  • Thread-topic: Remotely starting a VM

This may be a rather naïve question but up until now I have been controlling 
Xen VMs on a local basis only.  On my Debian system I log in to Dom0 I use the 
'xl create <config>' command to start my VMs and then use VNC to connect to 
them from my Windows box.

I want to do a little more with Xen.  What would I need for the following 
fictional scenario;

Let's say that I want each member of my family to have a VM.  Obviously they 
don't have direct access to Dom0 on my Debian system (and I don't think it 
appropriate to give it to them) to use the 'xl create <config>' command.

How do they start and connect to their VM from a remote system?

Does Xen have something natively installed or do I need to install something 
like XCP-XAPI or XenServer.  I want to do this for some simple basic 
experimentation and I am looking for a simple solution.  I don't need anything 
elaborate or complicated.

I am using Xen 4.2 with Debian 3.4.9 in Dom0.  I have a high desire (for 
complicated reasons) to stay with this version but I could upgrade only if 
absolutely necessary.
