Any interest in automated install of VB into a zone?

Postby martyscholes » 23. Jan 2017, 23:46


I am nearing completion of a set of scripts to install Ubuntu into VB, itself installed into a zone. The reason is that I am researching container environments and need the ability to stamp out Ubuntu server hosts on command. So far I have scripted the creation of the zone and the installation of VirtualBox as well as phpVirtualBox for connecting to it. An entire zone with VB can be created in about 6 minutes, complete with registering the hostname with the DHCP server so that the zone can be referenced via DNS.

Most of the work is from and I merely automated it.

If you have any interest in the scripts, let me know and I will post them.
