Recently, I've needed to install many Debian VMs onto XenServers and of
course wanted to automate it. One of my collegues pointed that rather
use existing tools like Cobbler I should take opportunity of working
with world leading XenAPI developers and learnt it by writing some code.
I took that advice and started to write python script. Doing it I found
that XenAPI documentation is ... well ... no ideal. Therefore I spent
some more time on my program and tried to write the code clear and with
as many comments as possible, so other can learn from it and reuse it. I
hoped to write even more documentation (some tutorial) based on my
experiences, unfortunately I haven't had enough time.
Please find short XenDebian.py documentation on our wiki:
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenDebian.py and code on GitHub
Any comments more than welcome.
