3.15. Starting a Virtual Machine
This Ruby example starts a virtual machine.
# Get the reference to the "vms" service: vms_service = connection.system_service.vms_service # Find the virtual machine: vm = vms_service.list(search: 'name=myvm') # Locate the service that manages the virtual machine, as that is where # the action methods are defined: vm_service = vms_service.vm_service(vm.id) # Call the "start" method of the service to start it: vm_service.start # Wait until the virtual machine status is UP: loop do sleep(5) vm = vm_service.get break if vm.status == OvirtSDK4::VmStatus::UP end
