NAMEadt-virt-xenlvm - autopkgtest virtualisation server using Xen and LVM
SYNOPSYSadt-virt-xenlvm [options] -- [adt-xenlvm options]
DESCRIPTIONadt-virt-xenlvm provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using a Xen virtual machine and LVM snapshots. It adapts the raw functionality provided by the adt-xenlvm-* tools for use by autopkgtest. Normally adt-virt-xenlvm will be invoked by adt-run. adt-virt-xenlvm uses adt-xenlvm-with-testbed and adt-xenlvm-on-testbed. The testbed must have previously been set up with adt-xenlvm-setup. Neither adt-virt-xenlvm nor adt-xenlvm-with-testbed do any locking; it is the the caller's responsibility not to attempt concurrent use of any particular testbed.
OPTIONS--distro=distro Specifies a different distro (ie, the use of a different testbed). --nominum=nominum Specifies a different nominum (ie, the use of a different testbed). --userv Specifies that the adt-xenlvm tools should not be run directly, but rather via userv. The calling user must be permitted to use userv root adt-xenlvm-testbed. In the default configuration, this means being a member of the AdtXenUs group. -- --adt-xenlvm-option=adt-xenlvm-value Following the first occurrence of -- on the adt-virt-xenlvm commandline, any of the values in the adt-xenlvm configuration may be set in the usual way. The arguments are simply passed to adt-virt-xenlvm. See /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest-xenlvm/README.gz for full details of adt-xenlvm. -- -Dvarname=value If --userv was specified, options following the first -- on the adt-virt-xenlvm commandline are passed as option arguments to userv. These should normally be user-defined variable settings using -D which are expected by the autopkgtest-xenlvm/userv- target script. Currently only distro and nominum are expected, and these can be set using adt-virt-xenlvm's own options. -d | --debug Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.
INPUT, OUTPUT AND EXIT STATUSThe behaviour of adt-virt-xenlvm is as described by the AutomatedTesting virtualisation regime specification.
