I have just inherited a new Ubuntu Jaunty server ( 9.04, of course ),
and need to build a set of virtual guest machines. ( the previous
sysadmin decided that it was too hard for him )
My experience with Xen 3 is helping, and I have been trying to go
through the Ubuntu wiki documentation, but I have a few questions left.
The first has to do with communication. I have been going through the
various pages and man pages, virsh, virt-install, virt-image, and others
that I don't remember just now. In virsh there is the console command,
but it just comes back and says "No console available for virtual
domain." From Xen, I remember being able to start a console from the
command line and watch the guest go through all of its boot messages.
Is there some configuration option that is not defaulted that I need to
set to get access to the console?
I am able to create virtual machines, start them and stop them, but so
far, can't seem to communicate with them.
