5.0 Running NetStorage in a Virtualized Environment

NetStorage runs in a virtualized environment just as it does on a physical server running Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) 11 SP3, and requires no special configuration or other changes.

To get started with virtualization, see Introduction to Xen Virtualization in the Virtualization with Xen guide.

To get started with third-party virtualization platforms, such as Hyper-V from Microsoft and the different VMware product offerings, refer to the documentation for the product you are using.

For information on setting up OES 11 SP3 on a Xen-based virtual guest server, see Installing, Upgrading, or Updating OES on a VM in the OES 11 SP3: Installation Guide.
