Fedora Core 7 (FC7) Xen/KVM Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Enabling Xen

Once the system is booted into the Xen kernel, check to verify the kernel and that Xen is running:

  • # uname -r
    
    2.6.20-2925.5.fc7xen
    
    
    
    # xm list
    
    Name                              ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State  Time(s)
    
    Domain-0                           0      610     1 r----- 12492.1
    
    
    
    
    

The above output should show that the Xen kernel is loaded and that Domain-0 (the host operating system) is running.

  • /!\ Note that for the default setup, networking for the guest OS (DomU) is bridged. This means that DomU's will get an IP address on the same network as Dom0. If a DHCP server provides addresses, it needs to be configured to give addresses to the guests. Another networking type can be selected by editing /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp
