Re: [Xen-users] How to stop yum update on CentOS 5.1 to modify grub

Unfortunately things work a lot different in our country. I'd like to take up your offer on the watchdog, but I know I won't be able to afford it, especially if you say I need to budget for it.

Maybe there is some soft watchdog solution already written. You will need some kind of remote power switch to make it complete.

P.S. What is IPMI2? Will it work on standard Pentium IV grade motherboards, or only on Xeon server grade motherboards? And does it get installed on the inside of the server, or how does it work?

Remote console -> serial over LAN.
Depends on motherboard support, not on the CPU type. I use a rather cheap SuperMicro server that has IPMI with serial (console) over LAN as an option.

IPMI combines really good with Xen servers if you take a moment to configure it properly. Xen takes over the serial port, so you need to follow other instructions than for non-Xen systems. They are only slightly different luckily.
