Initial setup

  • Prepare installation media available at {URL} according to instructions from Installation Guide
  • Optionally install virtualization support in Fedora:
# yum -y install @virtualization
# service libvirtd start
  • To start virtual machine you can use this command:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c Fedora.iso
  • You can destroy virtual machine right after execution of a test case with these commands:
# virsh destroy test-machine101
# virsh undefine --remove-all-storage test-machine101

Installation on bios/firmware RAID

Setup

Important.png
Bare metal required
This can not be run in virtual machine
  1. You need a machine with bios/firmware RAID supported by dmraid or MD. Linux MD driver supports Intel Matrix RAID technology, dmraid supports following products:
    • asr  : Adaptec HostRAID ASR (0,1,10)
    • ddf1  : SNIA DDF1 (0,1,4,5,linear)
    • hpt37x  : Highpoint HPT37X (S,0,1,10,01)
    • hpt45x  : Highpoint HPT45X (S,0,1,10)
    • isw  : Intel Software RAID (0,1,5,01)
    • jmicron : JMicron ATARAID (S,0,1)
    • lsi  : LSI Logic MegaRAID (0,1,10)
    • nvidia  : NVidia RAID (S,0,1,10,5)
    • pdc  : Promise FastTrack (S,0,1,10)
    • sil  : Silicon Image(tm) Medley(tm) (0,1,10)
    • via  : VIA Software RAID (S,0,1,10)
    • dos  : DOS partitions on SW RAIDs
  2. you need multiple hard drives connected to controller supporting RAID setup,
  3. setup arbitary RAID level in your firmware.

Action

  1. Boot the installation media on prepared machine,
  2. finish the installation by choosing default options.

Expected Results

  1. Installation starts up properly,
  2. RAID device is recognized and used,
  3. system is installed without issue, it boots up,
  4. system is installed on RAID and not underlying devices.

Cleanup

N/A

Installation on iSCSI

  1. Run any test case from QA:ISCSI_Installation_Test_plan

Default LVM with encryption

Setup

  1. Run the installation on bare metal or virtual machine.
    • To start virtual machine, run:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c Fedora.iso

Action

  1. In INSTALLATION DESTINATION choose default layout with LVM,
  2. select encryption and put passphrase,
  3. complete the installation.

Expected Results

  1. Default partitioning layout is created,
  2. partitions are encrypted,
  3. installer asks for passphrase,
  4. system requests passphrase during boot,
  5. systems starts without issue with passphrase.

Cleanup

  1. To destroy virtual machine run:
# virsh destroy test-machine101
# virsh undefine --remove-all-storage test-machine101

Reuse /home on LVM

Setup

  • Do an installation with separate /home partition placed on LVM logical volume.
    • To start virtual machine, run:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c Fedora.iso
  • start up installed system, store some data in /home
  • change the boot order to boot up again from installation media,
  • start the installation again.

Action

  1. Select custom partitioning in INSTALLATION DESTINATION,
  2. assign existing home logical volume to /home mount point, do not format partition,
  3. create & assign other required mount points (/, /boot, ...), complete the partitioning,
  4. complete the installation and start up installed system.

Expected Results

  1. Existing home logical volume is visible in installer,
  2. it is possible to assign mount point to this volume,
  3. it is possible to disable formatting,
  4. installation is completed,
  5. systems starts up,
  6. data in /home partition still exist.

Cleanup

  1. To destroy virtual machine run:
# virsh destroy test-machine101
# virsh undefine --remove-all-storage test-machine101

Separate mountpoints

Setup

  1. Run the installation on bare metal or virtual machine.
    • To start virtual machine, run:
# virt-install --accelerate -n test-machine101 -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/test-machine101.img -s 21 -c Fedora.iso

Action

  1. In INSTALLATION DESTINATION choose custom partitioning
  2. Create following layout:
    • create /boot,
    • create /, use encryption for it,
    • create /usr,
    • create /home, use encryption for it,
    • create /var,
    • create swap, use encryption for it,
  3. complete the installation and start the system.

Expected Results

  1. Defined disk layout is created,
  2. installer asks for a passphrase,
  3. installation is completed,
  4. installed systems starts and asks for a passphrase to unlock encrypted disks,
  5. login is possible,
  6. disk layout on installed system is in accordance with installation setup, all filesystems are mounted, swap is enabled.

Cleanup

  1. To destroy virtual machine run:
# virsh destroy test-machine101
# virsh undefine --remove-all-storage test-machine101
