Installing KVM Guests With virt-install On Ubuntu 11.04 Server

Filed under

Unlike virt-manager, virt-install is a command line tool that allows you to create KVM guests on a headless server. You may ask yourself: "But I can use vmbuilder to do this, why do I need virt-install?" The difference between virt-install and vmbuilder is that vmbuilder is for creating Ubuntu-based guests, whereas virt-install lets you install all kinds of operating systems (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD) and distributions in a guest, just like virt-manager. This article shows how you can use it on an Ubuntu 11.04 KVM server.

Filed under

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on an Ubuntu 11.04 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM).
