adt−virt-xenlvm

NAME

adt−virt−xenlvm − autopkgtest virtualisation server using Xen and LVM

SYNOPSYS

adt−virt−xenlvm [options] −− [adt-xenlvm options]

DESCRIPTION

adt-virt-xenlvm provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using a Xen virtual machine and LVM snapshots. It adapts the raw functionality provided by the adt-xenlvm-* tools for use by autopkgtest.

Normally adt-virt-xenlvm will be invoked by adt-run.

adt-virt-xenlvm uses adt-xenlvm-with-testbed and adt-xenlvm-on-testbed. The testbed must have previously been set up with adt-xenlvm-setup.

Neither adt-virt-xenlvm nor adt-xenlvm-with-testbed do any locking; it is the the caller’s responsibility not to attempt concurrent use of any particular testbed.

OPTIONS

--distro=distro

Specifies a different distro (ie, the use of a different testbed).

--nominum=nominum

Specifies a different nominum (ie, the use of a different testbed).

−−userv

Specifies that the adt-xenlvm tools should not be run directly, but rather via userv. The calling user must be permitted to use userv root adt-xenlvm-testbed. In the default configuration, this means being a member of the AdtXenUs group.

-- --adt-xenlvm-option=adt-xenlvm-value

Following the first occurrence of -- on the adt-virt-xenlvm commandline, any of the values in the adt-xenlvm configuration may be set in the usual way. The arguments are simply passed to adt-virt-xenlvm.

See /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest-xenlvm/README.gz for full details of adt-xenlvm.

-- -Dvarname=value

If −−userv was specified, options following the first -- on the adt-virt-xenlvm commandline are passed as option arguments to userv. These should normally be user-defined variable settings using -D which are expected by the autopkgtest-xenlvm/userv-target script. Currently only distro and nominum are expected, and these can be set using adt-virt-xenlvm’s own options.

−d | −−debug

Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.

INPUT, OUTPUT AND EXIT STATUS

The behaviour of adt-virt-xenlvm is as described by the AutomatedTesting virtualisation regime specification.
