need externally accessible VM temporarily

Description

Hi,
we need to provide externally accessible VM(with oVirt Hosted Engine env) for localization team QA. Could you please get me a VM with ssh access and port 443 opened? 2 CPUs, 8GB RAM would suffice.
Sooner the better

Thanks,
michal

Due to problems with mail-to-jira interface (that are already solved) copying comments from mail to here:

 

Hi Michal! Sorry for the delay, I didn't see this request the first time you sent it (maybe we have an issue with Jira ticket processing). We've got http://engine-staging.phx.ovirt.org/ that can be used for this purpose. It's not HE but an EngineVMrunning el7. If a proper HE setup is needed with oVirt Master set up on el8 we can provide that by decreasing CI capacity as we'd have to shut down a few VMs. How long is this needed for?

 

Depending on what's needed. For HE we'd need a bare metal and currently those only ship el7 on IBM cloud. If this is only needed for translations we can go with a VM in PHX and for that we'd need to remove 2 worked VMs from Jenkins temporarily - this should provide 24GB RAM which is more than enugh for a basic HE setup IMHO.
Michal, what's the planned duration of this project? Will we need to set up the HE env for you or just provide a "host" and a MAC/IP/FQDN for the engine so that the translation team can set things up?

I also checked the google chat conversation. The duration the machine is needed is few weeks:

hm, Anton, do we have a possibility to get temporraily a large VM (would serve as Hosted Engine) in upstream...so that it's reachable externaly? for localization testing. it would be just for few weeks. is that feasible at all?

yeah, just enough time for the localization team QA.

 

We do need a mster engine on el8. Both are fine, HE or regular deployment of engine in a VM, whatever’s easier.

Host and credentials is good enough. Then maybe just centos8 VM is easy enough. No need for extra resources, 2 vCPUs, 8GB should be a minimum

Few clarifications to speed it up. Only HTTPS access from outside is needed and ssh is needed only from Red Hat network.

could you please deploy an el8 VM on one of the local-storage hosts in PHX for this task? Needs to be on the DMZ VLAN to get an externally reachable IP and the specs Michal provided: 8GB RAM and 2x vCPU.
