Unable to add host as Xen, OpenVZ

Hello,

We purchased Cloudmin Pro and we are trying to setup the host system with Xen. Webmin offers to install everything needed for Xen and then it asks to reboot. So we go ahead and install, it says the install is successful and we reboot. Once we reboot and go to add the host as Xen, it tells us the following: This system is not ready to host Xen instances : The kernel does not include Xen support. Perhaps your do not have the Xen-specific kernel installed?

Here are the kernels we have installed: kernel-3.10.0-1062.12.1.el7.x86_64 kernel-3.10.0-1062.el7.x86_64

There is no kernel with Xen that was installed, it appears. We also tried with OpenVZ but it keeps saying this: Setting up OpenVZ host system .. Checking system status .. .. done Unsupported operating system type CentOS Linux .. setup failed! See the error message above.

We are running Centos7 and OpenVZ should be able to support it.

The reason why we are running into this mess is because apparently WHMCS didn't add the most important server type which is KVM. There is every possible option you can think of except for KVM.

Any assistance is appreciated, thank you.

Does CentOS 7 have a Xen-capable kernel as part of the standard distribution? I don't think so ... only KVM.

Is there a reason you can't enable KVM support in Cloudmin?
