Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

= Xen Tools support This cookbook is designed to allow provisioning VMs by adding new data bag items in the virtual_machines data bag. Currently it only supports bootstrapping using xen-tools, from a tarball or directory. Patches to use debootstrap and similar would be welcome. == Creating a new VM Add the Xen recipe to your Dom0, and set the default_vm attributes to taste. You'll also need to take an image of an existing VM. Mount it's disk at somewhere, and then run `tar cvzf my-vm-image.tgz .` and move the created file somewhere more permanent. Set xen/default_vm/install_source to that path. Now you can create a new data bag item in a virtual_machines databag: { "id": "testvm" } That's the bare minimum. The VM will be called testvm.domain. It'll be created, and then started using xm create. Any options in xen/default_vm can be overridden from the data bag for a VM: { "id": "bigtestvm", "size": "100G", "memory": "1G", "install_source": "/media/images/web-server.tgz" } == Using Chef to manage your new VMs By creating an image with Chef configured you can make things completely automated. Add a data bag item. Wait a little while. Start using Chef to manage your VM. You'll need to create a base VM image, with Chef installed. Copy your validation key over to /etc/chef/, and make sure the client is set to hit your Chef server. Now when it boots up for the first time, it'll register with Chef.
