Subject RE: [DISCUSS] HyperV msi
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2014 10:39:11 GMT

I started working on packaging (making msi) the HyperV agent code at Github -
It does the following

- packages all the needed files
- Prompts for user\password the HyperV agent should run under
- Option to create and install an SSL certificate since the communication between mgmt server
and HyperV agent is secure. One has also an option to install a different ssl certificate.
Procedure to install the certificate onto HyperV agent is
- option to update, upgrade and downgrade the installation.

Steps to generate msi are present here

Only concern I have the existing code is using MSBUILD(.NET Framework) and I am not sure about
the licensing part of it. I am trying to figure it out. Any help here is welcome. Please feel
free to change the code\come up with suggestions around this.

In passing I saw some new docs from Radhika on Hyper-V. A first version pointed to a cloudplatform.msi,
Radhika modified it to point to the wiki:

Reading the wiki, it explains how to build the agent.exe file from source and also points
to a github project to build the installer.

I think we should build this installer and provide it as convenience msi just like we provide
convenience packages. We can then ask Wido to host it.

What do you guys think ? Can someone build a cloudstack hyperv agent msi and get it to Wido
for hosting ?
