I am running the latest xen package on Debian Lenny and I want to install a Linux vm with an ISO image.

How best do I make this happen.

I have not been able to get virt-manager to connect to the xen instance on my server from my Laptop.

I would really appreciate the help



Hello Lance,

The easiest way I have found is to loop mount the iso then expose it on my webserver. I then use virt-manager to connect and install with http. That way I am able to install in paravirtual mode rather than HVM.

You can also do the exact same thing from the command line using ssh from your laptop, look at the virt-install man page. I would tcpdump on your laptop and server to see why you are unable to connect.

Hope that helps,
