Description

Currently Linuxkit run command provides only the following options:

[root@ajeetraina ~]# linuxkit run vmware
Please specify the prefix to the image to boot
USAGE: linuxkit run vmware [options] prefix

'prefix' specifies the path to the VM image.

Options:
  -cpus int
        Number of CPUs (default 1)
  -disk string
        Path to disk image to use
  -mem int
        Amount of memory in MB (default 1024)

There is no option available to push the vmdk file to remote ESXi so as to boot up the VM.
Currently we have this feature available only for Google Cloud Engine.

@thebsdbox It would be great to have option like:

$linuxkit push vmware --ESXi address <hostname> -datastore datastore1 vmware.vmdk

to push it to remote ESXi datastore.

Plan is to put ovftool into a container allowing us to:

  • build Open Virt format VMs
  • use the ovftool functionality to push to ESXi or perhaps vCloud AIR.
