RE: [Ovirt-devel] iSCSI questions and VM Creation questions

Hi, quick update on that answer
I tried to use the "iso boot" functionality of cobbler/ovirt.
I've created an image like here https://fedorahosted.org/cobbler/wiki/KoanWithIsos with the difference that you must not but the ":" between the server name and the path:
cobbler image add --name=ubuntu --file=nfs://nas.open.net/mnt/nas/share/share/ubuntu-9.04-server-amd64.iso
Now I can view it from oVirt. But when I boot, I have this issue:
	Unable to find volume attached to pool nas.open.net-_mnt_nas_share_share.

If I do virsh pool-list, I have the following lines:

	Name                 State      Autostart
	nas.open.net-_mnt_nas_share_share active     no
	nas.open.net-iqn.2006-01.com.openfiler:tsn.9a2bd39f003e-3260 active     no

Any ideas on where is the problem?

I've seen it pass on the last update (perhaps It wasn't necessary to turn selinux off)

You will just need to put your ISO in a shared storage volume that the nodes can mount; cobbler will supply the node with the path to the ISO on shared  storage, and it will then boot the VM from there.

Ok, I'll take a deeper look at cobbler (I've read that it was impossible to do that with cobbler but it was perhaps an old version).
