Thank you very much for pointing me to the latest live ISO images,
that was exactly what I was looking for. However, I seem to remember a
command or option to automatically send the compatibility or machine
configuration to a Xen-Community controlled server. Do you happen to
know what command or option that was, so that I can submit my results
? For example, the Wiki refers to the commands 'tools/xm-test/xm-test'
and 'XenRT'. Are these still valid commands, and how do I configure
them to send the informational results to the right server ?

Thanks in advance,


John Smith
