    OPENNEBULA 3.4.1 Windows XP VM creation was never these much easy before Also try migration and live migration of a Windows XP VM 

    Friends, I have experimented with few of the well known software tools prevailing in the industry to create an IAAS (Infrastructure As A Service) platform. I am amazed with the speed!! and simplicity!! of OpenNebula 3.4 , especially with VMWARE VM creation and KVM based WINDOWS VM creation. Migration and Live Migration with a Windows XP VM was never easy and faster before.

    This tutorial is an outcome of the enjoyment I have experienced.

    In this tutorial, I am providing a easy and faster way of creating a Windows VM and Contextualization. This time “no Dot-net frameworks, no Powershells”, Just a VB script and a Windows batch file would be enough to send your IP address and new hostname from OpenNebula to Windows VM.

    OPENNEBULA 3.4.1 and Windows XP VM – try Migration and Live Migration

    Hope you may enjoy this……

      Hello Sir,

      I tried your windows instance launching and migration and live migration… Its too super….
      Instance launching speed awesome…. I didn’t experience it at eucalyptus and openstact windows instance launching part….

      And migration also done with in few second…..It’s too good….

      Opennabula configuration steps are very easy to follow…. And easy to understand it…

      Merci beaucoup pour ton tuto. Mais j’aurais besoin d’aide pour etendre cela sur tois machines : une machine pour le front-end et deux autres pour les noeuds du cluster!

      thank you. I coul write in english but was not sure it would be clear enough for you. My problem is to set up a private cloud with openNebula. I would like to use the virtual machines openNebula provide to create a VDI architecture. Advise me if my idea is wrong or if it’s possible to do such a thing.

      • cloudblab 4:27 pm on July 17, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        VDI comes in two types. 1. Static – where a user gets a dedicated VM designated for him. So VM needs to be there physically in a ready state. (high resource requirement)
        2. Dynamic – based on user requirement, a VM will be created on the fly using warehoused image and a predefined template.
        You can create a VDI solution using OpenNebula as the VM provider tool.
        There are no readymade VDI tools like the ones offered by Citrix, Oracle , VMWare, Microsoft etc.
        You can use OpenNebula oZones to create and manage a Virtual Datacenter. Refer: http://opennebula.org/documentation:rel3.6:ozones

      Hello,
      Thank you for the GREAT document,
      I have just two issues,
      1 – Why internet connection is lost when creating the bridge, is there a way to keep it running.
      2 – oned fails to start, I’ve the error :
      Could not create database.
      oned failed to start

      Thanks in advance.

      • Ami 9:12 pm on August 10, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Sorry, the second was just because I forgot to execute : GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON opennebula.* TO ‘oneadmin’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘oneadmin’;

        Ami,
        If you are using Ubuntu:

        1. Check if you have specified gateway in the network script written for the bridge.
        gateway

        in /etc/network/interfaces file

        e.g.

        1. The loopback network interface

        auto lo
        iface lo inet loopback

        1. Bridge between eth0 and eth1

        auto br0

        iface br0 inet static

        1. For static configuration delete or comment out the above line and uncomment the following:

        iface br0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.10
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        gateway 192.168.1.1
        dns-nameservers 192.168.1.5
        dns-search example.com

        2:Else, if you are using Ubuntu:

        Enabling Internet Use on the Bridging Computer
        ip route add default via
        dhclient
        If you get a message back from the first command, such as

        SIOCADDRT: File exists
        or

        SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
        Then skip to the second command.

        To ensure that you are connected to the internet, ping the IP address with the command below.

        ping http://www.google.com

        It should sucessfully ping

      is it possible to install opennebula on unbuntu 10.04 or other version..except ubuntu server 12.04
      how ?????

      • cloudblab 2:09 pm on September 20, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Yes. I have tried it in Ubuntu 10.10,11.04,11.10 and 12.04
        Centos 6,6.2,6.3
        Ubuntu Desktop 12.10 etc

        • Anuradha 10:49 am on September 23, 2012 Permalink

          Hi,
          Can we use the same document that you have provided for installing opennebula on ubuntu desktop version 11.10 or do we have to follow something different?

        • cloudblab 11:27 am on September 24, 2012 Permalink

          Anuradha,
          Thanks for referring to my documentation.Are you in India/Chennai?
          Now, regarding your question:
          Yes you can. Only thing is there may be some difference in the name of certain packages between Ubuntu desktop 11.10 and Server 12.04.
          To identify the correct package-name in any ubuntu version,use the following command:
          apt-cache search [PACKAGE-NAME]
          I think you have to look out for change in names of following packages in Ubuntu 11.10 desktop , when compared with 12.04
          sudo apt-get install libc6 libgcc1 libmysqlclient16 libpassword-ruby libsequel-ruby libsqlite3-0 libssl0.9.8
          libstdc++6 libxml2 libxmlrpc-c3-0 libxmlrpc-core-c3-0

          Thanks are regards,
          Anil Kumar

I did try out the suggestion you had made for some other member, but it doesn’t work. My internet connection works at times but doesn’t some times. I am unable to figure out the issue, Please help….

      Thank you so much Sir Anil Kumar,

      When i register the image with oneimage command, i got the error:
      Message received: CP FAILURE 13 Not allowed to copy image
      file /var/lib/one/images/ttylinux.img
      Thu Oct 25 08:25:03 2012 [ImM][E]: Error copying image in the datastore: Not allowed to copy

      So, i followed your advice try to copy the image to /var/lib/images, not /var/lib/one/images and it worked for me. I was successfull register with ttylinux.img via oneimage command & bootable & logged on to ttylinux virtual machine. Cause i didn’t pay attention about path of image file in your document (/var/lib/images).

      Thank you for great document & for your help. It helps me a lot.

      Thanks you.

      Best regards.

      Hello sir,
      First of all thank you for putting up such a well-structured tutorial…All the steps worked perfectly for me except this one – “scons sqlite=no mysql=yes” . I get the following error :
      Error searching for xmlrpc-c libraries. Please check this things:

      You have installed development libraries for xmlrpc-c. One way to check

      this is calling xmlrpc-c-config that is provided with the development
      package.

      Check that the version of xmlrpc-c is at least 1.06. You can do this also

      calling:
      $ xmlrpc-c-config –version

      If all this requirements are already met please send log files located in

      .xmlrpc_test to the mailing list.

      I dont know how to resolve this . Could you pleese help with this.

      Thanks in advance

      • cloudblab 12:29 am on February 3, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        May I know the following information: 1. Are you using Ubuntu 12.04. 2. Which version of OpenNebula you are trying? 3. Did you setup MYSQL properly? 4. Did you do sudo apt-get update after installing Ubuntu?

      Dear Sir,
      Thank you so much for a brilliant tutorial!
      All the steps have worked perfectly for me except when it comes to the oneimage command
      Like you have described in the tutorial i moved the ttylinux.img file to /var/lib/images and changed the path in image.one but when i try to do
      oneimage create image.one -d default
      it gives the following error
      [ImageAllocate] Cannot determine Image SIZE
      Could you please suggest some way to resolve this?

      Thanks in advance!

        3. You have specified the correct path for the image file in the image template.
