I have been searching for the right alternative for managing my Xen VM’s and hosts. Its a pain to boot a Windows VM just for accessing XenCenter. You can download OpenXenManager from http://sourceforge.net/projects/openxenmanager/ or Install it on your Ubuntu machine using the following command:
#sudo apt-get install openxenmanager
PS: Running it from the source from SF.net link didn’t work for me on Ubuntu 12.04 but found it working after installing via apt-get.
Once installed, its very similar to working with the windows version of Citrix Xen Center.
Hope you too find it useful.
To get your OpenManage installation working on a DELL Server installed with Citrix XEN Server, add following IPTABLES rules: INPUT Table -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 5666 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 1311 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 5666 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp […]

A brilliant software engineer, Founder of LxLabs.com, creator of HyperVM – optimized virtualization technology which runs on both Xen and OpenVZ, “Host In a Box” solution LxAdmin/Kloxo for Web hosting companies, server owners, resellers – K.T Ligesh(32) commited suicide last night (8th June,2009) at his residence located in H.S.R Layout, Bangalore.
Yesterday night I was discussing with few of my colleagues about the recent vulnerability report logged on the net and the fixes released to patch it. Sadly I get to read this news in papers on returning home. His innovative products have made a very good name in industry in a very short span of time. A very hardworking talent, free and open source enthusiast and a guitarist. He always thrived provide a best and an optimized web hosting tool to hosting industry. Its a great loss to all of us.
I recall interacting with this genius engineer prior to his product launch and commenting on few initial glitches that I had noticed here at Instacarma. He has been such a great help during our further interactions on LxLabs forum etc. Instacarma family offers its deep condolences to his family and friends.
He puts a question mark in-front of us and LxAdmin’s future is unknown. There are more questions to be answered while his soul rests in peace.

Distro to give a try. What amazed me with this distro is the amount of localization done. New software. It comes with KDE 4.2 which is good. Localization support out of box. You can see Sampada.net Kannada website working out of box in konqueror. Also, don’t forget to check out Virtualization support. It comes with XEN? Nope You have got KVM. Right! it’s time to learn a different virtualization solution. Release note is also available in Kannada and other local language which is pretty good for newbies to understand the distro. Get on with it.
