Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move to Debian9 systemvmtemplate
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2017 01:59:36 GMT
Syed,

I did a bunch of work on XenServer with Packer [1] before leaving Citrix.
My stuff works rather well and was tested with XS 6.2, 6.5 and 7. It
shouldn't be hard to validate with newest XS and updated Packer - I just
lack the infra to do the testing.
