Xen Project Q&A Forum: First Line Help for Simple Questions
This is your chance to ask questions and provide answers about basic use of the Xen Project software. For debugging problems and for more complex issues, consider using the xen-users mailing list instead. You can find information about xen-users under "HELP | Mailing Lists" in the navigation bar above.
For a while this feature worked fine, then sudenlly stoped working.
Now i can create users butt only as admins. If i want to ad a regular user it works, but then if i want to add privilegies to it, i got a blank page.
What could be wrong?
If you mean the xnCORE software suite mentioned here:
It's a third-party application, not part of Xen Project itself. It appears their website (according to our listing) is gone. Also, references to xncore.com now go to some unrelated site.
You may need to do some Googling to see if that project still exists somewhere.
Accepted Answer0There are a few which offer different features using different tool sets. I'd suggest taking a pass through the Ecosystem Directory on this website to see what is out there.
A few notables:
Xen Orchestra: it uses a web interface based on XAPI. Olivier's team has been working hard over the past year. It is still maturing, but I've heard a lot of praise for what's been accomplished.
XenCenter: part of XenServer, which is now Open Source. XenCenter itself is Windows-based (ugggh...) but it is mature with a large user community. It also leverages XAPI.
ConVirt: Long time Xen Project and KVM manager. The Open Source edition is available:
virt-manager: Available in most Linux distributions, virt-manager uses libvirt. Support for libvirt in Xen Project had been a bit spotty in the past (it was used primarily by the KVM community), but our community has stepped up quite a bit in the past year. Use a recent version and stick to basic Xen Project functions and it should work pretty well. I expect this will get even more attention from the community in the future.
Accepted Answer0Frankly, I don't know. It is likely to vary with the tool.
It is somewhat unlikely that VMs started by other toolkits will be properly detected (e.g., a VM installed using XAPI may not be visible using libvirt). Beyond that, you will probably need to read the docs or try them out to find out how existing VMs are handled.
