== What's needed to test ==
 
+
* A fully updated Fedora 18 Beta machine.
For starters, your physical machine should have:
+
* 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.

As for getting the latest virt packages, you have a few options:
+
== Areas to test ==
  
=== Fedora 18 on a physical machine ===
+
=== News tests and features ===
  
The preferred testing platform is a fully updated Fedora 18 machine. You have a few options for getting the Fedora 18 bits:
+
FIXME: test cases coming soon
  
* Install with CD/DVD.
+
=== Previous test cases ===
** Latest live CD builds ('desktop' is the default): http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/
 
** Latest 64 Bit DVD: http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/18-Beta-TC6/Fedora/x86_64/iso/
 
  
* Upgrade from Fedora 17
+
Some test cases used in previous test days. Still useful to test for regressions!
** The supported way is using CD/DVD upgrade. See media links above
 
** Update using 'yum': https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum  <br>This method is not supported, but is very commonly used by developers. If you're a power user this is a possible option!
 
  
=== Fedora 18 virt packages on Fedora 17 ===
+
==== General Virt ====
  
If you aren't ready to make the jump to Fedora 18, this is the next best thing! Run latest virt packages on Fedora 17 from the virt-preview repo:
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization URL Guest Install]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization CDROM Guest Install]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Virt Manager Lifecycle]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Guest pxeBoot]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Live Migration using libvirt/virsh]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Offline (paused) Migration using libvirt/virsh]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization PV EOI]]
  
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Virtualization_Preview_Repository
+
==== Spice ====
  
=== Run Fedora 18 in a VM with nested virtualization ===
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Check SPICE password support]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Manually set spice listening port with TLS port set]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Setting up a VM with Spice]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Spice listen on all public network interfaces]]
  
Do you have a new machine with a ton of ram and storage space, running Fedora 17? Nested virt might be an option!
+
==== libvirt ====
This allows you to create KVM guests _inside_ a Fedora 18 VM.
 
  
# Install the latest virt packages from virt-preview using the instructions above.
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization libvirt create a logical pool]]
# Install a Fedora 18 guest using one of the test cases below.
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization libvirt save and restore with svirt]]
# Use virt-manager to 'copy host CPU' for your VM. Boot the VM, install virtualization packages, and verify that nested virt is working by running the following command as root: <br><pre>virt-host-validate</pre>
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization libvirt set guest memory]]
  
Some notes on nested virt with AMD and Intel:
+
==== Hotplug ====
  
* http://kashyapc.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/nested-virtualization-with-kvm-and-amd/
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Attach/Detach a SCSI device to guest]]
* http://kashyapc.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/nested-virtualization-with-kvm-intel/
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Hotplug USB device to guest]]
* http://kashyapc.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/nested-virtualization-with-intel-take-2-with-fedora-17/
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization NIC Hotplug virsh attach detach]]
  
== Areas to test ==
+
==== virtio-scsi ====
  
=== '''VM Install''' ===
+
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Virtio SCSI Install]]
 +
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Virtio SCSI Hotplug]]
  
Record your results for these test cases in the '''[[#Test Results |Test Results]]''' section.
+
==== libguestfs and tools ====
 
 
If you don't already have a VM available, run through one of these test cases. A fully functioning VM is required for every other test case!
 
 
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization CDROM Guest Install| Guest install via CDROM]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization URL Guest Install| Guest install via URL]]
 
 
 
Next give this a run through, which should ensure things aren't broken in some obvious manner:
 
 
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Virt Manager Lifecycle|VM Lifecycle (start, stop, save, delete, ...)]]
 
 
 
=== '''New tests and features''' ===
 
 
 
Record your results for these test cases in the '''[[#Test Results|Test Results]]''' section.
 
 
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Live Backup|Live VM disk backup]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Guest Suspend Hibernate|VM suspend/hibernate]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Seccomp Sandboxing|VM sandboxing w/ syscall filters]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization IO Throttling|VM IO throttling]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization PV EOI|VM PV EOI performance optimization]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization USB3 Device Passthrough|USB3 device assignment]]
 
* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization USB Redirection|USB Redirection]]
 
 
 
=== libguestfs and tools ===
 
  
 
You will need Fedora 18 (host) and at least one guest (but the more the merrier).

In Fedora 18, we are using [http://libvirt.org libvirt] to launch the appliance, and [http://selinuxproject.org/page/SVirt sVirt] + SELinux to make everything [http://libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#security much more secure].  Therefore it's better (though not required) if you can run these tests with SELinux set to enforcing.

==== GuestOS compatibility ====
 
 
Some test cases used in previous test days. Still useful to test for regressions!
 
 
 
Migration:

* [[QA:Testcase Virtualization Virtio SCSI Hotplug|Virtio SCSI hotplug]]
 
 
 
 
 
== Test Results ==
 
 
 
Each tester should add a row for their results.
 
 
 
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to [https://bugzilla.redhat.com Bugzilla]. If you have any questions about what component to file against,
 
just shout in the IRC channel and we can help you out. Same goes for any selinux alerts you might see!
