For a long time I’ve been using OpenVZ as my VM container, some with Virtualmin GPL in them for multi-domain hosting, and others as VPS’s, cos my current(old but useful) server doesn’t support VT.
I’ve recently purchased a refurbed 2ru box that does support VT and am wanting to run KVM, as Debian no longer has openvz as std kernels.
But I want to keep using the old 1ru as my management server/DNS/mail filter/ISCSI target etc, but move the VMs to the 2ru.
After trialling with other VM provisioning software, ie openStack, Foreman/Puppet and lots and lots of reading, i’m finding Cloudmin will probably be the way I go, but I’m trying to get my head around something I would like to do.
So my questions are:
- Can I run Cloudmin GPL on my 1ru as a master and Cloudmin GPL KVM on my 2ru as a slave with guests here?
- Can Cloudmin GPL on my 1ru also manage Virtualmin guest instances on the 2ru with out Virtualmin installed on the 1ru master?
- Can I provision from the 1ru KVM qcow2 images to the 2ru host via the ISCSI target in the 1ru?
If someone can point me to reading I need to look at and answer these, I would be very grateful, as I think from there I would find my way on this.
My main thing is understanding if Cloudmin can be run this way.
Thanks in advance.
