Managing Virtual Machines graphically with `virt-manager`
Start the GUI Virtual Machine Manager by selecting it from the "Applications-->System Tools" menue, or by running the following command:
If you are not root, you will be prompted to enter the root password. ChooseRun unprivileged to operate in a read-only non-root mode.
- Choose "Local Xen Host" and click "Connect" in the "Open Connection" dialog window.
- The list of virtual machines is displayed in the main window. The first machine is called "Domain 0"; this is the host computer.
If a machine is not listed, it is probably not running. To start up a machine select "File-->Restore a saved machine..." and select the file that serves as the guest's disk.
- The display lists the status, CPU and memory usage for each machine. Additional statistics can be selected under the "View" menu.
- Double click the name of a machine to open the virtual console.
From the virtual console, select "View-->Details" to access the machine's properties and change its hardware configuration
To access the serial console (if there is a problem with the graphical console) select "View-->Serial Console"
