chg-git is the CHG GitLab server (to be shared with EROS). The hostname (and everything else) remains the same. The chg-git.img is a graphical installation, so use virt-manager to access the console.

  • Domain named changed from to (can also be reached at as of November 23rd, 2015.
  • Added ERI user 02/02/2015
  • After blowing away the original Windows Server 2008 R2 installation, the VM was briefly called chg-gitl, but was changed back to chg-git by:

On rain

[root@rain ~]$ cd /var/run/libvirt/qemu
[root@rain qemu]$ virsh dumpxml [domain] > foo.xml

Shut down VM, preferably from within the VM

chgadmin@chg-git:~$ sudo shutdown -h now

back on rain

[root@rain qemu]$ cp foo.xml chg-git.xml
[root@rain qemu]$ vib chg-git.xml     #(change name IN TWO PLACES)
[root@rain qemu]$ virsh undefine chg-gitl
[root@rain qemu]$ cd /var/lib/libvirt/images
[root@rain qemu]$ cp chg-gitl.img chg-git.img
[root@rain qemu]$ cd /var/run/libvirt/qemu
[root@rain qemu]$ virsh define chg-git.xml

Deleted chg-gitl.img once chg-git was confirmed up and running.

  • Originally, chg-git was also going to double as a staging server for EWX, but later (June 2015) Greg Ederer requested a clone of the CentOS chg-ewx system be created instead (chg-ewxtest). chg-ewxtest also lives on ubu, in the same location (/raid).
  • Jenkins updated on June 14, 2016 (see the Jenkins wiki for notes).
  • OS upgraded from Precise Pangolin (12) on June 20th, 2017.
