If you are creating a new Debian box there is a helper script (new-wheezy-vps.sh ) which just just need to pass a system name to and you will get a 40G disc/ 512MB RAM system.
will create a system named ciworker13 with 40G of disc and 512MB of memory with the Debian wheezy boot iso connected to the cdrom drive.
The manual setup for other systems is:
- create lvm device for the system
lvcreate --size 40G -n system_name vg
- if the OS requires a cdrom install media download and place in /var/lib/libvirt/images/
- use virt install to create the new VM substitutig appropriate values for volume name, memory, boot disc
virt-install -n ciworker13 -r 512 --disk path=/dev/mapper/vg-ciworker13,bus=virtio \
-c /var/lib/libvirt/images/cd54.iso --accelerate --network=bridge:br0 \
--connect=qemu:///system --vnc --noautoconsole -v
You can either use virsh on phoenix to directly admin consoles or alternatively use virt-admin over the VPN which is by far the easier option.
