VNX Installation over Fedora

Follow this steps to install VNX over Fedora 23:

  • Install packages:
    dnf install -y qemu-kvm libvirt virt-manager virt-viewer perl-XML-LibXML
    dnf install -y perl-Sys-Virt perl-NetAddr-IP perl-XML-LibXML perl-XML-Tidy 
    dnf install -y perl-AppConfig perl-Readonly perl-Net-Pcap perl-Net-IPv6Addr
    dnf install -y perl-Net-Telnet perl-IO-Pty-Easy  perl-Exception-Class pv
    dnf install -y wmctrl uml_utilities perl-DBI libxml2-devel perl-Net-IP 
    dnf install -y roxterm xterm graphviz tree curl w3m  picocom expect pv
    dnf install -y tunctl screen wget lxc lxc-extra lxc-templates openvswitch
  • Tune libvirt configuration to work with VNX. In particular, edit /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf file and set the following parameters:
  • security_driver = "none"
    user = "root"
    group = "root"
    cgroup_device_acl = [
       "/dev/null", "/dev/full", "/dev/zero",
       "/dev/random", "/dev/urandom",
       "/dev/ptmx", "/dev/kvm", "/dev/kqemu",
       "/dev/rtc", "/dev/hpet", "/dev/vfio/vfio", "/dev/net/tun"

    (you have to add "/dev/net/tun") and restart libvirtd for the changes to take effect:

    sudo systemctl restart libvirt-bin
  • Install VNX:
  • mkdir /tmp/vnx-update
    cd /tmp/vnx-update
    wget -N
    tar xfvz vnx-latest.tgz
    cd vnx-*
  • Create the VNX config file (/etc/vnx.conf). You just can move the sample config file:
  • mv /usr/share/vnx/etc/vnx.conf.sample /etc/vnx.conf
