OpenNode – CentOS based virtualization system

This is an CentOS 5 based bare-metal installer. OpenNode includes KVM and OpenVZ. They offer an management tools but I prefere to use the OpenVZ Web Panel (Link).

I have installed OpenNode onto my HP Proliant ML115 G5. This was really easy as a normal CentOS installation.

After the system finished the setup I used the internal console to download an Ubuntu 10.04 template. With this template I created an new virtual machine and after this I installed the OpenVZ Web Panel on it. Next step was to install the hw-daemon of the OpenVz web panel onto the OpenNode machine. There was an small config file called hw-daemon.ini, I just entered the IP, Auth Key and started the daemon.
For an automated start I created an simple init script with just start and stop functionality. I used the chkconfig tool to add the init script to all necessary runlevels.
