Re: [virt-tools-list] libguestfs for Windows guests?




Is libguestfs working for Windows guests?

Ccing libguestfs list.
Thanks.

Yes, it works fine on Windows guests.

On RHEL 6 (*only*) you have to install the libguestfs-winsupport
package from RHN.

On Fedora and other distros, Windows guests are supported out of the
box:

  $ virt-inspector -a /dev/vg_pin/WinXP | head
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <operatingsystems>
    <operatingsystem>
      <root>/dev/sda1</root>
      <name>windows</name>
      <arch>i386</arch>
      <distro>windows</distro>
       <product_name>Microsoft Windows XP</product_name>
      <major_version>5</major_version>
      <minor_version>1</minor_version>

Is there any particular problem you're having?

Rich.


H'm.  Well, I'm doing this on Arch Linux, and I don't seem to have a virt-inspector command.  I did set up an area for guestfs successfully in virt-manager, but was not able to figure out how to find it in Windows.  The guest is Windows 7 64-bit, if that makes a difference.
