I want to stop using virt-manager (I get tired of bugs and that for an optimal domU must work editing the cfg)
I’m a little confused, understand that as SLES11 SP3 still use xend / libvirt and all open-source graphics board I found used XCP or XAPI, not clear that alternatives to virt-manager have in SLES.
try configuring openQRM-community-5.1, but it seems that is designed for OpenSuse and not for SLES, also openxenmanager probe but does not connect to the server (I think it’s because it can not xend)
What alternatives do I have to virt-manager in SLES11SP3?
I’ve had pretty good experiences using “vi”.
This is not meant as a joke - since we have many similar VMs, which mostly differ in disk image source, vNIF MAC addresses and alike, we either generate those files or clone existing files and modify accordingly.
Coming from a cluster environment, we’re used to using file-based VM configurations anyhow, unlike storing VM definitions in Xen’s store.
And for smaller changes, firing up vi is many times quicker than some graphical tool - and works both on a text console and via low-bandwidth ssh
