What you need

  • Installation of ovm_utils on your manager ( p13602094_30_Linux-x86-64.zip available on metalink )
  • A VM with ovmd installed. Keep in mind that all OVM3 templates come with OVMD already installed. If you need to install it manually see this manual

How it works
ovmd is a listening process on your vm that allows messages to be send from and to the manager.
