Setting up a virtual machine host

Initial setup

Follow the Ubuntu installation guide, and then run the Ansible playbook for VM servers to update the host.

XML File Managment

We use a Git repository to manage the configuration files for all of the VMs. The repository is stored in /qemuconfig, and /etc/libvirt/qemu is just a symbolic link to the host's folder in the Git repository. Whenever you change the configuration of a VM, remember to commit and push your changes!
