I'm new to Xenserver. I have to configure high availability between
two Xenservers I have attached a rough sketch.  The licensing that has
been purchased is for "Advanced".

I want to use shared storage, where both the Xenservers use a common
LUN. The virtual machines will "live" on this LUN.
I want the virtual machines to be running on one Xenserver. If this
server "goes down" the HA should start them up on the second
When the Xenserver come back on line then the machine must HA/Motion
back to there home Xenserver.

Is this possible with the given license ?
Is there a howto for this ?

Can common storage (Same LUN multiple VM's on it running in different
hosts) be used with the "Free" version of Xenserver 5.6 ?
