Running OpenBSD on Xen
Here’s the configuration I use to run OpenBSD 4.9-beta on my NetBSD/xen server (NetBSD 5 with Xen 3.3.1). Since OpenBSD doesn’t provide a Xen-aware kernel, I run it using HVM.
My Virtual LAN using NetBSD/xen
Virtualization allows running several OSes in the same time on the same hardware server. Xen is a (free) virtualization technology that allows modified OS (Xen-aware) to run as virtual machines. Each virtual machines (AKA domU) has it’s own ressources and don’t overlap with others. With a CPU that provides hardware virtualization (VMX), one can also run “native” OS like Microsoft Windows, FreeBSD or OpenSolaris. Here’s how I installed and configured my Xen environment.
Xen is back!
After a few month of VMware ESXi testings, the whole LAN is back to NetBSD/xen!
