ubuntu 1404 server here, virsh 1.2.2 I am trying to install ubuntu to an existing (but yet empty) qcow2 image witht the following command
sudo virt-install --name myVM --ram 512 \ --disk path=/path/to/image.qcow2 \ --location /path/to/ubuntu-16.04.1-server-amd64.iso
Starting install... Retrieving file version.info...
| 116 B 00:00 ... Retrieving file linux...
| 13 MB 00:00 ... Retrieving file initrd.gz...
| 72 MB 00:00 ... Creating domain...
| 0 B 00:01 Connected to domain myVM Escape character is ^]
if I check on another console (
virsh list --all) I see that the machine is running, but now I am honestly stuck with no real cpnmcept hpw to 'get inside'.
virsh connect qemu:///system myVM which returns an error
error: unexpected data 'myVM'
I am used to access VM's via ssh but naturally for a freshly started one with no configurations present inside that's a dead end. So there mus be a way through the standard console, any pointers?
Neither can I stop the new created VM (
sudo virsh shutdown myVM) it just keeps running
