    Hello

    I am a newbie to kvm and have followed your post to install kvm (at http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-kvm-on-ubuntu-8.10 ) and built a vm. It was very useful. I am doing it over ubuntu 8.10 desktop.

    Now that I am past that stage, I wanted to actually use the vm.

    When I do
    $ putty vm1
    I am getting an error "No route to host"

    And when I use virt-viewer
    $ sudo virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh:///system
    I get the error "unable to find vnc graphics for vm1"

    What could be the problem?

    Apreciate any help
    Tx

    Are you running those commands on the KVM host or on a remote system?

    Can you run
    Code:
    sudo virsh --connect qemu:///system
    and then
    Code:
    list --all
    to see if the vm is running?

    I am able to see the vm in virsh listing.

    Also when I launch it with
    $ kvm -hda disk01.img -m 512 -boot d -cdrom /home/ubiquity/hardy-i386.iso
    I can boot into the rescue mode. And I see the ifconfig return an IP address in 10.2.x.x range
    (My host IP is 172.25.65.xx)
    But when I try to boot in the normal mode it fails to connect to archive.ubuntu.com
    and fails to load a bunch of packges:
    x11-common libxau6 libxdmcp6 libxcb1 libxcb-xlib0 libx11-data libx11-6 libext6 libxmuu1 xauth libedit2 openssh-client libwrap0 openssh-server tcpd


    Host ifconfig (if it helps is)

    Additionally

    virsh # net-list --all

    default active yes

    Should I be able to see the bridged network interface here also?


    Thanks

    Can you start the vm from the virsh shell (instead of using kvm)?
