If anyone is wanting to experiment with SAN technology, but finding
iSCSI too fiddly, have a look at AOE (ATA over Ethernet). There is a
software AoE server, and the kernel client is already in 2.6.11.

I use AOE root on dom0, and on the block devices exported to the other
domains (eg dom0 exports AOE devices, the other domains don't do AOE
themselves). This allows for domain migration to work nicely.

Have a look at: http://aoetools.sourceforge.net/ (tools + software
And: http://www.coraid.com/ (hardware AOE server)

I can post some details for getting Debian root on AOE if anyone is
