Can I install Cloud Hosted Router (CHR) on XEN server?

Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:30 pm

Hello,
Can I install Cloud Hosted Router on XEN server?
If yes what image should I use?
If not is it planned to be available?
I haven’t found information about this on http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CHR

Thanks,
David Costa

I've had no problems getting CHR to run under Ganeti with Xen as the hypervisor. That's not necessarily the same thing as "Xen Server", but it will run under a Xen dom0. I used a HVM domU, but specified paravirtual NICs and IOEMU for the HDD. I've not yet found a way to get it to run as a paravirtual guest. Here's a relevant config file. Maybe that'll help you? :)
builder = 'hvm'
memory = 1024
maxmem = 1024
vcpus = 2
pae = 1
acpi = 1
viridian = 0
apic = 1
device_model = '/bin/true'
boot = 'cd'
sdl = 0
usb = 1
usbdevice = 'tablet'
vnc = 1
vnclisten = '0.0.0.0'
serial = 'pty'
vif = ['ip=169.254.0.0, mac=aa:00:00:62:22:2a, type=paravirtualized, script=/etc/xen/scripts/vif-ganeti-ovs, bridge=bridgenamegoeshere']
disk = ['phy:/var/run/ganeti/instance-disks/hostname.goes.here:0,hda,w']
on_poweroff = 'preserve'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'

Does live migration work with this setup? I've still issues with XenServer 6.5 and RouterOS 6.38rc52 as described in this post.

We are able to install on xen-server but the disk is read-only so we can not save any settings. Any advice on how to make disk writeable?

Use XenServer 6.5 or newer and it will be OK...
