Managing Multiple KVM Hosts With Enomalism2 [Ubuntu 8.10]

[ Thanks to Falko Timme for this link. ]

"1 Preliminary Note

I'm using two Ubuntu 8.10 servers here as my KVM hosts:

server1.example.com: IP address 192.168.0.100
server2.example.com: IP address 192.168.0.101

The servers are located in a private network with a DHCP server (on the router, IP 192.168.0.1). Enomalism usage might be different if you use it in a public network. I'm running all the steps in this tutorial with root privileges, so make sure you're logged in as root:

sudo su

"Please check if your CPU supports hardware virtualization - if this is the case, the command egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo should display something, e.g. like this:

root@server1:~# egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ht syscall nx mmxext
fxsr_opt rdtscp lm 3dnowext 3dnow rep_good nopl pni cx16 lahf_lm cmp_legacy svm extapic cr8_legacy 3dnowprefetch
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ht syscall nx mmxext
fxsr_opt rdtscp lm 3dnowext 3dnow rep_good nopl pni cx16 lahf_lm cmp_legacy svm extapic cr8_legacy 3dnowprefetch root@server1:~#

"If nothing is displayed, then your processor doesn't support hardware virtualization, and you must stop here."
