OK, I’m using (or trying to use) Xen on FC6, everything completely bog standard. I’m obviously really missing something because I’ve been going nowhere.
I can fire up the vm manager GUI, configure a new vm, drop FC6 on it (and obviously see the domain-0), both the Xen demons are running. However, after the vm tries to reboot during the install, it *disappears* from the vm manager, and try as I might I can’t find a way to restart the vm.
So then I tried saving the sate of the vm before rebooting it, using the “save” menu item, which I presume squirts some kind of state image to disk. However, I can’t get on the console of a saved and restored machine using the virtual machine manager, I just get a message saying “The console is currently unavailable” despite the fact that the vm manger quite happily says the vm is running.
Also, the vm manager *deletes* the state image without offering you the opportunity to preserve it as soon as you “restore” it!
I think the menu terminology used for this user interface is not very well thought out really. Perhaps “Irretrievably Break” would be a better label than “Restore” on the menu for this item?
Anyway, I’m sure it’s all good stuff, I just need to find out how to make it work before chucking the computer off my fifth floor balcony.
Any advice gratefully received….
