VSphere

OPS works perfectly fine with VSphere ESX 6.7 and 7.0.

It uses the pvsci driver for storage and vmnetx3 for networking.

For most operations you'll want to use the following config and you'll need access to your API key and the access key and secret access key found in your portal:

{
"CloudConfig" :{
"BucketName":"nanos-test"
}
}
package main
import (
"fmt"
"net/http"
)
func main() {
fmt.Println("hello world!")
http.HandleFunc("/", func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
fmt.Fprintf(w, "Welcome to my website!")
})
fs := http.FileServer(http.Dir("static/"))
http.Handle("/static/", http.StripPrefix("/static/", fs))
http.ListenAndServe("0.0.0.0:8080", nil)
}

Image Operations

Create Image

This creates a monolithicFlat image (2 files) and uploads it to vsphere's datastorage.

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
GOOS=linux go build -o gtest
ops image create -c config.json -t vsphere -a gtest

List Images

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
ops image list -t vsphere

Delete Image

Instance Operations

Create Instance

The domain part of the Resource Pool is in this example, 'localhost.localdomain'. You can find that in your portal.

domain
export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
export GOVC_RESOURCE_POOL="/ha-datacenter/host/localhost.localdomain/Resources"
ops instance create -t vsphere -i gtest

Start an Instance

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
ops instance start mytest -t vsphere

List Instances

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
ops instance list -t vsphere

Note: The first time you run this command you might need to have the Guest IP Hack set. OPS will try to set that automatically for you but all existing vms won't report their ips until it is set and will require a new ARP request to be sent. If you already know the ip in question you can simply connect to it or you can reboot the vm and that will generate traffic.

Get Logs for Instance

You can obtain the logs via:

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
ops instance logs -t vsphere gtest

Delete Instance

Right now the delete instance deletes both the instance and the image. We will probably change this in the future to do just the instance.

export GOVC_INSECURE=1
export GOVC_URL="login:[email protected]:port"
export GOVC_RESOURCE_POOL="/ha-datacenter/host/localhost.localdomain/Resources"
ops instance delete -t vsphere named
