1Installing a test scripts server on XVM
2=======================================
3
4It's useful to have a less secure scripts server for testing
5purposes.  Here's what you have to do:
6
71. Creating the VM
8------------------
9
10To authenticate to xvm.mit.edu with root tickets, you need
11a browser that suppors SPNEGO;  Firefox is one such browser and
12the following instructions will assume it.  Browse to about:config
13and modify the key 'network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris' to be
14
15    https://xvm.mit.edu:442/*
16
17Then, with active root tickets on your system, navigate to
18
19    https://xvm.mit.edu:442/
20
21You should be logged in as root, and if you are on scripts-root
22you should be able to assign ownership to scripts.
23
24[XXX: there should be a way to do this with remctl too]
25
262. Spin up
27----------
28
29These instructions are mostly the same as the latter part of
30install-fedora, with the following changes:
31
32VNC
33---
34
35You will not need to sketchily forward VNC, because XVM has a built
36in VNC console.
37
38Password
39--------
40
41Do NOT use the scripts-root password.  Pick something else.
42
43Disks
44-----
45
46The standard Scripts setup has separate LVM partitions for root and
47swap, as well as a non-LVM partition for boot.  You will not have this
48for XVM, so the Fedora defaults mostly work.  Don't use ext4 though.
Note: See TracBrowser for help on using the repository browser.
