Which version of rhel5 to run xen, server or desktop??


Hello all,

Do I have to be running the Server base rhel to use xen, or can I use the desktop version?

To clerify, my intension is to start learning xen and to use xen to manage virtual machines, for me to use live migration and pull an "image" to my desk top from my server, apply changes, test, and so on. Do I need to run the rhel5-Server version?

Whats the difference of Desktop and Server anyways, I though RH basically did not have a desktop version?

Anyways, thank you in advance.

Nope you need at least the Workstation version, there are ways around this however.

Hint: http://www.centos.org/ yum install kernel-xen xen --enablerepo=centos5
