Creating virtual machines through Kimchi WebUI

Kimchi uses the concepts of templates that can be re-used to create similar guests. Its a two step task to create a virtual machine:

  1. Create a template from an ISO or a pre-installed guest OS image file.
  2. Deploy the VM from the template; Kimchi automatically allocates a new disk and gets emulated hardware configuration according to the template chosen.

    To create a new guest, click on the Guests menu item, and then click on the green + icon. Simply give your virtual machine a name, select a template to build it from, and click on Create. That's all.
