download PDF
This section covers how to make guest virtual machines start automatically during the host physical machine system's boot phase.
This example uses virsh to set a guest virtual machine, TestServer, to automatically start when the host physical machine boots.
# virsh autostart TestServer
Domain TestServer marked as autostarted
The guest virtual machine now automatically starts with the host physical machine.
To stop a guest virtual machine automatically booting use the --disable parameter
# virsh autostart --disable TestServer
Domain TestServer unmarked as autostarted
The guest virtual machine no longer automatically starts with the host physical machine.
