Currently, I'm running the IT for a small organization, and we just purchased a new server to replace our aging Dell poweredge. As the Dell isn't so bad as to be junk, I was hoping to set up Xen on the new server, then convert the old to be a failover target through Xen Remus. However, I have been completely unable to get the remus tool on our new server. I've tried the following:
*CentOS 5.5, stock, and with compiling Xen from source for a custom 2.6.32 kernel (encountered an error we couldn't debug during boot when attempting to use custom kernel) *Debian 6.0 *Ubuntu 10.04 (non-mainline Xen packages)
I've managed to get the dom0 running on all of them, but none of the versions that have run have had Remus.
Does anyone know of a tutorial that encompasses setting up Remus from the ground up, or know what OS I could use as a dom0 that would include remus with a xen package? So far, I have not found any resources related to Remus that start prior to having the tool already installed.
