IMPORTANT:NetWare 6.5 SP8 has been modified to run in paravirtual mode on a Xen virtual machine. Running NetWare in fully virtualized mode on a Xen host server is not supported.
You can install NetWare as a virtual machine guest (VM guest) operating system on the following servers:
A SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 Linux server
An OES 2 SP3 server that has been set up as a Xen-based host server
For general information on the Xen virtualization technology in SLES 10 SP4, see the Virtualization with Xen guide.
This section documents the system requirements, installation instructions, upgrade and migration instructions, and issues associated with setting up NetWare on a Xen-based virtual machine.
