    Going Bonkers - got W2K3 X-64 server working on KVM/QEMU


    Hi there
    Must be going bonkers -- got W2K3 X-64 server version working on KVM/QEMU

    One needs a bit of fiddling to make it work as a Workstation as opposed to a server - but it's much better, stable and faster than XP 32 bit so I'm hoping to run my legacy XP stuff on this. The virtio drivers for windows all loading fine including Networkcards and proper Video resolution.

    Had trouble getting this to work with VMWare

    Cheers

    qemu-kvm

    It will not run under Windows as KVM is a kernel-level virtualization built for the Linux kernel.

    It allows remote management (through KVM) using VNC (password optional, but I do recommend one.)

    You don't need X installed on the server. You can install X Server on a windows machine, open an X tunnel using SSH, and open virt-manager and it will be displayed on your Windows box. I work with KVM in a business environment and it is a very nice platform (we have something like 8 QEMU/KVM virtual machines in production running on a dual-quad core xeon server with hyperthreading and 24gb of memory). Virt-manager makes it very easy to manage QEMU/KVM but the CLI tools gives you much more control.


    I thought it could only run under the architecture it was compiled for.

  3. qemu-kvm

    virt-manager is the gui that can be used to do exactly this.

    from the open source project:QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

    When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performance.

    When used as a virtualizer, QEMU achieves near native performances by executing the guest code directly on the host CPU. QEMU supports virtualization when executing under the Xen hypervisor or using the KVM kernel module in Linux. When using KVM, QEMU can virtualize x86, server and embedded PowerPC, and S390 guests.
