Re: [libvirt-users] Host does not support virtualization type 'xen'



The issue hasn't been eliminated. Here is the running script:

[root XenTester su]# virt-install -p -c xen:///
ERROR    Host does not support virtualization type 'xen'
[root XenTester su]# virsh uri
xen:///

[root XenTester su]#

Any other possibilities?

Good.  The next step is determining which hypervisor you are connecting
to by default:

virsh uri

If that isn't right (for example, if it returns qemu:///system), then
you need to modify how you are calling virt-install to pass an explicit
URI (or set LIBVIRT_DEFAULT_URI in your environment).  Try 'virt-install
-c xen:///' to force libvirt to talk to the xen hypervisor.
http://libvirt.org/uri.html gives more details on setting a URI.
