Introduction

We'll Install Ubuntu in vm-bhyve.

Prerequisites

Properly configured vm-bhyve running on FreeBSD. All commands below run as root.

Fetch image

Fetch the | Cloud Init image:

vm img http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/bionic/current/bionic-server-cloudimg-amd64.img

Create VM

vm create -c 4 -m 8G -t linux-zvol -i bionic-server-cloudimg-amd64.img -C -k ~aram/.ssh/id_rsa.pub ubuntu

Adjust the number of CPUs and memory to taste.

Start the VM

vm start ubuntu

Log-in

Determine the IP and log-in:

ssh ubuntu@192.168.0.27

Sadly vm-bhyve doesn't have any way of querying the IP, you need to search the DHCP logs or use ARP.

Complete the installation by following the Ubuntu Linux Post Install Steps.

Enable autostart

Make sure the VM is listed in vm_list in /etc/rc.conf.

vm_list="ubuntu vm1 vm2 ..."
