Can anyone help me with providing some links to open source / free virtual machine software, that can be configured from command-line only. I have tried XEN from novell, but it requires a GUI, which is kind of odd. I need it to be able to run on a dedicated server, so I am reluctant to installing the xserver there.
vmware seems to have a web-interface for the server, so it looks promising, I will try it.
You can also install the vmware-server on one machine, and then install the vmware-server-client on your workstation that has a gui and use it to access and manage the virtual machines remotely. and yes theres always the web client as well.
It's like the old days of Anti-Virus and web browsers... you give away the basic version people get used to it, then when it comes time to buy a more advanced version fo the corporation people are more likely to recommend something they have used.. at least that's my take on it.
