Subject RE: CloudStack System VMs - guest vm tools support for XEN and KVM
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 22:51:39 GMT
For Xen, I would like to propose following xe-guest version options...

I could not locate the version 5.6.0-595 xe-guest RPMs  we currently use online.
		
xe-guest-utilities-6.0.2-756.i386.rpm	15.2 kB	5/17/12 8:00:00 PM
xe-guest-utilities-6.1.0-1033.i386.rpm	15.4 kB	11/21/12 8:47:00 AM
xe-guest-utilities-xenstore-6.0.2-756.i386.rpm	46.2 kB	5/17/12 8:00:00 PM
xe-guest-utilities-xenstore-6.1.0-1033.i386.rpm	46.4 kB	11/21/12 8:47:00 AM

I will also provide an option for a user to point to his own version of xe-guest utilities
rpms. This will give them and ability to roll their own Xen tool utils.

Regards
ilya

Ok.. so we are getting closer.

We got KVM out of the way :) 

I cant find the official yum/rpm repo for XE tools - if there is such - please let me know.

I would like to make flexible - such that you are not bound to specific version as you rebuild
each time.

I did find something from GoDaddy, but I'm hoping for something more official.

For KVM, there is no vm guest tools. For xenserver, seems it needs xe-guest-utilities_5.6.0-595_i386.deb?
