Re: [Xen-users] XPC: Where to start?

If you're interested in the actual process and you don't want to run my Xen Cloud Control System, grab a copy of it and look at the centos.cgi script for a complete and fairly well commented process for creating a new VM.

I'm actually no stranger to virtualization, but XCP is just stumping me.

I've been logged in as root... tried xe... I've used the xsconsole...
I've used the XenAPI viewer... but nothing seems to get me what I
actually need.

I've read the documentation, and it tells me a great deal about Xen and
XCP, but not what I need to actually do to get a VM running and installable.

Can someone give me the basic shell commands I need to initialize a
sample VM to the point where I can VNC to it from another server and
install an OS. In this case, I happen to be install Vista. Otherwise,
could someone point me to a "Getting started guide" for the impatient?
I'm running 0.5.

Or have I completely missed the preferred method for controlling XCP? It
seems I can't run OpenXenManager, since it requires Ubuntu or Debian.

Thanks in advance.
