A collection of tutorials regarding KVM (kernel-virtualized machines) containing information on installation, setup and management of them.
By default Kernel-Based Virtual Machines(KVM) are not set up to access a serial console on the host using virsh. To enable a serial virsh console, so you can view text-based output on the host machine from the virtual machine you will need to make modifications to both the virtual machine and the physical machine. Enabling […]
Virsh is a command line executable to control existing virtual machines. It includes a number of commands to help manage KVM(kernel-based virtual machine) instances. It allows for easy command line management often remotely of virtual machines through SSH access. To enter the command shell over ssh just type the following: virsh From there you can type […]
This article covers creating a new virtual machine with KVM. It is based on CentOS however the majority applies to any OS using KVM. We are going to build a CentOS 7 virtual machine. Virtual Machine CLI Installation: Install wget if you don’t already have it: Part of this requires desktop First grab a CentOS […]
A bridged networking setup is typically used in KVM(Kernel-based virtual machine) to allow the virtual machines to access the LAN/WAN over the IP address on the physical host. This guide is focused on a CentOS or similar derivative configuration setup. This is the second part of a multi-part series in setting up KVM services on […]
KVM(Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization software for linux. You can run multiple virtual server instances under one physical host. This allows you to seperate services and run them on different virtual machines. The link to the project can be found here. Running virtual servers is often used to condense many physical machines into […]
