Problem using virt-manager to create a VM remotely
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Well, not that remote. I'm trying to get it working from my laptop to an ancient workstation behind me I use for testing. I appear to get the connection okay. virt-manager --connect qemu+ssh://root@<host_ip>/system I can click on the entry on the panel that comes up and see facts about the remote machine. I then tried the "Create a new virtual machine" item on the tool bar. Fine so far. I get a nice looking panel for New VM and since this is just an experiment, I call it "test". The correct Connection is showing, ie the host ip (QEMU). I accept the default "Local install media (ISO or CDROM)" and go to the next panel. I take the "Use ISO Image" and then give it the full directory path and name of the iso on the remote machine <host_ip>. I have tried leaving OS Type and version Generic; I have also tried setting them to match the iso (an 11.10 i386 server). When I attempt to go forward, it gives me an error panel, "Error Setting install media location. Checking installer location failed: Could not find media '/KdevArchive1/ubuntu-11.10-server-i386.iso' On the off chance that it was trying to mount the iso from my laptop instead of the test machine, I have also tried pointing to the path of the same iso there as well with no joy. I am finding very little documentation on the GUI mode and none of it seems to give me any indication of what is going wrong. Ideas?
