About this Hands-on Lab

In this lab, we’re going to be using the provisioned servers to practice managing Virtual Machines in a RHEL7 environment.

We’ll start one, and investigate the settings to discover and troubleshoot issues.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Find the Name of the Virtual Machine on the Server

You will first have to sudo into the root user

[cloud_user@host]$ sudo -i 

To get a list of installed virtual machines you can run:

[root@host]# virsh list --all
Start the VM

We can boot up a VM by running:

[root@host]# virsh start centos7.0
Determine the Location and Names of the Files that the VM Contain the VM Storage

We can look at the configuration of an individual VM by running:

[root@host]# virsh edit centos7.0

What we’ll see is an XML file. Sections labled disk contain the source file for all the disks allocated to the VM.

We should see references to files in /var/lib/libvirt/images/, including centos7.0.

Additional Resources

You've been provided with a server that has a virtual machine set up.

Start the VM and investigate how it is set up.

Note: Please give the the lab an extra minute or two before starting the lab to ensure the server has finished provisioning.
