==== Adding a VM to Virtual Machine Manager ====
+
==== ====
Dennis J.  asked<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-June/msg00026.html</ref>
 
"How do I add a custom-built vm to {{package|virt-manager}}?"
 
 
 
This is a two step process with a few ways to accomplish them.
 
# Create an XML representation<ref>http://www.libvirt.org/formatdomain.html</ref> of the guest, or domain, configuration.
 
# Import this definition into {{package|libvirt}}. i.e. <code>virsh define guest.xml</code>
 
 
 
The {{package|python-virtinst|virt-image}}<ref>http://people.redhat.com/dlutter/virt-image/virt-image-xml.html</ref>
 
tool was suggested and worked for Dennis.
 
There is also a perl script<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue174#Virt-Manage_an_Existing_Guest</ref> that can be used to create an XML definition from the set of <code>qemu-kvm</code> command line arguments used to create the guest. There is a public API in <code>libvirt</code> for converting back and forth between the native hypervisor configurations and XML representations.<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue176#Converting_Between_Domain_XML_and_Native_Configurations</ref>
 
 
 
Finally, <code>virt-install</code> added an <code>--import</code> option which allows creating a guest from an existing disk image, bypassing any OS install phase.<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Issue166#New_Release_virtinst_0.4.2</ref>
