Smile Xen HVM Dom0 on CentOS 5.6


I have been searching the web for a few hours and have not had any luck finding instructions on how to setup Xen HVM Dom0 on a CentOS 5.6.

I have a test server with a stock install of CentOS 5.6 that support AMD-V.

Thanks in advance.

There's *tons* of links on how to do it with Centos 5.5. Have you tried any of those procedures? Did you run into any specific problems or issues?

Just look at the directions for setting up a Windows HVM on XEN Then follow all the steps up to using a Windows CD or ISO to install it instead use an ISO of CentOS of your install media in the HVM. Here is one and here is another These are for Debian based distributions, but the actual configuration files for the XEN HVM are the same across distros.
