In this scenario, you have OES 2 Linux (Xen) installed and configured on each node (physical machine). You then create multiple NetWare or Linux virtual machines on each physical machine and install and configure Novell Cluster Services on each virtual machine. During the Novell Cluster Services installation, you create separate clusters of virtual cluster nodes, with each virtual cluster node residing on a separate physical machine. This way you have multiple clusters of virtual cluster nodes on fewer physical machines.
IMPORTANT:All virtual cluster nodes in the same cluster should be either Linux or NetWare. Do not mix Linux and NetWare cluster nodes in the same cluster.
You can then create and configure cluster resources on each virtual cluster node and cluster. The process for creating and configuring cluster resources on a virtual cluster node is the same as on a physical cluster node.
Figure 14-3 depicts using virtual cluster nodes in separate clusters.
