1. Xen Storage Management : 
* Create a new storage from type "xen-storage"
* Create a new logical volume on this storage
* Use the "local-storage" plugin to populate the new logical volume
or use the "linuxcoe-plugin" to automatically install a Linux distribution on it.
* Another option is to connect to the VMs VNC console and install an OS in the regular way.
Create an Image using the new created logical volume as root-device
Result is an openQRM Image (server-template) which can be deployed to a Xen-Storage VM (on the same system) via an Appliance
  • Virtualization -> Xen-storage -> Xen VMs -> hubert.gizur ** VMs
