[pve-devel] [PATCH v5 0/3] RFC: cloud-init update

Hi Wolfgang,

I begin to test your patches,
seem to works fine here.

I have some questions:

1)-does it work with windows ? (as we expose the config drive as drive and not cdrom)

2)-as we put it as ide3, it could break some guest disk drive order, if we don't use disk uuid in /etc/fstab
 for example : 
 user have 2 virtio-scsi disk
  /dev/sda
  /dev/sdb
 
 with /etc/fstab
 /dev/sda  /
 /dev/sdb  /var

now, with ide3, it's going to /dev/sda , as AFAIK, they are assigned by pci slots order.

Maybe create a sata controller on the lastest pcislot/bridge could avoid that. (need to test qemu 2.4 sata migration)

3) do we really to define a special storage for hosting qcow2 ? maybe always store it in local storage and rsync it on live migration.
   (everybody don't have a nfs shared storage)

I'm not sure but I think than sata/ahci controller are now migratable in qemu master (so for qemu 2.4) 

http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=commit;h=04329029a8c539eb5f75dcb6d8b016f0c53a031a 

maybe we could add a dedicated sata controller for cloudinit drive ?

We just talked this over a bit again. 

If we keep going with this approach we could actually remove the 
cloudinit config parameter and, similar to what Alexandre did in the 
first patches, have an `ideX: cloudinit,storage=STOREID` parameter 
enable cloudinit (but have it fix in the config rather than added after 
doing `cloudinit: 1`). 
For the UI enabling and disabling cloudinit would then be 
adding/removing a cloudinit device. It would then also not have to be 
hardcoded to ide3 but be configurable to any block device like when 
adding a hard disk. 

We'd then still need a parameter for templates. (Either a new one like 
`cloudinit-template: xyz` or if we plan on adding more cloud-init 
parameters we could keep `cloudinit: variouts,comma=separated,args`. 

Another TODO before I forget about it again: physical cdrom drives 
probably don't need `media=cdrom` in the code. should check that.
