What is the reasoning behind disabling xen integration? I'm tempted to open a bug for the missing xen integration, but I assume there is a reason it is excluded. TripleSpeeder (talk) 14:43, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
libvirt-guests does not work with systemd. At least not without modification to the scripts. To enable a guest to auto-start you can either check the "autostart" box in virt-manager, enable autostart through virsh or you can manually create a symlink in the libvirt auto-start directory.
To automatically start a guest named www that runs in qemu
ln -s /etc/libvirt/qemu/www.xml /etc/libvirt/qemu/autostart/www.xml
virt-manager-0.9.4-4 python scripts don't seem to be working. I have been testing them all day.. Including but not limited to a full clean reinstall of Arch 4 times.. I have been getting the error: Building default storage pool failed error. So as a work around I used is below.. This is after the directories are created and root has access to them.
# virsh # pool-destroy default # pool-undefine default # pool-define-as --name default --type dir --target /path/to/default/directory # pool-autostart default # pool-build default # pool-start default # pool-destroy local # pool-undefine local # pool-define-as --name local-iso --type dir --target /path/to/default/local-iso/directory # pool-autostart local-iso # pool-build local-iso # pool-start local-iso # quit $ virt-manager
Last version broke for me. It was a permissions issue that i solved by creating a service account. I am running v1.0.2-1 with qemu.
Create service account for qemu:
# useradd -g kvm -M -N -r qemu
Edit to run under creds: /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf
Also you will need to modify the permissions to the /dev/kvm
# chown root:kvm /dev/kvm
In order to have KVM accelaration after the removal of qemu-kvm I had to edit the config of my virtual machines like this:
<domain type='qemu' xmlns:qemu='http://libvirt.org/schemas/domain/qemu/1.0'> ... <qemu:commandline> <qemu:arg value='-machine'/> <qemu:arg value='accel=kvm'/> </qemu:commandline> </domain>
I don't know if there is some specific field in libvirt XML, but this works for me.
