Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have KVM and Virsh installed. When I restart windows inside the VM, the VM does not come back up without issuing a virsh start command.

I found this http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-centos-linux-kvm-virtualization-start-virtual-machine-guest... at the end, it says

Also, make sure /etc/init.d/libvirtd service is stared on boot: chkconfig libvirtd on

Ubuntu uses upstart though, not chkconfig. Can anyone help me with the equivalent command?
