I‘m running a KVM virtual machine (FreeBSD 7 and Fedora Linux 13 desktop) under Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.5. However, I’m not getting the remote access via VNC (Virtual Network Computing) to access my Fedora Linux graphical desktop or FreeBSD console. How do I turn on VNC support without reinstalling both operating systems?

There are various ways to start virtual machines at at boot time. This means you don’t have to type virsh start vmName command. This can be done by marking a vm as autostart.

ISCSI is a network protocol standard that allows the use of the SCSI protocol over TCP/IP networks. How do I setup Iscsi Initiator under Ubuntu Linux? How do I format and connect to an iSCSI volume under Ubuntu Linux? How do I store VMware or Virtualbox virtual machine images using iscsi storage?

I‘m using KVM to run multiple virtual machines under Redhat Enterprise Linux server 5.5. I’ve installed FreeBSD 7.x 64 bit as guest operating systems. How do I redirect the FreeBSD version 6, 7 or 8 virtual machine console to a serial port using virsh console command for management purpose from host itself?

Now, you have installed the KVM software and required drivers on the host operating systems. You also configured bridged based networking which will provide direct access to the Internet. It is time to create your first guest operating systems. For demonstration purpose you will install CentOS Linux v5.5 using the Internet using virt-manager GUI tool.
