Automated OpenBSD deployment on vmd(8)
Now that I have an OpenBSD server hosted in the Wild and capable of doing virtualization , I’ll migrate all my VM hosted on Synology Virtual Machine Manager. But even if the OpenBSD installer is straight forward, deploying tens of VM takes some time. So I set up an automated environment that provides fast and (nearly) finger-less deployment.
OpenBSD automatic upgrade
OpenBSD 6.5 advertises for an installer improvement: rdsetroot(8) (a build-time tool) is now available for general use. Used in combination with autoinstall.8 , it is now really easy to do automatic upgrades of your OpenBSD instances.
