Re: [libvirt] listing domains on Fedora 8 XEN kernel



I have answered my own question.

On an XEN kernel, the default hypervisor is XEN and I did not have any
XEN domains.

If I explicitly connect to QEMU - my programs work fine.

I discovered this fact by running the existing programs with
the connect string:

"qemu://steve-1.verizon.net/system"

I then created an XEN domain and when I reconnected with

 "xen://steve-1.verizon.net/system"

I received the XEN domain information.

I know this bit of information is very familiar to those who
are experienced in the world of virtual machines.  I am passing
the information on for those who are new to this environment.

Thanks

Steve
