To obtain the vm server software, follow the following input to your terminal.
Ensure that the system is set up to boot via lan. Start the computer and use this procedure.
*F12 -> System Setup -> Integrated Devices -> Integrated NIC. Restart. *32-bit(i386)-> Debian/i386 Netboot.install Lenny Stable[text] *Setup -> Enter mirror manually -> mirror -> /debian/ *Setup install -> install nothing -> install grub boot loader *Reboot and change the boot priority back to normal.
Log in as root and perform the following to set up our sources for aptitude.
userdel -r vm02 cd/etc/apt rm sources.list wget http://10.80.2.6/files/student/sources.list aptitude update aptitude upgrade
Now we install our client system and tools.
aptitude install openssh-client open ssh-server aptitude install xen-linux-system-2.26.26-2-xen-686 aptitude install xen-tools
Our next step is to configure xen
cd /etc/xen vi xend-config.sxp Find the line (network-script network-bridge) and remove the # to uncomment this line. Find the line (network-script network-dummy) and add a # to commentout this line. Make sure that (vif-script vif-bridge) To quickly find these lines rather than scrolling through hit enter while not in insert mode and use a forward slash(/) and type in what you want to match.
vi /etc/modules set loop maxloop = 255
Now to set up the grub bootloader
cd /boot/grub vi menu.lst~
Scan the file until you locate 4 lines pertaining to xen that do not have a .gz attached to them; remove those lines.
Do this for the 3rd and 4th group of quad lines as well.
On the last line, set up the kernel.
kernel /boot/xen-3.2-1-i386.gz dom0_mem=262144 cd /etc/xen-tools vi xen-tools.conf
Sarch for the line #dir = /home/xen Modify the line to:
dir = /xen
Uncomment install-method = debootstrap
Search for “Disk and Sizing options” and change the following:
size = 2Gb dist = lenny
Uncomment the following lines:
dhcp = 1 passwd = 1 serial_device = hvc0 disk_device = xvda
Modify the output line to read:
output = /xen/conf
Modify the extension line to read:
extension = .cfg
cd / mkdir /xen mkdir /xen/images mkdir /xen/conf mkdir /xen/save
Reboot the system, and the vm server is up and ready to rock.
