Adding A New Managed Server

  1. Make sure that you have followed Preparing Managed Servers.
  2. Select a server pool in the left Navigation pane, then select Add Server.
    • For example, select KVM-Pool, then right-click to display the context menu
  3. Select the virtualization platform, then click OK. For example, select KVM and then click OK.
  4. Type the host name or IP address of the server, and a user name and password for account with permission to access the managed server, then click OK. For example
  5. If the connection is successful, the managed server is added to the Convirt console.
  6. For KVM and Xen platforms, if your hosts already have existing VMs, you will be prompted to import them. Select the virtual machine configuration files and press OK to kick-off the import of existing virtual machines.
    • NOTE: If you're using libvirt, you may need convert your libvirt configuration files to ConVirt format to make this process work.
    tar -xvf converter.tar
      • Execute the conversion
    ./batch_convert -h
    e.g. ./batch_convert directory_containing_libvirt_generated_xml_files
      • This will create a .cfg file for each xml file found in the directory.
      • Go to the CMS, select the managed host, and select "Import Virtual Machine Config File(s)" option. Select the converted files and import them.
      • ConVirt will launch a task to import the VMs, and they will begin to show up in the CMS as each is imported.
      • For more information, you can find more detailed information/discussion at the following link:
  7. Now you can now create and manage the complete life cycle of virtual machines on this managed server.
