I was able to get the 5.6 SP2 DDK VM installed and build OVS 1.3.0 without any problems. Unfortunately the kernel name used for 5.6 SP2 isn't the same as for XCP 1.1 so I'm not going to be able to just install the new OVS 1.3 based kernel module into XCP, at least not cleanly.

XenServer 5.6 SP2:


XCP 1.1:


Does anyone know the easiest path forward? My plan is to install the XCP kernel source into the 5.6 SP2 DDK VM, compile and install it and then recompile OVS 1.3. Does that sound reasonable?

It's a bit crazy that we don't have a DDK VM for XCP. If there's a design or build doc somewhere someone could pass on to me I'd be happy to build the DDK VM and make it available to the community. Given the number of requests there seems to be a need.

I need to build/install a newer version of OVS and the instructions:


indicate the use the DDK VM to make that happen. I scoured the mailing lists, wiki, and docs and can't find any reference to the DDK for XCP 1.1.

I can't be the only one waiting for the DDK, is there any information regarding its release?

Todd answered:
For now you can use the XenServer 5.6 FP 1 ddk.

We are working on the XCP 1.0 DDK.


Does this hold true for XCP 1.1, with the difference being that we should use the 5.6 FP2 DDK from:
