Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Connecting separate VMs to separate displays [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi Peter,

We need the displays directly connected to the Xen VM Server as we are
trying to consolidate our network and completely replace our test
network with a single box that will virtualise the entire network. So
what we want to do is have 4 monitors connected to the Xen Server. Our
test network is entirely for research purposes, so there won't actually
be any real users.

Thanks for your quick response,
