I also struggled with uploading ISO images. Here's what I finally did. I don't know if it's the most elegant solution, but it works for me.

The way I solved it was to create a new virtual HD to hold the ISOs, then add a symlink inside the /local directory as a mount point, and mount it at boot.

Step 1: Create new HD. I'm using VirtualBoxOSE. I created a virtual HD called "UDA-cd-images.vdi". I added that to my VM. It shows up as /dev/hdb. Then, from the command line of UDA, I used fdisk to create a single big Linux partition and used mkfs to format it as ext3.

Step 2: Create a new directory /images which will be the mount point for the new drive.

Step 3: Edit /etc/fstab. Add a line to the end which causes it to mount the new virtual HD at boot time.

Code: Select all
[root@uda ~]# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/udavg/systemlv     /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
/dev/udavg/locallv      /local                  ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
/dev/udavg/swaplv       swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdb1               /images                 ext3    defaults        1 2

Step 4: Add a symlink to /local which points to the directory with the ISO files. In my case here's how that looks:
Code: Select all
[root@uda local]# ls -lash
total 21K
1.0K drwxr-xr-x  3 apache apache 1.0K Mar  6 22:39 .
8.0K drwxr-xr-x 23 root   root   4.0K Mar 11 15:35 ..
12K drwx------  2 root   root    12K May 15  2009 lost+found
   0 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root   root     12 Mar  6 22:39 t4a -> /images/t4a/

Step 5: Upload the ISO images to the new /images directory (actually the new virtual HD) via FTP, scp, wget, or other mechanism (not the UDA web interface).

Basically, you can use the web adminstration interface :
  • power off the UDA
  • add a new scsi virtual disk
  • power on the UDA, and log in the admin web
  • click System \ Diskspace
  • in the volumes list, select "locallv", then click Extend
  • select the device, then click Apply
