this week i started with KVM Virtualisation. My Goal is to migrate our VMs from Xen to KVM but yet iam far away from that.
I get stucked with some elementary… i successfully started a domain with virt-install, i used this command
virt-install --accelerate --hvm --connect qemu:///system \ --network network:default \ --name fed12 --ram=756\ --file=/opt/kvm/fedora12.img \ --file-size=6 --vnc --cdrom=/dev/sr0
it says “successfully started… u can reconnect via console to blah blah”
but i was not able to get video access to the machine. however, iam running kvm on an redhat 5.4 server, with no x. i red, that kvm starts an vnc server on port 5900 (or higher) when starting a vm. this seems right but when i look with ‘netstat -aln’ it shows me, that port 5900 is only listening on lo (127.0.0.1).
i tried to access from my workstation (via vncviewer or telnet) to the server, but as expected it does not respond.
i was not able to find an setting to map the vnc server to eth0 or similar.
maybe i misunterstood something, i would appreciate any help.
