Fedora Core 6 Xen Virtualization Guide

Building a Fedora Guest System using `virt-manager`

Start the GUI VIrtual Machine Manager by running the following command as root:

  •  # virt-manager

    {i} If Virtual Machine Manager is opened from the Gnome menu under System Tools, rather than from a root command prompt, it will not prompt for the root password and will be limited to read-only access.

  1. Choose "Local Xen Host" and click "Connect" in the "Open Connection" dialog window.

  2. Click the "New" button at the bottom of the virt-manager window, or select File-->New.

  3. A wizard will present the same questions as appear with the virt-install command -line utility (see descriptions above). The wizard assumes that a graphical installation is desired and does not prompt for this option.

  4. On the last page of the wizard there is a "Finish" button. When this is clicked, the guest OS is provisioned. After a few moments a VNC window should appear. Proceed with the installation as normal.
