Phoenix is our secondary VM host. It rose from the ashes of europa and xen2 It is currently in development.


Generally, we followed the instructions on the debian wiki.

Things to install

apt-get install htop vim sudo qemu-kvm libvirt-bin virtinst

Network Bridge Setup

In order for the VMs to be on our LAN, a bridge must be set up as follows:

In /etc/network/interfaces:

Manual set up:

1) Create new bridge iterface "brctl addbr <bridge_name>"

2) Add existing interface to bridge "brctl addif <bridge_name> <iterface_name>"

3) Bring bridge up "ifconfig <bridge_name> up"

Bridging interfaces will cause the interfaces used to not have an ip address even if they are up. The bridge interface will contain an ip address.
