You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

Note: This tutorial is only for CentOS 5.+ and maybe work on other versions.

Xen Installation Commands:

1. Install Virtualization
Quote:yum groupinstall Virtualization

2. Edit grub.conf to reflect the correct default Kernel

Quote:nano /etc/grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
PHP Code:
title CentOS 
root (hd0,0)
kernel /xen.gz-3.3.0
/vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
title CentOS 
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.10.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
title CentOS 
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

Reboot the machine for new XEN kernel to take effect

After the reboot check the Kernel to reflect the change
Quote:uname -r
Result: 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5xen
