On Friday we published an updated release of OpenSolaris for Xen. It is still pre-alpha quality but we wanted to get it out in the community as soon as it was relatively working.

This update adds OpenSolaris-based dom0 capabilities, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit MP guests. We're currently synced up with OpenSolaris build 41, and Xen 3.0.2-2.

Is there documentation anywhere on how to bootstrap a Solaris domU to run on a Linux dom0? Now that it looks like it's getting somewhat stable (at least supports block devices and such!), that would make it much easier for those of us with existing Linux dom0's to try it out.

The instructions here:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/xen/How-To-07-2006/Solaris- domU/

describe how to create a Solaris domU image. The process requires that you have a Solaris dom0 system running.

Once you have the domU image it can be used with a Linux dom0.

We're discussing how to provide a pre-built domU image.

Thanks much for all the hard work!

You're welcome!
