Re: [Xen-users] Xen in Xen

If i remember well, nested virutalisation is possible but only for paravirtualised guests inside HVM guests.

The FAQ seems to agree:

So for now you can't run windows guest in HVM guest (for exmaple).

Nested HVM guests once was in the features request list of Xen 4.1 (presented as a convenient feature to learn VM management, nothing else.). AFAICT it has not been released.
IMHO, running a cloud this way would not be either efficient nor reliable.

I would like to know if it possible to run Xen in Xen.
I ordered a "cloud" private server on 1and1. My server is now running as a Xen guest, but it is quite transparent for me.
Now, I would like to run my own "cloud" from this machine.

I Installed the last linux kernel (3.0) with xen tools, but I do not know if this is really possible. Do you have an idea ?
