VNX latest features implemented

  • 7/5/2016 - New option added to 'vnx_download_rootfs' command. Now vnx_download_rootfs includes -p pattern option to specify a string to filter the list of root filesystems. For example, to see only the lxc images just type:
  • vnx_download_rootfs -p lxc
    
  • 2/5/2016 - OpenBSD support: VNX now supports OpenBSD virtual machines thanks to Francisco Javier Ruiz contribution. Update your VNX version with vnx_update, download the OpenBSD root filesystems using vnx_download_rootfs and test it with the simple_openbsd.xml (32 bits) and simple_openbsd64.xml (64 bits).
  • 21/3/2016 - Host command execution modified: by default <exec> commands defined for the <host> where always executed, even if a virtual machine list was specified with -M option. Now, if -M option is selected, host commands are only executed if 'host' is included in the list. For example:
  • vnx -f scenario.xml -x cmd1 -M vm1,vm2,host
    

    will execute al, the <exec> tags defined in vm1, vm2 and the host.

  • 21/3/2016 - Multiline commands in <exec> tags, by using the standard convention of ending the first lines with an '\':
    <exec seq="createfiles" type="verbatim">
      touch \
        /tmp/file1 \
        /tmp/file2 
    </exec>
