Oracle OCI-CLI requires Python packages v 3.6 or higher. During installation it is auto installed on windows server/OS, however on Linux, there might be preinstalled Python package installed, that might need to be updated manually before running the installer. (In few cases, the installation failed and the package needed to be be updated seperately)
Now that the Xen hypervisor/Dom0 virtual machine is configured and up and running, it’s time to configure and create a DomU. Just like we did in the Debian 9 tutorial, we will now install and use the xen-tools package to automate the steps involved in creating a paravirtualized (“PV”) DomU.
INSTALL DEBIAN PACKAGE XEN-TOOLS
Use apt-get to update the Xen hypervisor/Dom0 package index files, and upgrade all currently installed packages. As root run the following command:
# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
Next, use apt-get to install the xen-tools package from the Debian stretch repository, which is currently shipping xen-tools version 4.8-1. Run the following command as root:
# apt-get install xen-tools
SET UP NEW PARTITION AND VOLUME GROUP
Before we use xen-tools to create a new DomU, we need to create a LVM volume group which will be used to provision disk space for new virtual machines. In this step, we assume Dom0 was installed on the /dev/sda1 partition of your primary disk drive, and that all other /dev/sda drive space is empty.

This article is inspired and prepared on the forked Cloudmin Xen script updated for Debian 10. However, the following procedures to be followed as precuationary before executing the updated script, which is available in this post in below section.
PHASE-I Prepare Environment for XEN
INSTALLING THE XEN HYPERVISOR AND HOST/CONTROL DOMAIN (“DOM0”)
In this step we install the Xen Project hypervisor software package, and configure the Dom0 virtual machine by way of the Debian base operating system. Once all preliminary configuration is complete, we will reboot the computer and automatically boot into the Xen hypervisor/Dom0 virtual machine to explore the new system.
INSTALL XEN HYPERVISOR
If you need to add a non-root user, the sudo package, non-free firmware, a firewall, or other necessary packages, now is the time.
Use apt-get to update the Debian base operating system package index files, and upgrade all currently installed packages. As root (or using sudo) run the following command:
To permanently suppress a Last Login message as per on user basis, create a hidden .hushlogin file inside a user’s home directory. For example to suppress a Last Login message for the linuxconfig user, we would run this command:
