Hi Folks,

What is your method of choice for managing multiple physical
Xen machines ?

I am looking for something that will automate installation of new VMs,
cloning, changing parameters and reporting problems (load, disk, etc).

Something to also allow to kickstart newly purchased hardware to join
the cluster. (kind of "rocks clusters" approach).

I've been using cobbler and its companion tool koan for EL4 and 5 kickstarts both virtualized and not virtualized.


Once you get a fully-rigged kickstart template put together, it's a single command to kickstart a VM.

What are your experiences with both free and commercial solutions ?

many thanks for any input,
