KVM images in Bexar

Asked by Nikolaj Sjujskij on 2011-02-10

Bexar release announcement says that it's now possible to handle KVM images "natively" (or transparently, at least), but docs seem to lag behind and I can't found anything there on the subject.
How should one register Qemu/KVM image for Nova to handle and run instances of it?

You can use euca-bundle-image, euca-upload-bundle and euca-register to add machine images into your object store. Afterwards try running your image with euca-run-instances. If that's not working for you extract the ramdisk and the kernel from the image and add them to the objectstore, too. Set the flags --ramdisk or --kernel to true and afterwards re-add the machine image and use the flags --ramdisk ID-RAMDISK and --kernel ID-KERNEL. If have not tried the first way, the second one is working for me.
