CentOS 7.6 to xcp-ng

  • Re: Experimental update of CentOS packages

    Hi there

    As @stormi said in an old topic

    The packages are synced with CentOS 7.5 for now, but CentOS 7.6 has been released so expect another update.

    Well i'm expecting that repo for CentOS 7.6, is it alive ?

    My only choices here are :

    • Install CentOS 7.6 (no 7.5 but 8.0 available)
      • Try something to convert to a dom0 shitty thing
      • Upgrade to last xcp-ng through python script @ http extracted iso
    • Do something at a rescue boot. I saw hertnzer got a "installimage" script..

    edit : forgot to tell you that a i got an online.net box without KVM, just discovered that.
    Got only CentOS 7.6 and 8.0 available (closest to XS/xcp)

  • I'm fucked because I'm in 7.6? 😞

    edit: Well in fact i'm on a 7.7.1908
    yum downgrade centos-release doesn't do anything 😱

    edit: may trying that thing : https://github.com/hetzneronline/installimage

  • Finaly, i'm trying the trick "boot rescue, use qemu and boot xcp-ng iso and install on local drive" and pray for ping on reboot

    (2000 ping, 0% ok right now ^^)

    Hi. Unfortunately, there's no other way than booting from an ISO to install XCP-ng. You can't convert an CentOS into XCP-ng. The disk layout would not be good, and actually "our" OS runs as a Xen domain.
