3.2.2 Booting the Guest Domain

The xm tool provides a variety of commands for managing domains. Use the create command to start new domains. Assuming you've created a configuration file myvmconf based around /etc/xen/xmexample2, to start a domain with virtual machine ID 1 you should type:

# xm create -c myvmconf vmid=1

The -c switch causes xm to turn into the domain's console after creation. The vmid=1 sets the vmid variable used in the myvmconf file.

You should see the console boot messages from the new domain appearing in the terminal in which you typed the command, culminating in a login prompt.
