Mount custom ISO on SolusIO?
I am looking for the ability for the client and admin to create VM's and install OS with custom ISO on SolusIO? I am also looking to be able to mount a ISO image on VM for other reasons as well.
Currently, there is no such built-in functionality in the product. Only boot from Rescue ISO is available:
https://features.solus.io/topic/75-use-of-iso-for-boot here is a feature request that you can vote for on Suggest Idea portal
And use manual tweak of a virtual machine configuration file to attach ISO image as a workaround:
- Connect to CR node via SSH
- Using VPS UUID that can be found in SolusIO edit configuration:
virsh edit UUID
Change the boot order and path to ISO:
<boot dev='cdrom'/> << change this line
<disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
<driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
<source file='path-to-iso'/> << put the path to corresponding iso file
<target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
- Restart VPS:
virsh reboot UUID
