I used RedHat ES 4
Update 3, 64-bit version to host my XEN machine. Unfortunately I had to
take that machine apart and don't have XEN on it anymore, so I won't be able to
supply many details.
I was able to start
the VM's with both VNC and SDL. SDL did not work very well, so I set VNC
and did not autostart VNC viewer. I mostly connected to the VM using
Remote Desktop installed by RedHat.
Before VNC would
work though, I had to get a VNC server running in dom0 first. I think the
server creates some files necessary for a connection that the XEN startup does
not create. After being able to VNC into localhost I was able to VNC into
I had to disable USB
ports on all my dell servers running linux because of IRQ contention. I
also included 'noirqbalance' as a kernel argument for dom0.
For networking, I
used brighe with the default settings and it worked. I needed to test a
routing configuration without bridging and was able to make it work. I
started xen with network-route and vif-route. To connect to the HVM domU's
I had to assign an IP address to the TUN interface created with the domU.
The configuration files had no way of identifying which TUN interface goes with
a domU so I had to assign the addresses manually.
I ran WinXP as a
workstation in a domU and everything worked perfectly except for my
dual-monitors and I had no sound.

Hi Max, sorry for the direct mail.
I have some problems with my Dell PE2950 and I want
to know your experience, with your virtualization.
What OS are you using ? 32 or 64 bits
I'm using RedHat 64 bits and I can't use vnc
option. Have you?
