[Openstack] openstack with xcp

I would recommend using XenServr 6.2.  As Logan mentioned, XenServer is now fully open source and there is no paid for edition (although of course, Citrix will continue to offer support contracts).

XenServer 6.2 can be installed in "Pure OSS" or "XCP mode" which does not install the few components which are not owned by Citrix and cannot be open sourced - e.g. some drivers.

We will be updating this information soon to make it clear where to look for answers around what has happened with XCP - this is xenserver.org.

If you need any help with installing OpenStack on XenServer 6.2 (rather than the old XCP) - just give this list a shout (making sure you put Xen in the subject so that it is picked up by filters), or use the xs-devel at lists.xenserver.org mailing list as an alternative.

The relevant documentation is found here:

Essentially what you have to do is boot a VM on the XCP hypervisor (Ubuntu or CentOS or whatever), and install nova-compute on that VM, which will communicate with and manage the hypervisor.

As a side note... much of this information is out of date now since Citrix open-sourced XenServer, and discontinued XCP

Hi All,

I installed openstack with three node. Controller, network and compute. Now I installed xcp on another system. So I dont know how to proceed to integrate XCP. Can anybody share some clue ?

 Thanks & Regards
