action #68708

Updated by riafarov over 1 year ago

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

See parent ticket for motivation.

Some hints for SLES image generation:
https://gitlab.suse.de/hsehic/qa-css-docs/blob/master/openqa/README.md#creating-a-supportserver-image

64bit jobs using support server: https://openqa.suse.de/tests/4428137 and https://openqa.suse.de/tests/4428135

## Acceptance criteria
1. support_server image generation is trivial in case we need update or image for other architectures
2. support_server image provides all functionality for multimachine ssh and vnc remote installations on aarch64

## Hints
So from the previous ticket (#9576) some points for image generation on TW:
* Get latest qcow2 from TW/SLES 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
