What to test?
Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization improvements in Fedora 17. There is a large list of virtualization improvements coming in Fedora. To simplify things, testing will be divided up into a number of sections.
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

What's needed to test
- A fully updated Fedora 17 Beta machine. See instructions below.
- Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see How_to_debug_Virtualization_problems#Is_My_Guest_Using_KVM.3F Is My Guest Using KVM?). If unavailable, you can still help with testing QEMU support.
- At least one guest image installed before the test day (suggested reading - Virtualization_Quick_Start)
- Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
Areas to test
Below are the some of the virt features accepted for F17 which should each have test notes documented:
Other important / general test plans to follow include:
— libguestfs, image inspection, virt tools, V2V, P2V (you will need at least one guest to test this)
- GuestOS compatibility
— test installation of as many different guest operating system as as possible. (You will need a KVM bare metal host & lots of disk space)
