Installing KVM+WOK+Kimchi to provide DO Droplet alike in your office.

We just received our refurbished Dell Poweredge R710 . Bought second hand from Australia for our office usage. Yahoo!

We need a lots of staging servers but we only have one physical servers in our small data center located just behind our meeting room.

Got some free time this week to look into it , therefore I manage to spend some on this server. Although it is old but it still good to have it utilize.

First ssh your server, then make sure update and upgrade your server

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Install KVM and all dependencies..

sudo apt-get install qemu qemu-kvm libvirt-bin

Check and verify your kvm installation


system will return the following;

root@ifcontechserver:/home/ifcontech# kvm-ok
INFO: /dev/kvm exists
KVM acceleration can be used


Install Kimchi on your server

sudo apt-get install nginx




and other dependencies

sudo dpkg -i wok-2.5.0-0.noarch.deb

sudo apt-get install -f

sudo service wokd start

sudo dpkg -i ginger-base.noarch.deb

sudo apt-get install -f

sudo service wokd restart

#reboot here
sudo shutdown -r now

sudo dpkg -i kimchi-2.5.0-0.noarch.deb

sudo apt-get install -f

#reboot here
sudo shutdown -r now

#If you have UFW enabled please add the port
sudo ufw allow 8001/tcp

Go to http://IP:8001 for your dashboard.

Set your server to be connected with the same network as physical server by choosing macvtap network type.
