Of course. Right now I just got enough information to start the modification on the script which I start tomorrow. In fact, all that is needed to get usbnics working properly in xapi is simply being able to identify usb locations. THAT'S IT! All NICs if you look in the logs are initially named side then because the rename script runs and after properly identifying it assigns a ethxx name which the api will work with. All this would take is an import command and a few if commands. I got the logic down so now it is just about editing, trial and error.
import sys, logging from optparse import OptionParser, OptionGroup from os.path import join as joinpath, normpath, exists as pathexists from subprocess import Popen try: import cStringIO as StringIO except ImportError: import StringIO import xcp.logger as LOG from xcp.pci import PCI from xcp.net.biosdevname import all_devices_all_names from xcp.net.ip import ip_link_set_name from xcp.net.ifrename.logic import rename from xcp.net.ifrename.macpci import MACPCI from xcp.net.ifrename.static import StaticRules from xcp.net.ifrename.dynamic import DynamicRules from xcp.net.ifrename.util import niceformat from xcp.net.mac import MAC
for the import command as my google fu was no help for the above xcp.net and xcp.pci what is it specifically referring to?
What I have that down we simply need to add and import for usb then modify a few existing calls with the first being if device location = usb format then run the modify version of the script that would have the edited fields to pull the proper usb locations etc. For the vendor and device it would be best and most simple if we refer to the usbvidpid list it can simply call the info from an already large existing database which can also be easily updated and/or modified for an entry. Functionality wise all that is needed is those if commands to make a usb location referable. Then any usb NIC (so long as drivers provided) would be truly plug and play and we could use the existing config to chose a specific ethxx name based on MAC so they survive reboots without further editing anything.
Got it is referring to the python libary / libs
