What is Archipel

Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all.

How To Install Archipel on Ubuntu

0. Set hostname

hostname icloud.blackonsole.org
echo icloud.blackonsole.org > /etc/hostname

1. install dependencies

echo "deb https://apt.jabber.at trusty ejabberd" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jabber.at.list
wget -qO- https://apt.jabber.at/gpg-key | apt-key add -
apt-get update
apt-get install -y git ejabberd build-essential qemu-kvm libvirt-bin libvirt-dev python-setuptools python-numpy python-imaging python-apscheduler python-sqlalchemy python-libvirt subversion python-dev

2. Config eJabberd

vim /etc/ejabberd/ejabberd.yml

Then restarting eJabberd

/etc/init.d/ejabberd restart

3. Install Archipel Agent

This agent can install in all hypervisor server

cd /usr/local/src
git clone https://github.com/ArchipelProject/Archipel.git
cd Archipel
./pull.sh
easy_install apscheduler sqlalchemy numpy
cd ArchipelAgent
./buildAgent -d
archipel-initinstall

4. Register user admin in ejabberd and archipel

ejabberdctl register admin icloud.blackonsole.org 4dMinPassWD
archipel-tagnode -j [email protected] -p 4dMinPassWD --create
archipel-rolesnode -j [email protected] -p 4dMinPassWD --create
archipel-adminaccounts -j [email protected] -p 4dMinPassWD --create

5. Config Archipel-Agent

vim /etc/archipel/archipel.conf

Config some like this:

Restarting Archipel

/etc/init.d/archipel restart

6. Add iso files to Archipel

mkdir /vm/iso/
chmod 777 /vm/iso
cd /vm/iso
wget //de.releases.ubuntu.com/14.04.3/ubuntu-14.04.3-server-amd64.iso

7. Install Archipel Client

This can install in local or where you will access the Archipel

wget //nightlies.archipelproject.org/latest-archipel-client.tar.gz
tar -xzf latest-archipel-client.tar.gz
cd Archipel/
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Play with Archipel Client

Open //localhost:8000 in web browser.

  • 0. Log in with admin@ user in installation
  • 1. Add contact and then add [email protected]
  • 2. Create VM in Archipel VMs
  • 3. Configure hdd, cdrom, Nic for VM
  • 4. Run the VM
