Some quirkiness here and some quirkiness there. Looks like a viridian cousin to me, that one too did the 8 core show on the vid we showed you guys sometime back.
It is a bit weird you can define more VCPUs than cores in the physical box. In the screenshot above I defined 4 vCPUs while the physical box (DL380 G5) only has one dual-core CPU. After doing that, the machine refused to boot and I had to revert to 2 vCPUs. Logical but the UI should prevent the user from making that choice.
You can note from the General tab's screenshot that the Virtualization: label reads Optimized. Like before, you have to install the XenSource tools in the Windows virtual machine to provide it with optimized drivers. The XenSource tools are on an iso (xs-tools.iso) that is automatically mounted when you select the option Install XenSource Tools from the VM menu in XenCenter.
Anyways , here's to Geert's effort to spend some time with XenSource. link here.
