We are in the process of switching over from xen to kvm machines… with xen machines you can use ‘xm console somevm’ to attach directly to a vm’s console (as opposed to attaching via ssh). How do you attach directly to kvm machines created by cloudmin?
I have looked at virsh ‘virsh list --all’ gives me an empty list even though there are several kvm machines running on this host. So I suppose virsh can’t connect to these? Maybe there is some configuration I should check?
I also looked at the ‘cloudmin shell-system --host somevm’, which works, but only if ssh is working. Also, cloudmin is only installed on one of the hosts. I need to be able to attach directly from arbitrary host to any of the vms on that host.
I would like to be able to stop/start/access console/reboot a vm directly so that if ssh is broken, or if the cloudmin machine is down, i can still have access to the vms. The host systems are all CentOS 7 64 bit.
