Why doesn't my VM show up in virt-manager?
Thanks for the replies.
I attempted to use the virt-manager gui to create a new guest. The
process created the img file the spun its wheels for the rest of the
night. I had to manually kill the virt-manager. I poked around and
found that virt-manager had finished creating the .img file but had
not created the /etc/xen/vigilance config file. So I then copied the
"/etc/xen/xmexample.hvm" that shipped with the xen rpm and modified it
to meet my needs and pointed it to the vigilance.img file that
virt-manager created. I set the boot parameter in the config to boot
from CD and used xm create /etc/xen/vigilance to start it up.
Everything went fine and I installed the guest OS and can run it fine
Why can't virt-manager see it?
