I am not worried about the xen version really. I have 4.0 on centos

Food for thought: What would be the difference in the above support
between Ubuntu/Debian and Fedora 14?
Automatic VM migration in a failure would best be achieved with a 2-node
cluster. Fedora 14 would be best there, as I believe most of the
developers of Pacemaker and RHCS use Fedora/RHEL. At the least, it's
pretty RPM-centric, then gets ported to .deb's.

That in and of itself is not always the best argument though. It was
enough to make me switch from Debian/Ubuntu to RHEL (CentOS)/Fedora though.

Thanks for the input. Currently we do not have any form of auto failover so that is a must moving forward. So is pacemaker the best way to provide auto failover with xen 4.0?

Also, where would XCP come into play with this? Is it something I should consider?
