I watched Hak5 1818 and 1819 a few weeks ago thinking it was the current Hak5 and I became obsessed. Being a noob, I immediately proceeded to build a home lab on a nuC6i7KYK, maxed ram and a 250gb drive. It took me about a week to brute force my education on XenServer and Xen Orchestra. I've got them both up and am running a few VM's. This is when I realized I have this awesome piece of hardware running a headless server. This is where I need some advice: Is it possible to build a front end on the nuc so I can utilize it as a daily desktop while keeping XenServer running under the hood or do I need to install a distro first then run XenServer on top? Don't get me wrong running a VM through console is pretty cool, it just I feel a little stupid buying a 4k monitor to look at XenServer's customize System menu.
I watched episode 1819 recently. I would like to know how you discovered that the Intel NUC is compatible with Xenserver? ...The reason I ask is that the xenserver cpu comparability list indicates Xeon processors only. The Intel NUC (for example: NUC5i3RYB) specifies that it has a Intel® Core™ i5-5250U processor. That processor is not listed in the xenserver cpu comparability list. Nor do I believe any of the NUC processors are listed (admittedly I did not check every version). Xenserver compatible cpus are listed here: http://hcl.xenserver.org/cpus/ Intel NUC spec sheets are listed here: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005545.html I'm actually in the process of buying a new computer, and specifically I wanted to know if the AMD 9 series chip set and cpus are compatible. (http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/chipsets/9-series#) ...thanks in advance
Just a quick one, Is it possible for Xen server to share USB ports with a hub amongst hosts. What I'm thinking is say an Ubuntu 14.04 with a RTL dongle one port of a hub (e.g a 60 Watt Plugable hub) and say a Windows host with USB thumb drive on another port of the same hub - you get the idea ? Also possibly USB 3, if the hub was USB 3 of course, don't think mixed 2 & 3 would work though on the same hub ;)... Dave.
