Re: VirtualBox headless

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi,

thanks for your hint.

I read the lines in the documentation, but unfortunately editing the xml
within virsh lead to the errors.

The Solution to a headless domain was to edit the XML file from bash and
then

#virsh: define <domainname.xml>

to reload the new values for the graphics type of the machine.

Obvioulsy something went wrong when editing "live"....

Regards,
Christian
