Setup Base OS

I used hetzner's "installimage" to create RAID + LVM.

installimage
-> Debian
-> Debian-86-jessie-64-minimal
-> Hostname enterservername
-> PART /boot  ext3     512M
-> PART lvm    vg0       all
-> LV vg0   root   /        ext4         10G
-> LV vg0   swap   swap     swap          4G

reboot

Sanity checks

free
lvscan
cat /proc/mdstat
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
mdadm --examine --scan
df -h
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Some strange reason apt didn't work with ipv6 after the initial update. So to force apt to use ipv4

vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99hetzner
#add in the line
Acquire::ForceIPv4 "true";

Install KVM

aptitude install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin
