Regarding running Xen & NSS:

Running NSS on the Host Server Is Not Supported

NSS pools and volumes are not supported on the Xen host server in a Xen
virtualization environment. You can install NSS on the guest servers
from inside the guest server environment, just as you would if the guest
servers were physical servers.

Novell Documentation

Yes thank you I was not going to be installing anything else onto the box other than XEN, Gnome, and the C++ tools. Then inside of the Guests I would actually create my servers with the NSS volumes, e-Directory, and GroupWise systems. That is why I wanted to get the drives to work under SLES so that I could use them for my guests OS systems when I was adding more to the system as a whole.

Hi alekz:

While your answers seem to be very helpful, they're in the wrong place.
Support for Novell products is not allowed in this particular forum
(community chat). The original poster said that he also asked the
question in the support forum, so he should be answered there (which
you may also have done, but I don't follow that one).


Sorry for my posts, I will try to see if anyone has answered my questions in the support forum. Just a lot of frustration over this issue, and seeing Novell being replaced by MS.
