We are setting up the virtual server smt as a guest on teapot.

It will store its SMT data (/srv/www/htdocs/) in a directory in teapot which it will access via 9p sharing.

We have set up teapot using the Virtual Machine Host pattern, so we already have br0.

In /etc/qemu/bridge.conf add the line

allow br0

Create image file:

qemu-img create /i/smt-vm/smt.img 16G


virt-install --name smt --disk /i/smt-vm/smt.img --memory 4096 \
--location /ext1/isos/suse/sles/12/sp1/SLE-12-SP1-Server-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso \
--boot cdrom

Edit the virtual machine’s description with virsh edit smt, and inside <devices>..</devices>:

  <filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
     <source dir='/ext1/smtdata'/>
     <target dir='smtdata'/>

Add to /etc/fstab on smt:

smtdata /srv/www/htdocs 9p rw,trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L,posixacl,access=client 0 0

Create user smt on teapot with the same uid as on smt.

First rsync /srv/www/htdocs/ to /ext1/smtdata/ on teapot.

Then do a mount -a on smt.

On teapot: bind mounts for the stuff we are exporting by NFS — add to /etc/fstab:

/ext1/smtdata/repo/ /nfs/repo none bind 0 0

Exporting over NFS:

Add to /etc/exports on teapot:

/nfs       *(fsid=0,ro,all_squash,sync,no_subtree_check)
/nfs/repo/ *(ro,all_squash,no_subtree_check)

For automounting on gryphon:

In /etc/auto.master add the line:

/-        /etc/auto.smt  --timeout=60

Add the file /etc/auto.smt with contents:

/smt  -fstype=nfs,ro     teapot:/repo
