XenServer Tips – HBAs, HA, and HOSTDEVSCAN

In this installment of the ManageOps Video Series, Steve Parlee, our Director of Engineering, talks about:

  • Why we always use iSCSI HBAs in our Citrix XenServer deployments.
  • The possible risks of using HA in a two-server pool. (NOTE: Initial testing indicates that XenServer v5.6 may not present the same problems in a two-server pool as earlier versions. When we have completed our testing, we will post an update here.)
  • A useful utility for XenServer called “hostdevscan.”
