Re: [virt-tools-list] Add a manually configured XEN



Hi,

thanks a lot. In Centos 5.5 there is no domxml-from-native but I get it working using virsh dumpxml and import.

Thanks!!

Best regards,
Bernhard

Hi Berhard,
could you please try using the syntax like:

virsh domxml-from-native <format> <config>

where <format> is "xen-xm" and config is the path to config file?

Something like running:

virsh domxml-from-native xen-xm vm.cfg

on the machine that's having Xen hypervisor installed and if you have 
multiple hypervisors something like:

virsh -c xen:/// domxml-from-native xen-xm vm.cfg

AFAIK, Xend should be running the time you try to do this. This will 
create the configuration within the libvirt and if 'virsh list --all' 
will be showing the guest, it's perfect and you should be seeing the 
guest in the virt-manager.

Also, if you're having some guest you'd like to copy/clone you can do 
following:

# virsh dumpxml existingGuest > temp.xml
# vim temp.xml (to edit the paths, UUID, name etc.)
# virsh define temp.xml (when it succeeds you can remove temp.xml if you 
want to)

You should be having a new guest based on the config. Also, you may need 
to remove /etc/xen/{NAME} from the system but maybe it's not necessary.

Hope this helps,
Michal

If I start the domU with xm create config then the virtual machine appears in the virt-manager. If I stop the XEN it will disappear. How could I add the XEN to the virt-manager like all the other (with virt-manager) created domU that I have it listed with the virt-manager and could start it from GUI?
