This test case will test the PXE boot on guest.If you have a PXE boot server available, testing gPXE is pretty straightforward:

How to test

  1. Make sure the guest can access the network which the PXE server is on, e.g. by configuring a bridge.
  2. Define a guest which which will PXE boot from that network:
$> cat > netboot.xml <<EOF
<domain type='kvm'>
<type arch='x86_64' machine='pc'>hvm</type>
<boot dev='network'/>
<interface type='bridge'>
<source bridge='br0'/>
<model type='virtio'/>
<graphics type='vnc'/>

Start and test the defined guest:

$> virsh define netboot.xml
$> virsh start netboot
$> virt-viewer netboot

Expected Results

  1. Confirm that the guest has obtained a DHCP address and download the appropriate files via TFTP
  2. No errors during booting
