Hi i am trying to run elastix in vmware, and I would like it to run as a service. My problem is that on boot the boot manager automatically boots the base version, and i want to boot the xen version. Can anyone tell me how to change that?

Hi tks for your help.
However while waiting for your answer I got impatient :silly: and called one of my best friends (google) and found out something a little easier - and it is working.

Go to /boot/grub and edit the menu.lst and
set default=0 as below. The default is set default to 1 which will boot the second image.


# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
#hiddenmenu
title CentOS (2.6.18-8.el5xen)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-8.el5
module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5xen ro root=LABEL=/
module /initrd-2.6.18-8.el5xen.img
title CentOS-base (2.6.18-8.el5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5 ro root=LABEL=/
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-8.el5.img
