Subject Re: Can same Xen Server Host be used for different Management Servers?
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 00:30:11 GMT
This can be made to work (but YMMV, not for production)
The configuration table has an entry with name = 'instance.value'.
This is set to 'VM' by default (and hence the vm names on the hypervisors
have 'VM') on them.
Change this to something else (e.g., KM) on the 4.0 installation.
