3.1. Installing a VM Server

A VM Server is a machine that can house virtual frontend appliances. It is required to build a VM Server if you wish to build virtual clusters.

Building a VM Server is just like building a traditional frontend, except that you must have installed properly the KVM Roll. Follow the procedure Install and Configure Your Frontend and be sure to supply the KVM Roll.

After you build the VM Server, you'll need to install VM Containers (see the next section).
