CentOS Virtualization, remote management


Hi guys,
I installed CentOS 5.4 with virtualization option selected. I have ssh enabled on the machine and can access remotely. It is loading a xen kernel. How do I start installing VMs on this machine. What is the management tool to manage it remotely? For windows, theres something called XenCentre but I guess it doesn't work with my setup. It needs the Xen hypervisor installed. I couldn't install the xen server hypervisor because the machine is 32 bit.

Hi,
I couldn't go further with the installation of vms. I'm stuck in "Configure TCP/IP" section. The host do not have DHCP running and entering the IP manually doesn't work. Please advise.

Hi, guys
Could you please tell me how to give configure networking in the guest os during the installation. On the host there are a lot of interfaces like xenbr0, virbr0, vif0, peth0. The vibr0 has 192.168.122.1 IP address assigned to it. The host computer has a public IP assigned to it and I am usng ssh to access remotely. I cannot move forward with the installation because I am not able to configure IP for guest OS during the install. I have no idea on how the guest and host networking works on Xen.

Hi guys,
I managed to move forward with the install. I found out that xen uses bridged network by default so I had to give another public IP to the guest on the same subnet as the host. I am learning a lot.
