    Hi guys,

    Trying to add a Centos iso for KVM but i cant seem to find where to get it from?

    I know i need to add the iso to the kvm/iso folder and then add it through solusvm but i dunno where to get the file from.

    Centos sources

    There are plenty of mirrors available here:

    isoredirect.centos.org/centos/6/isos/x86_64/

    eg: centos.hostingxtreme.com/6.4/isos/x86_64/

    pick an appropriate ISO from the list What images are in this directory

    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-netinstall.iso
    This is the network install and rescue image.
    This image is designed to be burned onto a CD. You then boot your computer off the CD.

    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-minimal.iso
    The aim of this image is to install a very basic CentOS 6.4 system, with the minimum of packages needed to have a functional system.
    Please burn this image onto a CD and boot your computer off it. A preselected set of packages will be installed on your system. Everything else needs to be installed using yum.
    Please read wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOSMinimalCD6.4 for more details about this image.
    The set of packages installed by this image is identical to the one installed when choosing the group named "Minimal" from the full DVD image.

    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso
    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
    These two dvd images contain the entire base distribution.
    Please burn DVD1 onto a DVD and boot your computer off it.
    A basic install will not need DVD2.
    After the installation is complete, please run "yum update" in order to update your system.

    Thanks for the link but i dont see how installing it in my computer is going to help me install it on my server.

    I need to change my current VPS over from OpenVZ to KVM so i can install cloudlinux and also offer different templates to customers.

    Who said something about installing CentOS on your computer? The instructions popwicked9 mentioned are simply the readme file...

    SSH to your KVM node, go to /home/solusvm/kvm/iso/ and do
    Code:
    wget http://mirrors.ukfast.co.uk/sites/ftp.centos.org/6.4/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.4-x86_64-minimal.iso
    Then SSH to your SolusVM master, go to /home/solusvm/kvm/iso/ and do
    Code:
    touch CentOS-6.4-x86_64-minimal.iso
    Finally add the ISO from within the SolusVM Admin panel.
