I am getting you but now things are messed into my mind. I again describe what I want to do and what is in my mind:
I want to run a couple of linux servers and an instance of windows 2003 server on a virtulised server. I would like to do this using Ubuntu 8.04 server as host for KVM. I would set it up as guided into http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...on-ubuntu-8.10
. but as I want to have guest OS other than ubuntu, I would prefer setting up guests as guided into http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...tu-8.10-server
and management for those guest as per http://www.howtoforge.com/kvm-guest-...on-ubuntu-8.10
Now, please tell me, upto this point, am I going on the right way or need to change anything?
Further, as required to run virt-manager and virt-viewer, there should be ubuntu-desktop running either at any network PC or server running KVM host itself. There is no PC with ubuntu desktop in my network, so I would need it on server itself as guest. My question comes here, how do I setup and run ubuntu desktop on the host server to complete the installation of other guest OSs?
Sorry for the lengthy post, but I am fairly new to virtual environments and without having few queries cleared, I do not want to move further.
Please reply with as much details possible, I have read lots of stuffs but nothing was as clear as your howtos.
Thanks in advance.
Last night, I tried to setup virtual environment for the first time. I setup ubuntu 8.10 desktop as host and installed KVM over it.
I successfully setup ubuntu server 8.04 as guest, and it works fine. But when tried to install windows server 2003,
after prelim text based setup, when it needs to go to graphical setup (continuing setup after system restart), it can not continue. I get a screen with some text like VGA BIOS Driver, QEMU etc, but at very fast it goes and I get 'Guest not running', (i.e. it is not at all possible to read what that screen contains, it switches so fast)
Please help in the matter.
