Re: [Libguestfs] virt-edit Guestname /boot/grub/grub.conf error

Ok thanks. What is the alternate method to achieve this? Use Qemu Manager or Virtmanager?

As the error says, this can't be done.  You can't use virt-edit on
live virtual machines.


Richard Jones, Virtualization Group, Red Hat http://people.redhat.com/~rjones
converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into KVM guests.
