This topic describes cloud properties for different resources created by the VirtualBox CPI. VirtualBox CPI works with vSphere ESXI stemcells.

AZs

Currently the CPI does not support any cloud properties for AZs.

Example:

azs:
- name: z1

Networks

Schema for cloud_properties section used by network subnet:

  • name [String, required]: Name of the network. Example: vboxnet0. Default: vboxnet0.
  • type [String, optional]: Type of the network. See VBoxManage modifyvm networking settings for valid values. Example: hostonly. Default: hostonly.

Example of manual network:

networks:
- name: private
  type: manual
  subnets:
  - range:   192.168.50.0/24
    gateway: 192.168.50.1
    dns:     [192.168.50.1]
    cloud_properties:
      name: vboxnet0

VM Types

Schema for cloud_properties section:

  • cpus [Integer, optional]: Number of CPUs. Example: 1. Default: 1.
  • memory [Integer, optional]: RAM in megabytes. Example: 1024. Default: 512.
  • ephemeral_disk [Integer, optional]: Ephemeral disk size in megabytes. Example: 10240. Default: 5000.
  • paravirtprovider [String, optional]: Paravirtual provider type. See VBoxManage modifyvm general settings for valid values. Default: minimal.

Example of a VM type:

vm_types:
- name: default
  cloud_properties:
    cpus: 2
    memory: 2_048
    ephemeral_disk: 4_096
    paravirtprovider: minimal

Disk Types

Currently the CPI does not support any cloud properties for disks.

Example of 10GB disk:

disk_types:
- name: default
  disk_size: 10_240

Global Configuration

The CPI uses individual VirtualBox VMs and disks. Since the CPI can only talk to a single VirtualBox server it can only manage resources on a single machine.

Example of a CPI configuration:

properties:
  host: 192.168.50.1
  username: ubuntu
  private_key: |
    -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    MIIEowIBAAKCAQEAr/c6pUbrq/U+s0dSU+Z6dxrHC7LOGDijv8LYN5cc7alYg+TV
    ...
    fe5h79YLG+gJDqVQyKJm0nDRCVz0IkM7Nhz8j07PNJzWjee/kcvv
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

  agent: {mbus: "https://mbus:mbus-password@0.0.0.0:6868"}

  ntp:
  - 0.pool.ntp.org
  - 1.pool.ntp.org

  blobstore:
    provider: local
    path: /var/vcap/micro_bosh/data/cache

See virtualbox_cpi job for more details.
