Setting up VDI software on OpenSolaris & Solaris 11 Express

Although this is supposed to be impossible (according to this guy’s post) I’m game for a laugh!

Initially I just ran

$pfexec vda-install

and it all seemed to work.

So then I followed all the instructions for installing SRSS on an opensolaris machines.

When I ran $vda-config all seemed well until the configuring of SRWC – it just hung – looking at the log created it couldn’t find the files
/usr/sfw/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8
/usr/sfw/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8
this does exist on an opensolaris system with openssl package installed but it’s in the wrong place so quick and dirty fix was
pfexec ln -s /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /usr/sfw/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8
pfexec ln -s  /lib/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/sfw/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8

Great try again……but when I tried to start again the system had got it’s knickers in a twist and I could neither unconfigure or configure! Trying to uninstall gave a cryptic message about container service – in fact this indicates the need for something else – the cacao (common agent container something!).

$pfexec pkg install cacao

Now running $pfexec vda-config seems to work OK – at least it runs all the way to the end! I can even get access to http://sol:1800 to login to the vdi administration interface! Now then all I have to do is login as the root user and…..whoa opensolaris doesn’t have a root user only a root ROLE (WTF).

The solution is to follow this guide – http://dlc.sun.com/osol/docs/content/IPS/login.html

OK now I login to the VDI webadmin using root credentials and start to troll through the settings BUT I haven’t setup the desktop provider yet.

To check the system is running OK I ran through a few check to see if everything is running.
$cacaoadm status
$svcs svc:/application/management/common-agent-container-1:default
$cacaoadm status com.sun.vda..service_module
$svcs svc:/application/database/vdadb:sql
$/opt/SUNWvda/sbin/vda-webadmin status
