Any Linux qcow2 image with SSH and DHCP enabled and no installation needed?


Hi,

I'm trying to install a linux vm server on KVM without the possibility of using any virt-manager / graphical view application.

The normal virsh setup gives no output on console when deploying the image.

Is there a bootable qcow2 image that I could ssh in from the hypervisor and then enable the necessary settings?

Or is there a way of enabling console access without the installation phase on the VM?

BR,
GT

If you're using qemu, I think you could set it up using -chardev to have a serial device. Then you could do a standard serial console installation.

Guess it would be rather easy to build what you want. Places like SuseStudio could let you create and test what you want.
