Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Convert CentOS system to Xen image?

You will start it from the command line with 'xm create <config file>'.

Oh and I made a mistake in my example config earlier, where it specified the iso for the cdrom it should be 'file:/path_to_iso,hdc:cdrom,r', I left out the :cdrom for the device type.

Trying this. Should I still use virt-manager for starting and stopping
them? If so, how do I get it to re-read the new config file? If not, how
do you start them without virt-manager?
