Motty Cruz, recently reported having issues installing and running FreeBSD on his CloudStack 4.2.1/CentOS 6.5 KVM environment.
My environment is very similar, except that I prefer to run FreeBSD on XenServer instead of KVM. FreeBSD 10 and later versions have XENHVM support possibly making Xen a better platform for FreeBSD.
So does FreeBSD have issues running on Apache CloudStack 4.2.1 and CentOS 6.5 KVM hypervisors?
I used the following ISOs to boot and create FreeBSD templates:
- FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE amd64 minimal ISO from
- FreeBSD 10-RELEASE amd64 minimal ISO from
- FreeBSD 10-RELEASE i386 minimal ISO from
FreeBSD 10-RELEASE (32bit and 64bit) and 9.2-RELEASE (64bit) successfully boots and install from the ISO on a 512MB and 1vCPU offering. The OS Type used was either FreeBSD (32bit) or FreeBSD (64bit) depending on the ISO architecture. While I didn’t explicitly test FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE i386 boot and installation, it should work fine too.
