Re: [virt-tools-list] OpenVz and libvirt (Debian Lenny)

Thanks for the info (I know a client who won't be happy to learn that ... :-)

virt-manager --connect openvz:///system works, vz & kvm vms are listed.
"Run" throws an error but start the vm,
"Pause" failed (with virsh : "error: Failed to suspend domain 101
error: this function is not supported by the hypervisor: virDomainSuspend", I think it's pretty clear)
Reboot, shutdown and force shutdown commands are working.

virt-install and virt-manager haven't been patched to allow openvz VM
creation. However, virt-manager should be able to at least list and start/stop
VMs, though you will need to manually pass the openvz URI to virt-manager
using the --connect option:

virt-manager --connect openvz:///system

If VM listing and start/stop doesn't work, run with the --debug option here
and hopefully it should be easy to fix.
