Virtualized NetWare is managed in the same way as if it were running on a physical machine. For information about managing your NetWare server, see the NW 6.5 SP8: Server Operating System Administration Guide. For additional information about managing NetWare servers in a virtualized environment, see
Managing a NetWare virtual machine is simplified by using the Virtual Machine Manager utility, which is installed by default when you install the Xen virtualization software.
To start the Virtual Machine Manager, open a terminal prompt and enter virt-manager.
Many NetWare administrators prefer to manage the server through the command line. If you want to use the command line, you should be aware of the following issues:
The terminal window might display only 80x24 characters. If you don’t want to scroll to the command line, you need to resize the terminal.
If pressing Alt+Shift+Shift+Esc doesn’t launch the debugger, you can enter 386debug at the command line.
In the VNC Viewer, pressing F8 displays a pop-up utility menu. Press F8 twice to pass single F8 to the remote side.
You can also manage the NetWare virtual machine, and all other virtual machines running on the Xen hypervisor, by using the xm command line tools. For more information, see Virtualization with Xen guide.
To make a break in NetWare from a terminal, enter xm sysrq x c, where x is the domain ID and c is any keyboard character.
