I would like to capture the video output of virtual machine running on Xenserver from boot-up and through reboots. I know I can capture the video by capturing the output of an assigned VGA adapter, but that's not really a great option for us, and it's not very quickly repeatable.
A little background: we're a mostly Linux shop with a few (but growing number) of Windows machines. As a Linux shop we don't really have very much expertise managing standard Windows services like Active Directory, so we're hiring a consultant to come in and configure it and show us how to maintain it. I would like to capture every button press and menu selection that the consultant does while he's here so we can look back to see exactly how he did it for long-term documentation.
The easiest solution would be to capture the video output of the console window on a machine running Xencenter but I'd prefer a more elegant, built-in, solution.
Is there a way to get Xencenter (possibly via a plugin I'm unaware of) to just capture the output of the console, even through reboots? We also use OpenXenManager in Linux, but AFAIK, it won't work this way either.
