NAME

Rex::Box::KVM - Rex/Boxes KVM Module

DESCRIPTION

This is a Rex/Boxes module to use KVM VMs. You need to have libvirt installed.

EXAMPLES

To use this module inside your Rexfile you can use the following commands.

 use Rex::Commands::Box;
 set box => "KVM";
 
 task "prepare_box", sub {
    box {
       my ($box) = @_;
 
       $box->name("mybox");
       $box->url("http://box.rexify.org/box/ubuntu-server-12.10-amd64.kvm.qcow2");
 
       $box->network(1 => {
          name => "default",
       });
 
       $box->auth(
          user => "root",
          password => "box",
       );
 
       $box->setup("setup_task");
    };
 };

If you want to use a YAML file you can use the following template.

 type: KVM
 vms:
    vmone:
       url: http://box.rexify.org/box/ubuntu-server-12.10-amd64.kvm.qcow2
       setup: setup_task

And then you can use it the following way in your Rexfile.

 use Rex::Commands::Box init_file => "file.yml";
 
 task "prepare_vms", sub {
    boxes "init";
 };
