Installation of Xen Slave

  1. Update the system before installation:
    yum update
  2. As of January 2019, Xen 4.6 has been removed from CentOS 7 due to the product's End-of-Life (EOL). However, CentOS package centos-release-xen still points to (now nonexistent) Xen 4.6 [more info]. To avoid problems during installation, install Xen 4.8 repositories before running the SolusVM installer:
    yum install -y centos-release-xen-48
  3. Execute the following commands to install SolusVM Slave:
    curl -o && sh
  4. Choose Xen Hypervisor option when prompted to choose SolusVM type: InstallXen

  5. After the installation is completed there will be the output as follows: KeyXenInstall

  6. Reboot the server and configure Xen kernel by running the command:

    php /usr/local/solusvm/includes/xenkernel.php

  7. After installation is finished, disable SELinux on a permanent basis in /etc/selinux/config file.
