Hi there,

This mailing list is mostly concerned with the open source release of Xen.  
Folks on here largely aren't that familiar with XenServer, so they might not 
be able to help you.  The forums at http://forums.xensource.com might be able 
to supply you with more useful information!

I think you can administer a XenEnterprise 4 host over SSH using the "xe" 
tool.  There isn't a GUI management tool for Linux for XenEnterprise 4 at 
this time (there was one written in Java for XenEnterprise 3).

Does that help answer your question?


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
