I'm using a command line like:
qemu -vnc :4 -kernel-kqemu -std-vga -no-reboot -monitor
unix:/vservers/qemu/cms1/cms1.sock,server,nowait -boot c -hda hda1.img -hdb
swap.img -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:16:3e:00:0f:00 -net
tap,vlan=0,ifname=br0-cms1,script=/etc/qemu-ifup-br0 -m 256
I'm running linux but would like the system to feel as close to real hardware
as I can get.
The the shutdown process is a pain.
echo -n "Asking $GUEST to stop...(sleep $WAIT_FOR_GUEST)"
su $USER -c " echo 'sendkey ctrl-alt-delete' |socat -
unix-connect:/$BasePath/$GUEST/$GUEST.sock " >/dev/null
With some distros the guest stops and qemu exits. On Ubuntu the guest will
shutdown and get to "halt", but qemu will never exit.
What is the correct way to setup a remote system like this. I would like to
use the qemu monitor mode better.
Note: The host system is 11 hour away, and I will never sit at the hosts
Thank you for your time.
