Description

We need to create and update the support_server used in remote installation in openqa.opensuse.org. The purpose is to fix the problem appeared in the associated ticket which enabled the vnc remote installation[0] and adjust the tests removing the workaround(remote_target.pm:L28). The work in the spike[1] shows that this should make the trick.

The problem is that this didnt work quite well for me[2] as it cant find the packages in the repos. So some extra effort might required.

Acceptance criteria

  • no workaround to get out of the yast in target machine
  • the remote ssh and vnc tests should get to the desktop after the installation finish
  • it has been observed a segmentation fault in ssh. if this does not appear any more with newer image, that s good, otherwise a bug should be filed.

Suggestions

  • create a xml, run the support_server generator and publish the image
  • use an existing qcow and modify it to include the packages that it needs
  • TW image would be preferable is will be possible to run zypper dup next time we need updated image

Finally with a new image does not work: http://aquarius.suse.cz/tests/1538# remote still needs the ctrl+alt+del to close YaST installer
To create the image:

  • Get latest qcow2 from TW create_hdd_gnome
  • Install pattern dhcp_dns_server
  • Switch from Network Manager to Wicked
  • Disable firewall
  • To avoid dimming of the screen, turn off gnome screensaver gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 0 and turn off gnome suspend gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-type 'nothing'
  • In job conf delete QEMUVGA and use VIRTIO_CONSOLE=1
