I'm on a crash course with Xen .... got some quick questions.
Well, my own, self-learning..... ;-)
Hardware is Dual 3GHz EM64T CPUs on an IBM x346 machine.
Using Squeeze amd64 installation with lvm2, all good so far. Using 6 disks
with the ServeRAID-7k presenting 6 logical -- I've RAID6-ed 3 partitions,
the first for /boot, the second for swap and the third for lvm2.
I have seen in sid binary which can be installed via apt-get
The version is the same for squeeze, wheezy & sid .... at least now.

if you have time upgrade and use this I pointed.
Don't have HVM, so using para-virtualization.
I found that I couldn't start the Dom0 machine too quickly, so I changed the
grub timeout from 5 seconds to 10 seconds -- if I start it too quickly, then
it bombs out [panic] and does a reboot. After waiting the full 10 seconds,
all is fine. Is there a setting that would help with this so that the Dom0
can be started immediately?
This question would be handled better at Xen mailing list.
When you reboot the Dom0 machine without first shutting down the DomUs, does
it do a normal shutdown of each DomU cleanly? It looks like it does a very
fast halt, so I'm not sure the shutdown would be as clean as I would like.
You are right I feel (I might be wrong)
My first DomU machine is 1 hour slower than my Dom0 machine, how should I
properly synchronize the times?
Some one should help here.
Thanks, let's hope there are more responses.
