Initial setup

  • Prepare installation media available at {URL} according to instructions from Installation Guide
  • Optionally install virtualization support in Fedora:
# yum -y install @virtualization
# service libvirtd start
# cp $FEDORA_ISO /var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora.iso
  • To start virtual machine you can use this command:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c /var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora.iso
  • You can destroy virtual machine right after execution of a test case with these commands:
# virsh destroy test-machine101
# virsh undefine --remove-all-storage test-machine101

Setup

Important.png
Bare metal required
This can not be run in virtual machine
Important.png
Data will be lost
This test case requires installation on hard drives. All data will be deleted during setup and/or installation
  1. You need a machine with bios/firmware RAID supported by dmraid or MD. Linux MD driver supports Intel Matrix RAID technology, dmraid supports following products:
    • asr  : Adaptec HostRAID ASR (0,1,10)
    • ddf1  : SNIA DDF1 (0,1,4,5,linear)
    • hpt37x  : Highpoint HPT37X (S,0,1,10,01)
    • hpt45x  : Highpoint HPT45X (S,0,1,10)
    • isw  : Intel Software RAID (0,1,5,01)
    • jmicron : JMicron ATARAID (S,0,1)

    • pdc  : Promise FastTrack (S,0,1,10)
    • sil  : Silicon Image(tm) Medley(tm) (0,1,10)
    • via  : VIA Software RAID (S,0,1,10)
    • dos  : DOS partitions on SW RAIDs
  2. you need multiple hard drives connected to controller supporting RAID setup,
  3. setup arbitary RAID level in your firmware.

Action

  1. Boot the installation media on prepared machine,
  2. finish the installation by choosing default options.

Expected Results

  1. Installation starts up properly,
  2. RAID device is recognized and used,
  3. system is installed without issue, it boots up,
  4. system is installed on RAID and not underlying devices.

Installation on iSCSI

Setup

Important.png
Additional computer required
This test case requires test machine and another computer providing necessary services
Note.png
The other iSCSI targets
This document describes, how to work with sw iSCSI target on Fedora with scsi-target-utils package. If you managed hw target for testing or if you are using different tools for sw targets, hopefully you are also able to control it.
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
Hint
You can setup iSCSI target on the physical host where you are running your virtual machines
  • Setup iSCSI target (server providing iSCSI drive). To run software iSCSI target on Fedora run following commands:
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/disk bs=1M seek=8000 count=1
# losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/disk
# yum -y install scsi-target-utils
# service tgtd start
# tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid=1 --targetname iqn.2009-02.com.example:for.all
# tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 1 --lun 1 -b /dev/loop0
# tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode target --tid 1 -I ALL
  • note the IP address of machine hosting the iSCSI target,
  • run the installation on bare metal or virtual machine,
    • To start virtual machine you can use this command:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c /var/lib/libvirt/images

Action

  1. In INSTALLATION DESTINATION select review/modify click Add a disk button,
  2. press Add iSCSI Target button on next screen,
  3. put IP address of machine hosting the prepared iSCSI target and finish the procedure,
  4. ensure the iSCSI disk as well as local hard drive is selected for installation,
  5. select review/modify choice for partitioning,
  6. create / mountpoint, place it on iSCSI target,
  7. create /boot mountpoint, place it on local disk,
  8. create all other necessary partitions,
  9. complete the installation and reboot the system.

Expected Results

  1. iSCSI target is added and used for installation,
  2. mountpoints can be assigned to patitions/logical volumes placed on iSCSI disk,
  3. installation is finished and system starts up,
  4. iSCSI is initialized during boot and all filesystems are mounted,
  5. filesystem layout is in accordance with setup in the installer.

Cleanup

  • To stop iSCSI target:
# service tgtd stop
# losetup -d /dev/loop0
# rm -f /tmp/disk
