Jump Server Configuration:

(Rough Placeholder, edit me)


  1. Obtain CentOS 7 Minimal ISO and install
  1. Set parameters appropriate for your environment during installation
  2. Disable NetworkManager
systemctl disable NetworkManager
  1. Configure your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files for your network
  2. Restart networking
service network restart
  1. Edit /etc/resolv.conf and add a nameserver
vi /etc/resolv.conf
  1. Install libvirt & kvm
yum -y update yum -y install kvm qemu-kvm libvirt systemctl enable libvirtd
  1. Reboot:
shutdown -r now
  1. If you wish to avoid annoying delay when use ssh to log in, disable DNS lookups:

vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Uncomment “UseDNS yes”, change ‘yes’ to ‘no’.


  1. Restart sshd
systemctl restart sshd
  1. Install virt-install
yum -y install virt-install
  1. Visit and D/L the OPNFV Fuel ISO
  2. Create a bridge using the interface on the PXE network, for example: br0
  3. Make a directory owned by qemu:

mkdir /home/qemu; mkdir -p /home/qemu/VMs/fuel-6.0/disk

chown -R qemu:qemu /home/qemu

  1. Copy the ISO to /home/qemu

cd /home/qemu

virt-install -n opnfv-2015-05-22_18-34-07-fuel -r 4096 --vcpus=4 --cpuset=0-3 -c opnfv-2015-05-22_18-34-07.iso --os-type=linux --os-variant=rhel6 --boot hd,cdrom --disk path=/home/qemu/VMs/mirantis-fuel-6.0/disk/fuel- vhd0.qcow2,bus=virtio,size=50,format=qcow2 -w bridge=br0,model=virtio --graphics vnc,listen=

  1. Temporarily flush the firewall rules to make things easier:
iptables -F
  1. Connect to the console of the installing VM with your favorite VNC client.
  2. Change the IP settings to match the pod, use an IP in the PXE/Admin network for the Fuel Master
