Thanks a million, Tomoiaga!

I'm still unable to configure VM Protection Policies but, other than that, I think everything works. Nice!

Will change 1.0 with 5.6 in xapi, just run it on each of your XCP nodes and restart xapi.

You will have to install the XenServer drivers in VMs after that, to be able to suspend, migrate a.s.o.
To do that, you will need to download the xs-tools.iso from XenServer 5.6fp1 to your XCP nodes and replace the original xs-tools.iso and install the new drivers.

Regarding the version change for XCP, that should not be an issue, but I am not sure about the XenServer drivers in XCP VMs. I am playing around with them for some time now and they work ok but an expert should answer if it’s ok to use them for production or not since XenServer and XCP are different products.

I appreciate you getting back to me, Todd.

Right now XenCenter integration is severely limited, feature-wise. I sincerely hope improvements are made soon, or a workaround such as that alluded to by Tomoiaga is provided.

Thanks for your time. And for an otherwise incredible product.

Hi Lars,

I'm pretty sure the XenCenter compatibility is in the works. We might
not have all the kinks out by 1.0, but Jon should be able to confirm.

Also, I don't see where the IRC logs are stored either. I asked in the
#xen-api channel and will reply back if I hear anything.

We are in the process of documenting differences between XCP and XenServer here:

Thanks for the feedback and if I hear any news I'll write back either
directly to you or this thread.
