Re: [Xen-users] [xen4.4] DomU Windows server HVM with xen-tools xl create

'xl console' are for PV domU not for  HVM domU.

To get graphical acces to a HVM dom tt depends if you set up a X server on your dom0 or not  ( X server with KDE, Gnome or whatever you want). There are two cases

1)  No X server on dom0

The VNC commands (= GUI access) should not be used on the dom0 itself but  on a remote PC through your own network.

In a nutshell install a VNC client on a remote PC (not the dom 0). 

If your remote PC is Ubuntu with (a X server installed of course) then install vncviewer. After than on the remote PC

vncviewer hostname_of_your_dom0


vncviewer IP_of_your_dom_0

You should be able to access graphically your new HVM domU.

2) X server on your dom0

Install vncviewer and run the same commands as above

Ok, it is confusing... I will try to clarify.

When following tutorials I managed to run PV DomU guest (successfull
tests with Ubuntu, Debian), but for this moment I did not managed to run
HVM DomU guest (no Windows and no Ubuntu). So in the first time, I
suspected a CPU incompatibility but this is not the case.

So, I can create an Ubuntu HVM DomU, but a simple terminal access, shows
me that is does not work completely.

root@lnj-ubu64:/home/lnj# xl -vvv vncconsole xen-domu-ubuntu
command not implemented
xc: debug: hypercall buffer: total allocations:6 total releases:6
xc: debug: hypercall buffer: current allocations:0 maximum allocations:1
xc: debug: hypercall buffer: cache current size:1
xc: debug: hypercall buffer: cache hits:5 misses:1 toobig:0

I have no 'vncconsole' parameter in xl tool. Wrong version ?
