Description

Currently, VMs created manually outside of OpenNebula are detected, and stored in the host resource as a list of "wild" VMs.
These VMs could be included as a VM resource, and be monitored.

Since the VMs were not created by OpenNebula, the actions should be limited to a small set, or even to none.

History

#1 Updated by Carlos Martín almost 6 years ago

This was also requested during the OpenNebulaConf.

The specific use case was to deploy ONE inside a VM, add the physical host to ONE, and then make ONE be aware of its own VM.
This would allow, for instance, to live-migrate the frontend to another host.

#2 Updated by Ruben S. Montero over 5 years ago

  • Subject changed from Include "wild" VMs in the VM pool to Import KVM/Xen running VMs
  • Category changed from Core & System to CLI
  • Target version set to Release 4.14

This is currently done for vCenter and all the functionality needed is in place. This is to build user-space tools to import the VMs in the same way onevcenter vms does.
