Setting up a virtual machine host

Initial setup

Follow the Gentoo installation guide, then install Salt. Specify the host role in /etc/salt/grains:

role: vmserver

Restart the salt-minion service, then run salt-call state.highstate to pull in VM server packages and initial configuration.

Access to the storage array

Start the iscsid service (it is not automatically started by Salt). After this, you may need to restart the multipath service and the libvirt service. You should then be able to use the virsh tool and create virtual machines.
