This is for DevCloud (VirtualBox) (recommended offline
infra/host/storage dev appliance for developers).

This can be removed, any useful content should be moved to

Useful stuff should be moved to is deprecated now.

We can get rid of this one.

Should be:
mvn clean install -P systemvm,developer -DskipTests (# if skipping tests)

Hope you're running latest DevCloud and running mgmt server on host
os/laptop, else you should use marvin directly instead of maven
calling marvin to deploy datacenter for you:

cd tools/devcloud;
# If mgmt server running on host os
python ../marvin/marvin/ -i devcloud.cfg

# If mgmt server running inside devcloud,
# make sure to change host value to in devcloud.sql
before you deplodyb
python ../marvin/marvin/ -i devcloud_internal-mgt.cfg

What I explained in my blog was manual creation for most part, we have
some stuff in tools/devcloud which is supposed to build devcloud using
viewee/vagrant/vbox here: (it's not maintained for long, it may not
work now, will check next week):

Hope this helps.
