RE: [Fedora-xen] : "Guest Install Error" while creating a paravirtualized guest with virt manager on FC6

As a suggestion, don’t move the file but rather link it (# ln –s /etc/xen/fc6guest /etc/xen/auto/fc6guest )


IIRC, the default path for xm to be looking for the config file of a guest is in /etc/xen and by moving the file to ./auto you’ll have to specify the path whenever manually starting the domU (i.e. # xm create /etc/xen/auto/fc6guest in stead of # xm create fc6guest). Naturally, the problem w/having two copies of the file speaks for itself…

if you have created the domain with virt-manager, look in /etc/xen/ to see what the name of the config file is.  if you called it "guestFC6" for instance, To restart that domain in the future, you can just type 'xm create guestFC6'

To make it start automatically on system reboot, move that file into /etc/xen/auto/

  1) Ok, I did succeed with an alternate web site; and the process was
finished ok.
Then I close the virt-manager;
xm list shows now only domain 0.

How can I now restart that guest domain  ?
Resatring the virt-manager does not restart it , as xm list shows.
(let's assume that the file where the guest
domain was created is /home/ian/xenGuest)

2) Regarding Ian Patton remark - I meant para virtualized and not
fully virtualized guest; it was a miskate from me to talk about fully
virtualized guest,sorry.
