Part 12: Glassfish V3 Pet Catalog sample DEMO in VM Template - Clean and Convert

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype was designed as PURE CLI enviroment providing main building stone for creation of Virtual Appliances or VM Templates

In this example I will DEMOnstrate creation of Evaluation type Virtual Appliance / VM Template which will leveradge OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS prototype and just in Dec/09 released Glassfish v3, Java EE 6 and Netbeans 6.8 with simple Java EE 6 demo. This entry is part of Virtual Appliances & OVF workshop.

New Glassfish V3 introduce an unique network repository based modular structure, so we can more easily create really simple initial DEMO setup which user can extend by installation more samples right from Glassfish V3 repository or from Netbeans GUI.


Step 6: Clean and Convert VM
   Step 6c: Generate VirtualBOX 3.x VDI IDE format
      Convert VMDK SCSI to VDI IDE format with VirtualBox
      Configure VirtualBox for VDI IDE
      Reconfigure HW with VA Live-CD in VirtualBox?for VDI IDE
   Step 6d: Generate Parallels format       Open in Parallels JeOS image and recreate OS disk
      Restore from ZFS stream from VA Live-CD
      Add Freeware NI network driver
   Step 6e: Generate xVM/XEN compatible PARA and HVM RAW disk formats

Can anybody try it on Parallels Desktop 3 for MAC.

PS: You will probaly not able to import VM directly, because old versions have only Solaris/Other option, not Solaris/OpenSolaris, so you can try to recreate VM and use just disks in new XML formats.

Security related Enhancements in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for evaluating security related install & config OS enhancements .

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is Hardened Installation

The process by which the JeOS image is built now follows certain recommendations from the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The JeOS image build process uses the portion of theImmutable Service Containers (ISC) project's tools applicable to a global zone to implement some of the recommendations outlined in the document OpenSolaris Security Hardening.

See also Glenn Brunette's Security Weblog

This ISC framework features was applied during JeOS post-configuration:

  • Security hardening of the operating system (based upon the OpenSolaris Security Hardening project)
  • Non-executable stack functionality enabled (on systems supporting this functionality)
  • Encrypted swap enabled
  • Encrypted scratch space - default size is 100 Mbytes (customize as needed)
  • Kernel-level auditing enabled
  • Default policy audits login/logouts, administrative events, and all commands executed on the system
  • Audit syslog plugin configured (/var/log/auditlog)

NAS storage server in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for experimenting with system features like ZFS and SERVER network storage protocols like (CIFS, NFS,iSCSI).

In this example I will demonstrate a creation of simple STORAGE multi-protocol NAS using ZFS and network storage protocols (CIFS, NFS, iSCSI) integration.

I will also demonstrate some ZFS native features together with storage oriented ones.
