Trishna Guha: Automate Building your Own Atomic Host

Project Atomic hosts are built from standard RPM packages which have been composed into filesystem trees using rpm-ostree. This post provides method for automation of Building Atomic host (Creating new trees).

Requirements

Process

Clone the Git repo on your working machine Build-Atomic-Host.

$ git clone https://github.com/trishnaguha/build-atomic-host.git
$ cd build-atomic-host

Create VM from the QCOW2 Image

The following creates VM from QCOW2 Image where username is atomic-user and password is atomic. Here atomic-nodein the instance name.

$ sudo sh create-vm.sh atomic-node /path/to/fedora-atomic25.qcow2
# For example: /var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora-Atomic-25-20170131.0.x86_64.qcow2

Start HTTP Server

The tree is made available via web server. The following playbook creates directory structure, initializes OSTree repository and starts the HTTP server.

$ ansible-playbook httpserver.yml --ask-sudo-pass

Use ip addr to check IP Address of the HTTP server.

Give OSTree a name and add HTTP Server IP Address

Replace the variables given in vars/atomic.yml with OSTree name and HTTP Server IP Address.

For Instance:

# Variables for Atomic host
atomicname: my-atomic
httpserver: 192.168.122.1

Here my-atomic is OSTree name and 192.168.122.1 is HTTP Server IP Address.

Run Main Playbook

The following playbook installs requirements, starts HTTP Server, composes OSTree, performs SSH-setup and rebases on created Tree.

Check IP Address of the Atomic instance

The following command returns the IP Address of the running Atomic instance

$ sudo virsh domifaddr atomic-node

Reboot

Now SSH to the Atomic Host and reboot it so that it can reboot in to the created OSTree:

$ ssh atomic-user@<atomic-hostIP>
$ sudo systemctl reboot

Verify: SSH to the Atomic Host

Wait for 10 minutes, You may want to go for a Coffee now.

$ ssh atomic-user@192.168.122.221
[atomic-user@atomic-node ~]$ sudo rpm-ostree status
State: idle

Now you have the Updated Tree.

Shout-Out for the following folks:

My future post will have customizing packages (includes addition/deletion) for OSTree.
