Re: [Xen-users] accessing a file outside VM

I am a newbie to xen and now only learning its working.

Ok, but i would also like to know how to increase the size (memory) alloacted to a virtual machine..

While downloading certain files, my vm is running out of memory.. I want to increase the memory space allocated to my vm..

Such things are controlled by the configuration file for your guest - normally stored in /etc/xen.

Shutdown your guest, alter the memory allocation, start up your guest - it should now have more memory.

There are ways to configure a guest with "on the fly" adjustable memory - this is the "ballooning" you will see referred to in the docs. But for now, just stick to static memory allocations until you get the hang of the basics.
