Status as of 2017-11-24: The apps is complete. Next step is to ask both ClearOS and Kimchi communities to test extensively.
Your server must support virtualization. You will see a warning if this is not the case.
- Install a ClearOS system
- Register the ClearOS system (to configure the CentOS/EPEL repos properly)
yum install app-kimchi
- Open up firewall port TCP / 8001 at ClearOS -> Firewall -> Incoming Firewall -> Allowed Incoming Connections (https://example.org:81/app/incoming_firewall)
- Reboot your server
- Visit Server -> Virtualization -> Kimchi in the ClearOS admin panel ( or directly https://example:81/app/kimchi )
- Make sure Kimchi is running
- Follow the link to access the Kimchi Admin Console (https://example.org:8001/)
When you log into the Kimchi/Wok web interface, you might only have the "Wok' and 'Host' tabs, but not the "Virtualization" tab (screenshot:) . This will be the case if the underlying hardware does not support KVM.
- Add a network
- Network Type: "Bridged: Virtual machines are connected through a network bridge"
- Destination: Use a different network interface than the main one used by ClearOS
- ISO templates don't work, so you need to SFTP the ISOs on the server.
- Create a sub-directory of /var/lib/libvirt
- Upload ISO there (or wget them to there)
- Use that path when creating a virtual machine template
