Re: [Xen-users] Does XCP support network boot/diskless dom0?

Just for curiosity...

I have in my lab, two dom0 working within the LTSP project... I mean, I have used the LTSP to deploy a network of Xen servers instead of a network of Desktops....ÂÂ :-D

And each dom0 is a live system, technically close to the Xen Live CD!

Not yet...

I believe Alex [cc:d] has some early prototype code which enables this kind of thing. Alex, could you describe what it can do/ roughly how it works?



I'm looking into deploying a XCP cloud as well using PXE. I've not begun this process but it would seem that if you manually set up a machine to boot via PXE then there'd not be a problem no matter if XCP supported it or not. Is there anything in XCP that would stop my nodes from booting off the network?
