Re: [Xen-devel] Can the open source XAPI toolstack be used on SUSE 11?

Hi Dave,
Nice to receive your suggestion.
My purpose is to use the Xapi in the original SUSE11 rather than to replace SUSE11'xen and dom0 kernel.
I am wondering whether the open source Xapi toolstack is developed to match the XCP(xen, dom0 kernel and other patches)?
And is it possible to use xapi toolstack with no modification to manager other virtual platform(such as SUSE),which is based on xen.
Thanks for your information.

I haven't tried to use xapi on SUSE 11.

If you:
. Compile the binary on a SUSE 11 maching (to prevent library version mismatches)
. Use the xen and qemu versions listed on the xen.org page with the patch queues applied
. Use the dom0 kernel from XCP
Then it ought to work, more or less. They may well be some trivial problem like a missing file in /etc/. Could you post the end of your /var/log/xensource.log file? That will probably contain relevant information.

Hi All,

I am trying to use the XAPI toolstack(open source by xensource.) to manager a SUSE 11 host. However,the service XAPI start failed on SUSE 11 when I execute "service xapi start".
I am not sure whether XAPI toolstack can be used based on SUSE 11?
Can anyone give me some information about version of xen hypervisor and patch I need to match the XAPI toolstack ?
