Re: [Xen-users] rc.local?

Hi there mark - that would really depend on your distro - that's not a function 
of Xen at all as far as I know - the guest boots and what the guest does is the 
guest's business.

Some distro's might use rc.local - others might use run-level changes, or other 
script sets - but what you have to do within a xen guest has always been the 
same as when running the guest os natively from my experience.

Hope that helps.

Subject: [Xen-users] rc.local?

Fairly new to xen.  Working on getting Ubuntu Precise set up on a guest.  I was 
under the impression that using a command line such as

xen-create-image --boot  blah blah

would configure and start the VM, then run /etc/rc.local  but that does not 
seem to be the case.

How does one get a script to run when the new guest is first started, before 
logging in and doing it by hand?  What am I missing?
