MD3000i RHEL 5 Xen Cluster

I am interested in using the MD3000i to build a RHEL 5 Xen virtual server farm. Will the MD3000i work with RHEL Cluster Suite ?

RE: MD3000i RHEL 5 Xen Cluster

I've asked some of our Xen experts to respond to your question. They are out this week but you ought to see a reply here in a few days.

Thanks, Dave

RE: MD3000i RHEL 5 Xen Cluster

Here's the word from our technical guys: We soon plan to support MD3000i with RHEL5.1. Red Hat has stated that the RHEL 5 clustering will work with Xen, however, since Dell has not tested the RHEL 5 clustering with Xen and with the MD3000i, we can't confirm that this all works together.

Hi,
Yes, Dell is now not able to support RHEL 5.1 with MD3000i, but we found a sollution to handle this issue.
For interest please look at this private Wiki

The post is written in german but could also usefull for non german.

RE: MD3000i RHEL 5 Xen Cluster

Greetings - I ran across this today, and wanted to mention that Dell now has cluster support for the MD3000i and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Here is the link:
