Description

openQA doesn't support cross-platform MM tests, so we cannot use 64bit support server.

See parent ticket for motivation.

So from the previous ticket (#9576) some points for image generation on TW:

  • Get latest qcow2 from TW create_hdd_gnome (there is also create_hdd_gnome_wicked, so we could skip step to switch to wicked)
  • 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

Acceptance criteria

  1. support_server image generation is established for 64bit and aarch64
  2. support_server image generation is trivial in case we need update or image for other architectures
  3. support_server image generation is documented
  4. support_server image provides all functionality for multimachine ssh and vnc remote installations on aarch64

We have already a job which can be reused. https://openqa.suse.de/tests/4635720 and https://openqa.suse.de/tests/4635719 (The fail is probably some messed up with the repo in that specific build in the last job).
All the requirements for the support_server have been addressed in a automation manner[0] now and it should not require any extra tweaks. In case that something specific needs to be done for openSUSE we could modify the tests/support_server/configure.pm. We have also documentation in place https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/blob/master/how_to_create_a_support_server.md

Single image works well for both ssh and vnc: https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/1440739# https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/1440741

So making those test work properly in remaining tickets of the epic.
