Note: We can use below Red Hat link to configure VNC server on RHEL 7 OS.
1. To open vncviewer (VNC Client Tools):
3. To open virt-manager as sudo user (or root):
4. To click “New VM” button on the Virtual Machine Manager window:
5. Select “Use ISO image: and click Browse on the “Step 2 of 5” window:
6. I copied all the RHEL OS ISOs in the /iso directory on KVM System. Browse the filesystem and select ISO Image from /iso location and click choose volume from the "Choose Storage Volume":
7. To Select assign Memory (RAM) and CPUs, as required and click Forward on the "Step 3 of 5" window:8. Select “Select or create custom storage” and click manage on the Step 4 of 5 window:
Select default location (/va

Now, you will see the disk image or volume name in the mange.. box, click Forward on the Step 4 of 5 window.
9. At last, we need to type the Virtual Machine Name & Select Network Selection (Here we select the Bridge interface) and click Finish on the Step 5 of 5.
10. It will take some time to create the VM and will open another window, once VM creation is completed.
11. Now, VM is started and booting from the ISO Image (Virtual CDROM). It will display the boot menu for the RHEL 7.3 installation. Select the “Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 (64-bit Kernel)” press Enter.
12. After reboot, We can login to the VM.
So this is how we can create VM, Install OS on the VM, Start/Stop VM using virt-manager.
We also can use virt-install command to install the VM or access to the VM. I have tried to install another VM using virt-install command as below:
--boot cdrom,hd \
--graphics vnc \
And it will open a graphical window to continue the remaining installation activity as below:
Good uck to you. enjoy the Red Hat KVM on IBM Power System. Create VM, Install OS on VM and Start/Stop/Clone the VM based on your requirement.
