If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule [on Fedocal] and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Virtualization in Fedora 21. Test cases will basic virtualization workflow, some cool functionality, as well as new features introduced in Fedora 21.

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available for testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion.

Known issues

None so far

What's needed to test

For starters, your physical machine should have:

  • Hardware virtualization support (e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V) (see Is My Guest Using KVM?).
  • Up to 10-20Gb free disk space. Guest images take up a lot of space.
  • Get the packages with: yum groupinstall virtualization

As for getting the latest virt packages, you have a few options:


Fedora 21 on a physical machine

The preferred testing platform is a fully updated Fedora 21 machine. You have a few options for getting the Fedora 21 bits:

Install with CD/DVD

You can download the Fedora 21 Alpha in various formats here.

Upgrade from Fedora 20

Run Fedora 21 in a VM with nested virtualization

Do you have a new machine with a ton of ram and storage space, running Fedora 21? Nested virt might be an option! This allows you to create KVM guests inside a Fedora 21 VM.

Use the virt-preview instructions below, install a guest using one of the install test cases, and follow the nested virt test case to finish the setup and verify things are working correctly.

Fedora 21 virt packages on Fedora 20

If you aren't ready to make the jump to Fedora 21, this is the next best thing! Run latest virt packages on Fedora 20 from the virt-preview repo:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Virtualization_Preview_Repository

Areas to test

All these tests have an entry in the Test Results table, please record them there.

VM Install

If you don't already have a VM available, run through one of these test cases. A fully functioning VM is required for every other test case!

Standard features

These are recurring tests of standard virt features, they ensure nothing obvious is broken.


Extra tests

These tests aren't listed in the 'test results' table, but consider giving them a spin and reporting any issues on IRC or bugzilla.

OpenVZ

libguestfs and tools

You will need Fedora 21 (host) and at least one guest (but the more the merrier).

Install libguestfs: # yum install '*guestf*'

and run through the tests here: http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-testing.1.html

Previous test cases

Some test cases used in previous test days. Still useful to test for regressions!
