#1 Updated by Ruben S. Montero about 12 years ago

  • Target version set to Release 1.4

The Virtual Box hypervisor will be supported by extending the Libvirt driver. This includes adding generic support for hypervisor URL (e.g. vbox:///session)

#2 Updated by Abel Miguez about 12 years ago

Points to take into account:

  • Pay attention to the virsh "by default hypervisor" when installed more than one libvirt managed hypervisor at the same host. (i.e kvm, vbox)
  • Modify Information Manager, vbox gets an error at "onevm show <vm-id>" due to vbox unsupported feature when libvirt execute "virsh dominfo". (This is not a real error at "virsh level" just an information message)
  • Look for some update at the vbox driver to allow submitting VM on a "headless mode" through libvirt's template.
    Right now, this could be achieved by modifying the vbox driver.
