Applies to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3

Part IV Managing virtual machines with Xen Edit source

23 Setting up a virtual machine host

This section documents how to set up and use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3 as a virtual machine host.

24 Virtual networking

A VM Guest system needs some means to communicate either with other VM Guest systems or with a local network. The network interface to the VM Guest system is made of a split device driver, which means that any virtual Ethernet device has a corresponding network interface in Dom0. This interface is s…

25 Managing a virtualization environment

Apart from using the recommended libvirt library (Part II, “Managing virtual machines with libvirt), you can manage Xen guest domains with the xl tool from the command line.

26 Block devices in Xen

27 Virtualization: configuration options and settings

The documentation in this section, describes advanced management tasks and configuration options that might help technology innovators implement leading-edge virtualization solutions. It is provided as a courtesy and does not imply that all documented options and tasks are supported by Novell, Inc.

28 Administrative tasks

29 XenStore: configuration database shared between domains

This section introduces basic information about XenStore, its role in the Xen environment, the directory structure of files used by XenStore, and the description of XenStore's commands.

30 Xen as a high-availability virtualization host

Setting up two Xen hosts as a failover system has several advantages compared to a setup where every server runs on dedicated hardware.

31 Xen: converting a paravirtual (PV) guest into a fully virtual (FV/HVM) guest

This chapter explains how to convert a Xen paravirtual machine into a Xen fully virtualized machine.
