Below are my findings and suggestions.

Dependencies for mgmt server to run on windows.

1.            ssh-keygen tool ( default available on linux. Its required to generate id_rsa_cloud

2.            mount cmd ( this is used by vmware/hyperv to mount sec storage on mgmt server
to copy the systemvm.iso to copy to Hosts)

3.   ( this is binary file executes on mgmt server to inject the dynamically
generated sshkeys to systemvm.iso. its bash file)

4.            there is some code part in mgmt. server where "sudo" cmd is uses to execute
the bash files. We have to rewrite those parts to handle it for windows.

5.            Mkisofs this is used to generate the systemvm.iso

My thought for the dependencies

1.            we can generate ssh-keygen binary from c source or use the putty keygen utility
to generate the keys.
[Damoder] I also looked into it and found only putty utility as useful one for now assuming
that keys will be available already. Probably will think on it once POC is done.

2.            Mount ( we have to rewrite the code in mgmt. server to handle how to copy in
nfs or cifs  remote path by referencing them locally)
[Damoder] We are thinking to use Samba integration here

3.            For We have to write a new to bat file /python which will do the
similar job.
[Damoder] We have written a python script for this. This is in testing mode right now.

4.            There is already windows binary mkisofs is available we can use it.
[Damoder] Windows binary of mkisofs is working fine.

Subject: [PROPOSAL] Windowsfication Of ACS


The current ACS management server runs only on linux based operating systems.

Though it runs on windows under Cygwin terminal with some effort, I'd like to introduce this
feature to make sure that the management server runs on windows without any dependencies on
Cygwin etc.

The Jira Ticket :

Feedback/comments are welcome.

Thanks & Regards
