Note that 4.1.6 did not get released, as a build issue was found late in the release process, when the 4.1.6 version number was already irreversibly applied.
With so many people returning from well-earned vacations, we want to remind you to act quickly to take advantage of the upcoming Summit meetings.
Register now to join the first large-scale gathering of Xen Users on September 18 in New Orleans!
One of the stated goals for 2013 and 2014 of the Xen Project Advisory Board is to Increase upstream Xen Hypervisor quality including the quality of its latest CPU and Platform features and to address problems with the code in a timely and proactive manner, including defects, security vulnerabilities and performance problems.
The following procedure was tested by me, and was found to be working. The version of the XenServer I am using in this particular case is 6.1, however, I belive that this method is generic enough so that it could work for every version of XS, assuming you're using iSCSI and LVM (aka - not NetApp, CSLG, NFS and the likes). It might act as a general guideline for fiber channel communication, but this was not tested by me, and thus - I have no idea how it will work.
If you are testing Xen in your environment, you probably already have images native to other hypervisors which you might like to test. So a common question is, “How can I convert these images so I can use them in Xen?”
Conversion requires two steps: first, convert the foreign hypervisor image to a Xen-native format, and, second, adjust the contents of the image to accept the new virtual machine environment.
The following monologue explains how Linux drivers are able to program a device when running in a Xen virtual machine on ARM.
The problem that needs to be solved is that Xen on ARM guests run with second stage translation in hardware enabled. That means that what the Linux kernel sees as a physical address doesn’t actually correspond to a machine address. An additional translation layer is set by the hypervisor to do the conversion in hardware.
The Xen Project is pleased to announce the sessions which will be presented at the 2013 Xen Project User Summit. Scheduled for September 18 in New Orleans, the Xen Project User Summit is the first major event focused entirely on users of the Xen Project software. While there have been other Xen Summits in the past, they have always consisted of a mixture of User and Developer sessions. This year, we have the opportunity to present two different events, a User Summit in September and a Develope
