cannot install Redhat host based Xen on HP Integrity rx3600

hi all,
I have a Redhat host OS on a HP Integrity rx 3600 , I have installed all required rpms for the XEN kernel. the issue I have is when I reboot the ia-64 server , it correctly reboots the server but the kernel loads but does not bring up the login whereas on the ia64 kernel without the xen packages it functions correctly, any ideas to troubleshoot will be highly appreciated.

Re: cannot install Redhat host based Xen on HP Integrity rx3600

Hi, not sure if its the same support issue, but I had the same problem on SuSE SLES10 Xen. And my issue was because xen was not supported on ia64 but only x64.

The only other option I think you have, if you want to be able to virtualize linux's on Itanium is to install HPUX and use HP-VSE to create your virtual machines, as I dont think vmware or xen have get released an 'Itanium' option.

might be worth google searching as the above may have changed, but I'm pretty sure its still the same issue

hope this helps


regards

Matt
