29.17. The layout of the log directories

The basic directory structure in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Virtualization environment is as follows:

/etc/xen/
  • directory containing configuration files used by the xend daemon.

  • host the script used to setup the Virtualization networking environment can be found in the scripts subdirectory.

  • contains the configuration files used to describe virtual machines.

  • Sometimes the system administrator may decided to keep the virtual machine configuration files in a different or central location. Make sure you are not working off old or stale configuration files.

/var/log/xen/
  • directory holding all Xen related log files.

/var/lib/xen/
  • default directory for Virtualization related file (such as XenDB and virtual machine images).

/var/lib/xen/images/
  • The default directory for virtual machine image files.

  • If you are using a different directory for your virtual machine images make sure you add the directory to your SELinux policy and relabel it before starting the installation.

/proc/xen/
  • Xen related information in the /proc filesystem.
