Storage Pools

  • iso - /storage/isos - Boot and install media. Everyone has write permission
  • local - /storage/vms - Virtual drives stored on the local machine.


  • default - NATed network, works fine but won't give you an externally accessible IP or allow for PXE booting
  • bridge - Bridged network br0.

How to:

Create a new VM

  1. Have a login to Lamarr via Ansible
  2. Install virt-manager
  3. Connect to Lamarr with your login. (Requires your key to be there as ID_RSA)
  4. Create a new VM on Lamarr. Use local to store the virtual drives
  5. Set suitable resources
  6. Set network to eth0
  7. Start and have fun
