I am just trying out XenServer - so far so good.

But one think I noticed that is a bit annoying. My server is in my office.
Its a dual socket Tyan S3970G2NR, quad core Barcelona Opteron, 6GB RAM and a
Adaptec RAID 2820SA array.

Under native Ubuntu 8.04 or Windows Server 2008, when the server starts, all
fans and drives spin up quite noisily but then quieten down to tolerable
levels. Under XenServer 5.0 they just stay running at high-volume.

The AMI bios has some settings under the "health" section that seem to
affect this, but I was wondering if someone can answer how/why XenServer
handles this differently?

Thanks - Richard
