B.3. Using KVM Virtualization on ARM Systems
- Install the host system from the bootable image on the Customer Portal.
- After the system is installed, install the virtualization stack on the system by using the following command:
yum install qemu-kvm-ma libvirt libvirt-client virt-install AAVMFMake sure you have the
Optionalchannel enabled for the installation to succeed.
- PXE booting is only supported with the
virtio-net-pcinetwork interface controllers (NICs). In addition, the built-in
VirtioNetDxedriver of the ARM Architecture Virtual Machine Firmware (AAVMF) needs to be used for PXE booting. Note that iPXE option ROMs are not supported.
- Only up to 123 virtual CPUs (vCPUs) can be allocated to a single guest.
