9.0 Virtualization in OES 11 SP2

Open Enterprise Server 11 SP2 runs as a VM guest on any virtual machine host server that is certified for running Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 (SLES 11 SP3) as a paravirtualized guest. Because Xen and KVM are distributed with SLES 11 SP3, they are mentioned more particularly in the OES documentation.

For a list of the VM host platforms that are certified for SLES 11 SP3, see Section 2.4.4, “Supported Virtualization Hosts” in the SLES 11 Deployment Guide.

NetWare guest servers are supported only on Xen host servers. NetWare is not supported as a guest on a KVM virtual machine host server.

For information about installing and running OES 11 SP2 services on virtual machines, see the links on the Virtualization page of the OES 11 Online Documentation.

IMPORTANT:Support for Xen virtualization of NetWare 6.5 SP7 and later is an OES product feature and is available only to OES registered customers.
