocking firewall in the way between target and test machine.
Note.png
Note
If you use provided iSCSI-target image you can ommit all steps up to the next note.
IP address of iscsi_target is set to 192.168.100.100
  • install scsi-target-utils package and start tgtd service
   # yum install scsi-target-utils
  • create empty 4GB file
   # dd if=/dev/zero of=/root/iscsi-lun.img bs=1 count=0 seek=4G
  • add new iSCSI target, target ID 1 (tid=1)
   # tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid=1 --targetname iqn.2009-02.com.example:auth.chap
  • Add a new iSCSI logical unit with lun=1 to specific target with tid=1.
   # tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 1 --lun 1 -b /dev/loop0
  • Add the address to the access lists of the target, allow connection from all initiators
   # tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode target --tid 1 -I ALL
  • Setup new user consumer with password Longsw0rd
   # tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode account --user consumer --password Longsw0rd
  • Bind newly created user to iSCSI target with tid=1
   # tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode account --tid 1 --user consumer
Note.png
Note
If you use provided iSCSI-target image continue here.
  • attach iscsi-lun.img to /dev/loop0 and start tgtd
   # losetup /dev/loop0 /root/iscsi-lun.img
   # service tgtd start
Note.png
Note
If tgtd refuses to start, try to start it one more time.

Usability scenarios

Text mode installation (anaconda-text-1)

Setup

  • power on anaconda-usability Virtual Machine

Action

  • Install Fedora using text mode (append text on kernel command line)
  • Text mode installation will offer you possibility to continue installation remotely using VNC, please don't use it and continue in the text mode
  • In the installer add new user john with admin rights
  • Finish the installation and reboot

Create multiple Volume Groups (anaconda-lvm-1)

Important.png
Multiple hard drives required
You need a machine with 4 or more disks

Setup

  • power on anaconda-usability Virtual Machine

Action

  • Start Fedora 19 installation in graphical mode (default)
  • Use manual partitioning, choose LVM partitioning scheme
  • Create four volume groups, one volume group per disk drive
  • Create four mountpoints: /, /var, /tmp, /home and place each of them to separate volume group
  • Place swap partition to the same volume group as /
  • Finish the installation and reboot

iSCSI target is part of LVM Volume Group (anaconda-lvm-2)

Setup

  • have virtual machine (VM) with at least one disk ready
  • power on prepared iSCSI target virtual machine

Action

Install Fedora to VM using graphical user interface. In the installer:

  • find Installation Destination menu
  • search for iSCSI target and add it to the Advanced & Network disk section
  • use custom partitioning scheme, use LVM
  • Set up new LVM Volume Group that consists from at least one disk from Virtual Machine and at least one iSCSI target
  • boot installed system

LVM on top of RAID (anaconda-lvm-3)

Setup

  • have Virtual Machine with at least 2 disks ready

Action

Install Fedora to VM using graphical user interface. In the installer:

  • Use custom partitioning scheme
  • Use 2 disks and create RAID1 array
  • On the top of the RAID1 array use LVM,
  • create separate logical volumes for /, /home and swap
  • Finish the installation, reboot

CHAP authentication against iSCSI target (anaconda-iscsi-1)

Note.png
CHAP
Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) authenticates a user or network host to an authenticating entity
Note.png
iSCSI target
Internet Small Computer System Interface, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based storage networking standard for linking data storage facilities. An iSCSI target is often a dedicated network-connected hard disk storage device, but may also be a general-purpose computer

Setup

  • have virtual machine (VM) with at least one disk ready
  • power on prepared iSCSI target virtual machine

Action

Install Fedora to VM using graphical user interface. In the installer:

  • find Installation Destination menu
  • Search for iSCSI target and add it to the Advanced & Network disk section
Note.png
Note
If you use provided iscsi-target image, the IP address of iSCSI target is set to 192.168.100.100
Use CHAP authentication. Username/password is consumer/Longsw0rd. Please note, that you may have another network set up in your libvirt service, default is 192.168.122.0/24. If this is your case, change IP of the iSCSI system either to fixed IP in your network or to DHCP.
  • Select another non-iSCSI(local) disk
  • Continue with iSCSI disk + local disk selected
  • Place /boot on local disk, / on iSCSI target, do not use LVM
  • Finish the installation, reboot

Search for specific device (anaconda-storage-1)

Setup

  • have Virtual Machine with at least 6 disks ready

Action

Install Fedora to VM using graphical user interface. In the installer:

  • find Installation Destination menu
  • find and select sdf disk
  • use automatic partitioning and finish the installation
