This article will guide you on how to use to manage KVM guest virtual #machines using virsh #commands.
virsh is a command line utility for managing virsh guest domains/virtual machines and the #hypervisor.
Linux list a KVM vm guest using #virsh command.
The main command interface used to control both Solaris xVM and guest domains is the virsh command. virsh provides a generic and stable interface for controlling virtualized operating systems.
Many virsh commands act asynchronously. This means that the system prompt can return before the operation has completed.
#KVM lets you turn Linux into a hypervisor that allows a host machine to run multiple, isolated virtual environments called guests or virtual machines (VMs).
To log into VM with Virsh, simply:
1. Open a shell prompt or login using ssh.
2. Login to a host server called server1.
3. Use the virsh console command to log in to a running VM called 'centos7' type: virsh console centos7.
The virsh destroy #command initiates an immediate ungraceful shutdown and stops the specified guest virtual machine.
Using virsh destroy can corrupt guest virtual machine file systems.
Use the virsh destroy command only when the guest virtual machine is unresponsive.
