Exalogic Installation Series -12- Scripted Template Generation from an existing vServer

As part of your Exalogic Virtual environment you may want to build vServer that will be used, going forwards, as a template for future vServers. Currently the “Exalogic Elastic Cloud Administrator’s Guide” has an appendix describing how this can be achieved using the OVMM interface. Based on internal A-Team work it is now possible to achieve this directly from a compute nodes command-line without accessing OVMM.

As a result of this I have built the script below that will take the files associated with a “Stopped” vServer and converts them to a template.

For this templating process to work the script will need to be executed on a machine with access to the /OVS/Repositories/* directories and this means running directly on one of the Compute Nodes (I generally run it on Compute Node 1).

Because of the space and resource limitations of the Compute Node (minimal OS) we will need to create a and mount a Share from the internal ZFS to save the working files and ultimately the Template. To this end the script will take a number of parameters that will specification of these directories. If these are not specified the script assumes we have the ZFS /export/common/images mounted on /u01/common/images.

As can been seen from the Usage section below the script only mandates the Name of the vServer to be copied but assumes that the user has stopped the vServer previously. Once the template has been created, or post copy, the vServer can be restarted.

CreateTemplateFromVServer.sh

Usage

usage: ./CreateTemplateFromVServer.sh -n <vServer Name> [-r <Repository Directory>] [-w <Working Directory>] [-d <Destination Directory>]

 -n <vServer Name> vServer to be templatised or cloned.
 -r <Repository Directory> Location of the repository the default is /OVS/Repositories/*
 -w <Working Directory> Working directory where intermediate files will be copied default /u01/common/images/vServerTemplateWIP.
 -d <Destination Directory> Directory where the template tgz will be created. Default is /u01/common/images/vServerTemplates
 -h This information.
