I'm using Debian Jessie as a virtual machine host using libvirt/qemu/kvm.
I've set some of the guest virtual machines to automatically start when the host OS boots up, this is working fine.
For maintenance purposes, I'm running
"service libvirt-guests stop" to shut all the guests down (but not the host).
Once I've done my maintenance, I want to easily boot all the guests up again (without rebooting the host).
Is there a single command that will start all the guest VMs up again? I'm interested in knowing about both:
a command to start all the autostart-marked guests up again
a command to start all the guests up again that were running before I ran
"service libvirt-guests stop"
Rebooting the host OS would achieve #1, but I don't want to reboot the host.
"service libvirt-guests start" but it doesn't seem to do it.
