DESCRIPTION

umlmgr is a tools to start/stop a set User Mode Linux virtuals machines. 

CONFIGURATION

All configurations files are Ini file like.

An ini file is composed of sections, value are setup per section in the form:

    var=value
 

umlmgr

As root, the configuration default configuration file is /etc/umlmgr.cfg.As a standard user it is $HOME/.umlmgr/config.This file is not mandatory as normal user, espcially since most of settingsneed root privilege to be achieve (network related things on the host).

The default location for vm configs is $HOME/.umlmgr.

Example:

    [env]    user=vmuser    [machines]    dir=/vm    [network]    tap=tap0    addr=192.168.0.254    # switch=yes    hub=yes

env section

Envirronement related values to run everythings

    user    the user account vm should be run as

machines section

    dir     the directory where vm configuration files are located

network section

    tap     the tap device to setup    addr    the ip address to setup    switch  if set, will start uml_switch, using tap device if set    hub     make uml_switch acting as a hub
 

each vm

Virtual machines files should be name in from ID.uml. The firstpart of the file name is used as uml identifier (used by uml_mconsole).

Example:

    [env]    kernel=/tmp/usr/bin/kernel-uml-2.6.25    [uml]    ubda=/tmp/mdv    con=pts    eth0=daemon

env section

    kernel      the excutable name to use as kernel    onboot      if set, the machine is started by 'start' function                (otherwise should be start explicitly with 'boot' function)

uml

Each value in this will be passed as argument to the kernel.

Umlmgr will automatically add as argument:

    con0=fd:0,fd:1    con=pts

The first force log output to go to STDIN/STDERR, umlmgr fetch the outputand push it to syslog.

The second one will bind all console to /dev/pts device. This setup make hardto wonder which device has to be used to access to vm console. umlmgr comewith umltty tools to find it.
