• HyperVM Installation

    Important Pre-Installation Step

    Make sure that you open the ports 8888 and 8887 in the firewall. Otherwise you won’t be able to connect to HyperVM.

    You have to disable selinux by editing /etc/sysconfig/selinux and changing the line to selinux=disabled and then running
    # $ setenforce 0

    HyperVM installation consists of downloading either the hypervm-install-master.sh or hypervm-install-slave.sh from http://download.lxcenter.org and execute it as root. It will download all the required files and do the complete installation on it’s own.

    Install Commands

    # $ setenforce 0
    # $ wget http://download.lxcenter.org/download/hypervm/production/hypervm-install-master.sh
    # $ sh ./hypervm-install-master.sh --virtualization-type=xen

    virtualization-type=NONE (which will install just hyperVM components, and skip the virtualization components entirely)

    virtualization-type=xen (which will install hyperVM components, and Xen virtualization components )

    virtualization-type=openvz (which will install hyperVM components, and openvz virtualization components )

    You should got the following output on the screen :
