Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-9813) Use configdrive for userdata, metadata & password
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2017 16:43:00 GMT


Marcus Sorensen commented on CLOUDSTACK-9813:

It can be difficult for block-based primary storage to host the ISO, though a primary-storage
hosted ISO would eliminate live migration issues. I was thinking the ISO would just be created
on the fly in some host temp space during the PrepareForMigrationCommand, along with the creation
of relevant network bridges and other setup on the destination. It also reduces the exposure
of potentially sensitive configuration information to the host on which the VM resides rather
than cluster-wide for primary or zone-wide for secondary.

> To avoid the use of an extra VM for the virtual router we implement configdrive for userdata,
metadata & password. 
> The configdrive ISO is created on the secondary store and the KVM & VMware plugins
are adapted to accept the configdrive ISO as second cdrom.
> Is applicable for isolated, VPC and shared networks.
