Stable Xen Dom0 and DomU via Fedora 12

Zhiqiang Ma
Hi all,

Our group are using Fedora (We updated the system to Fedora 12
recently) in our research cluster and we virtualize the computing
resources using Xen. I have do a lot test and we finally settle on a
stable Xen solution for our cluster. The test shows it is quite stable
and we are satisfy with the virtual machine's performance.

We use Xen 4.0.0 and Xenified Linux kernel 2.6.32.13 to set up Dom0
since Fedora 12 no longer provides kernel form Dom0:
http://pkill.info/b/2252/setting-up-stable-xen-dom0-with-fedora-xen-4-0-0-with-xenified-linux-kernel-2-6-32-13-in-fedora-12/

Fedora 12's kernel is already pv_ops enabled. We are happy to install
Fedora 12 in the virtual machine without any special configuration.
All the packages are from Fedora's repository:
http://pkill.info/b/2256/setting-up-stable-xen-domu-with-fedora-unmodified-fedora-12-on-top-of-xenified-fedora-12-dom0-with-xen-4-0-0/

I know both the Xen and the kernel are not the most latest ones. But
the current ones are enough for us.

Please give your comments on this solution. Your suggestions will be
highly appreciated.

Thanks.
Eric

Actually, Pasi himself managed a bit different :)

Hello,

I just hacked together Xen 4.0.1-rc3-pre src.rpm package for Fedora 13,
and I thought I'd share it. It should work with Fedora 12 aswell.

download-link:
http://pasik.reaktio.net/fedora/xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm


Instructions to compile/install:

- Check http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/Xen4.0 wiki page and install the packages/rpms listed there!
- Download xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm
- rpm -i xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm
- rpmbuild -bb xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc3.fc13.src.rpm

After a while you should see:

- rpm -Uvh xen*4.0.1*.rpm
- Install Xen dom0 capable kernel,

********************************************************************
edit grub.conf, reboot

Note that Xen 4.0.1-rcX is required for the latest xen/stable-2.6.32.x kernels (2.6.32.15+),
they won't work with Xen 4.0.0 anymore.

This unofficial src.rpm works for me, hopefully for you aswell :)

But thanks all the same for the nice information. I will try Pasi's

Do you setup libvirt 0.8.2  ,...,virt-install,virt-manager ?


yum install xen-4.0.1-5.7.fc13.x86_64.rpm \
xen-debuginfo-4.0.1-5.7.fc13.x86_64.rpm \

We don't use libvirt.

We simply use xm command to manage VMs. xm + script is enough for us
by now since our cluster is not very big.

Re: Stable Xen Dom0 and DomU via Fedora 12

Zhiqiang Ma
In reply to this post by Zhiqiang Ma
An update to this:

We decide to use Xen 3.4.3 Fedora 12 Dom0 with xenified Dom0 kernel.
Xen 3.4.3 works with more kinds of DomUs (F11, F12) while Xen 4.0.0
(and Xen 4.0.1) only works with newer version of kernel in F12.

This solution is tested to be stable. We run distributed parallel
experiments on it (usually 7 DomUs on one physical machine) and it
works well for us.

The "recommended" ones in http://pkill.info/b/2367/xen-solutions/ is
our solution by now. I will also maintain and update this post with
tested solution. Xen 3.4.3 + xenified kernel 2.6.32.13 is quite solid
in our servers:
F12 Dom0: http://pkill.info/b/2405/setting-up-stable-xen-dom0-with-fedora-xen-3-4-3-with-xenified-linux-kernel-2-6-32-13-in-fedora-12/
F12 DomU: http://pkill.info/b/2256/setting-up-stable-xen-domu-with-fedora-unmodified-fedora-12-on-top-of-xenified-fedora-12-dom0-with-xen-4-0-0/

Hope this info can help the others who want to set up Xen VMs on Fedora.

Thanks.
Zhiqiang
