CetOS xen, " xend: command not found"

I am trying to set up a xen virtual environment on CentOS. I have loaded the default current CentOS 5 via HTTP from a net-install cd, with the Virtualization option selected, and I get this:

[root@localhost (username)]# xend status
bash: xend: command not found
[root@localhost (username)]# rpm -qa xen*
[root@localhost (username)]# cd
[root@localhost ~]# pwd
[root@localhost ~]# xend status
bash: xend: command not found
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-128.el5xen #1 SMP Wed Jan 21 11:55:02 EST 2009 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost ~]#

So it looks like I have the correct packages installed, I am running the right kernel, but command not found. I don't see this complaint addressed anywhere in the documentation or on the boards so I imagine that I am missing something obvious. Anyone?

Oh and fwiw I also selected the Server option and both the kde and the Gnome desktop.

On My CentOS5 system xend is located in the following location and comes with the following RPM package:

[root@space1 ~]# which xend
[root@space1 ~]# rpm -qf /usr/sbin/xend
[root@space1 ~]# service xend status
xend is running
Is /usr/sbin/ in your PATH variable?

Hope that helps in some way.

You can ensure you've got it all:

yum -y install kernel-xen xen virt-manager

edit /boot/grub/grub.conf to ensure the xen (capable) kernel is the default.


uname -r

should be similar to



centos, xen
