3.0 Using NetWare Traditional Volumes in a Virtual Guest Server Environment

NetWare® Traditional volumes can be used on NetWare guest servers in a virtualized environment just as they are on physical NetWare servers. Novell® Storage Services™ (NSS) is responsible for managing virtual devices for the virtual machine, which parallels the NSS role for storage management on physical servers. For information, see Using NSS in a Virtualization Environment in the NW 6.5 SP8: NSS File System Administration Guide.

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

For information on setting up virtualized NetWare, see Installing and Managing NetWare on a Xen-based VM in the OES 2 SP2: Installation Guide guide.
