Subject Re: Question about XenServer plug-ins
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2014 17:42:02 GMT
Great - thanks, Alex.

I remember looking for a version 6.2.5 of XenServer about nine months ago
(because of that name in CloudStack) and finding out it doesn't actually
exist. :) That it is, in fact, 6.2 + a patch or two.

What this mainly interests me for is that I need to perform some activity
on 6.1 that I've updated the code for and it looks like I'll need to
provide a similar implementation for 6.2.5 so that that same functionality
works on that platform (because it seems like we can't rely on those
plug-ins as much in 6.2.5). Do you agree?

Thanks!
