Debian/etch Xen: Nice, but not quite ready for me

by Sander Marechal

In my previous post I explained how I set up my new server as a Xen server in order to maximize my flexibility. It's been little over a week now and I am saddened to say that Xen has gone out the Window. While I love the flexibility, it's just not ready for me yet.

A test drive of Debian/etch Xen

Daddy's got a brand new toy to play with :-) A few months ago swbrown posted a fantastic tutorial on the LXer forums that gave a short overview of setting up RAID with LVM, Xen and LUKS. Around that same time I noticed a decommissioned HP server at my job. I decided to buy it off my boss and see if I could get to swbrown's nice setup. Here is an overview of the machine:

HP ProLiant ML370 G3
Dual Xeon 3.2 Ghz CPU
1024 Mb RAM
4 x 36.4 Gb + 2 x 18.2 Gb hardware RAID array

Here's how I fared in making this new toy into a flexible Xen server.
