Virtualization With KVM On A Fedora 17 Server

Filed under
HowTos

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Fedora 17 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

selinux disabled

"I had SELinux disabled on my Fedora 17 system. I didn't test with SELinux on; it might work, but if not, you better switch off SELinux as well"

Part of the reason I do not recommend howtoforge to anyone. It's stupid, sorry to say.
