Virsh / Libvirt
Recently, at work, I had to test a new hypervisor. Usually I work with VMware, Proxmox or Xen and I had to make a Poc with libvirt. For those who don’t know it, I found it very similar with the CLI of Xen. You will find more informations on the libvirt website virsh is a command line interface tool for managing guests and the hypervisor.
To install libvirt/virsh on Debian, you will need the following packages:
# aptitude install qemu-kvm libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon-system bridge-utils qemu-utils virtinst
The package virtinst will install additionnals packages like virt-install or virt-clone.
