Installing UCSPE 2.2.3a on Red Hat KVM

Purpose:
Provide a known method of installing the UCSM Emulator on KVM.

Scope:
Cisco UCS and Red Hat System Administrators

Requirements:
- An available LVM-VG with aproximately 20Gb free
- Packages libvirt and virt-manager installed on the host
- Provided TechZone virt-manager XML file

Download Links:
- UCSM Emulator 2.2.3a alternate zip download
- UCSM Emulator 2.2.3a firmware metapackage

1. Convert vmdk files to raw
for i in `ls *.vmdk` ; do qemu-img convert $i -O raw $i.raw ; done

2. Create logical volumes for kvm

Locate a volume group with free space:
[root@itxfiler qemu]# vgs

VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree

vg_itxfiler 1 9 0 wz--n- 595.68g 165.23g

Identify the size and create new logical volumes:
# ls -l *.raw | awk '{print $5 " " $9}'
1073741824 ucspe.vmdk.raw
1073741824 ucspe-0.vmdk.raw
4294967296 ucspe-1.vmdk.raw
1073741824 ucspe-2.vmdk.raw

Create the partitions:
lvcreate -L 1073741824b -n ucsemu vg_itxfiler
lvcreate -L 1073741824b -n ucsemu0 vg_itxfiler
lvcreate -L 1073741824b -n ucsemu1 vg_itxfiler
lvcreate -L 1073741824b -n ucsemu2 vg_itxfiler
3. Migrate raw partition data to volumes
dd if=ucspe.vmdk.raw of=/dev/vg_itxfiler/ucsemu
dd if=ucspe-0.vmdk.raw of=/dev/vg_itxfiler/ucsemu0
dd if=ucspe-1.vmdk.raw of=/dev/vg_itxfiler/ucsemu1
dd if=ucspe-2.vmdk.raw of=/dev/vg_itxfiler/ucsemu2

4. Import the UCSM Emulator Domain Profile XML
[root@itxfiler qemu]# cat ucsEmu.xml

<!-- UCSM Emulator Working-Minimal noSE -->

Now import it into virt-manager with virsh:

#  virsh define /etc/libvirt/qemu/ucsEmu.xml

*You may need to configure a static keymap of en-us in virt-manager to use the console.

Launch CLI GUI w/o Browser: (survives upgrades)

# javaws http://yourIpAddr/ucsm/ucsm.jnlp !

First-login:

admin / password
