Libvirt… Again…

March 24th, 2010 jmguilla

In my previous post I haven’t been really honest. I have to confess that I don’t really like Libvirt ( or at least I didn’t ) and virt-manager. For my defense, I used that two projects at their very beginning… and, in my opinion, they lacked many features and weren’t easy to use… And they still… Even if the made many efforts, they keep on being tough to use…

However, Libvirt now enables users to save a secret per volume. We can use that secret to store virtual machines parameters ( such as application  bootstrap environment ) and retrieve them from within the virtual machines. This is not straightforward, it is not planed to be used this way, but it is really useful!
