Description Reinhard Brandstaedter 2007-05-02 03:34:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I was looking for a documentation about Xen and VNET support. The document gives
only hints how to create a vnet, but these hints are almos useless (no examples
etc.) Also I found that vnets are not supported in a RHEL 5 Virtualization install?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Hi Reinhard,

i'm from the Docs team, just a quick FYI: will be updating the docs as soon as i
can to include more information about VNET management.

at present we do not have vnet support for xm on RHEL; however, virsh and
virt-manager CAN now be used in virtual network administration. if i'm not
mistaken, these capabilities should be available come RHEL5.1; i'll try to sync
up the documentation for this when that happens.

Comment 8 Don Domingo 2007-07-06 01:36:13 EDT

docs source updated with new instructions on vnet management thru virsh and

should be available in 5.1.
