kvmadm 0.12.3

Manage KVM instances under SMF control

Build Status Coverage Status

kvmadm takes care of setting up kvm instances on illumos derived operating systems with SMF support. The kvm hosts run under smf control. Each host will show up as a separate SMF service instance. kvmadm supports KVM instances set-up as SMF service instance within individual zones.


kvmadm uses only core perl, so it should install out of the box on any machine with a current perl installation. It is advised to install kvmadm into a separate directory as the base directory of kvmadm will be mounted in the zones.

tar zxvf kvmadm-0.12.3.tar.gz
cd kvmadm-0.12.3
./configure --prefix=/opt/kvmadm-0.12.3 

Now you can run

gmake install

You can import make configure install a kvmadm service manifest by calling configure with the option --enable-svcinstall=/var/svc/manifest/site.

Check the man page for information about how to use kvmadm.
