XO Hub Template: what do you want next?

So far we got 4 templates available:
- Debian 10 cloudinit ready/disk growable/DHCP
- CentOS 8 cloudinit ready/disk growable/DHCP
- PfSense 2.4
- Alpine Linux 3.10
Would you like other OS? Or even apps installed in those OS? Let us know!
@olivierlambert Awesome first start (pfSense ), love the idea! Where is Ubuntu?
Also I saw Alpine and the first thought that jumped to mind was a template for a vRouter. A lot of multi-tenant cloud platforms like Opennebula, CloudStack, etc offer virtual router images in their respective stores/hubs.
This use case pairs well with the introduction of the SDN controller and private networks. The vRouter template can be configured with 2 or more vifs. One vif to the WAN and the other vif to a SDN private network as the LAN. The vRouter can be the gateway device for the SDN private network routing traffic to the Internet or other external networks outside of the private network supporting NAT, ACLs, VPN, Load balancing, etc.
Some of these features would require more advanced integration with cloud-init like being able to provision IPs from the XO/XOA IP Pool to VMs. The pfSense template can be used to achieve the vRouter functionality as well but at a large disk footprint.
I have no specific use case for it right now but something to consider.
Ubuntu will come soon Thx for the feedback!
GNS3 Server - (qemu and dymaips I think)

Sorry, never heard of this. Do you have a link?
Its a networking simulator
I used this script to create one in a Ubuntu VM. (Without the vpn)
Do you know http://www.eve-ng.net/?
It is also an amazing network simulator.
Is it possible with Clear Linux * Project?
It has a low latency kernel and is extremely optimized for Intel processors. Unsurprisingly, it's Intel's open-source team that develops.
It may be interesting, once it is officially released (there are still some parts in development), also have Fedora CoreOS (I don't know if there will be a CentOS CoreOS)
Probably a dumb question, but what is the user/pw for the Debian vm created with with the template, or how do I set it?
Noted for CoreOS and ClearLinux (I'm not sure Clear got Xen drivers bundled but I'll take a look)
@HeMaN you need to use CloudInit capabilities, there's no passwd (user is
Hi @olivierlambert, could you help me?
This is my config:
#cloud-config hostname: netconf #ssh_authorized_keys: # - ssh-rsa <myKey> #packages: # - htop users: - default - name: foobar gecos: Foo B. Bar primary_group: foobar groups: users selinux_user: staff_u ssh_import_id: foobar lock_passwd: false passwd: $6$eRE.alHl$1H0K9A4y66DM/aiQ9/9uUK2t3B89l/vidV47MQYVSNaWC1jFjJQRN72w3wSOmzz31X0R/ugr5pyhnkJ24NyCg/ #123
With or without it, I cant login in the console vm, the net config also doesn't work.
During the process I receive the message that could be the answer:
Have you seen this problem?
I have try the default config, but the user 'debain' with no password can't login too.
Thanks this is a greate tool!
Do you have DHCP enabled on this network?

Its probably as @olivierlambert is indicating. I have some custom templates that originally were planned to work with static IPs but it was too cumbersome to use as the static IP information had to be passed in the user config settings which made it prone to errors from user input.
Until the cloud-init network config option works...DHCP is the way to go.
OPNsense, Debian 9, Untangle, Ubuntu 16, 19, Windows is possible?
Windows I'm not sure. Distributing Windows templates could be a problem regarding MS EULA.
Hi, pfSense, MikroTik, FreeNas, Bakula, centreon, Nagios, FreePBX...
Where are these templates to download?
Please read carefully the topic title pfSense is already there by the way.
I noticed that the Alpine Linux 3.10 Template from the XO Hub have the parameter platform:viridian=true. Didn't notice any erratic behavior but just thought this could be a oversight.
Probably because it's coming from "Other Media". We'll fix that
I like the Nethserver its based on CentOS and its a nice Groupware. With CentOS i am fiting very often to Install them.
Whats about the BSD unixes ?
Pi-hole would be awesome
