Subject: Re: LVM
LVM is great for that sort of thing. I recently finished building a SAN appliance out of a Linux machine with fibre channel target mode drivers, and used LVM to manage the disk slices being exported to the initiator machines.
Performance was *really* good. Now we're thinking about using it in a virtual infrastructure to keep the storage separate from the VM hosts. VMware Server was being considered, but perhaps Xen should be evaluated as well. I take it you need hardware VT if you want to run 'doze as a guest OS?
VMWare Server is obsolete already. Xen or VMware's hypervisor product would be the way to go for virtual infrastructure.
VMware Server runs unmodified guests on an ordinary host operating system.
Low-end, but it gets the job done.
Oh, I assumed you were virtualizing Linux-on-Linux for purposes of consolidation and management flexibility. If you're just running Linux on Xen, there's no reason to want to run an unmodified guest; paravirt is faster.
Everybody on 3:
Singing is like mega-praying.
It's a pity that I haven't found a church that preaches the Gospel of Linux.
using bash, try to autocomplete postfix.
as in /etc/init.d/post<tab><tab>
you get a get_cword: command not found error.
Apparently there's a patch for it, also happens for umount I guess.
But how weird is that.

Linus would be the Pope. ;)
Sorry, I don't recognize the authority of popes (or Saint iGNUcius either, for that matter).
