Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428371
virtualization documentation needs to be more specific about limitations.
Last modified: 2010-10-22 17:39:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The Virtualization Guide currently shows what hardware is supported for fully
and paravirt for x86 but lacks information about other platforms and subsets.
+ Systems that do not have hw virtualization support like Intel Virualization
Technology (VT) may only support para-virtualized guests.
+ List of which architectures do or do not support driver domains.
+ Indicate which guest types and OS versions are supported for each archetecture
type - eg.
IA64 Paravirt - RHEL 5.1 or later
HVM - RHEL 3, RHEL 4, RHEL 5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current as of: Friday, January 11 2008
You may need engineerings confirmation on the above details.
The present para-virt docs are here (fresh off my work queue). These will be
incorporated into the new virtualization guide. There is what limited
information on Itanium2 in that guide. Not much else is known by me and would
require additional technical input from a SME to produce.
The previous versions of the Virtualization Guide are not being fully maintained
as the new (and much improved) guide is being re-based and rewritten.
The present version fixes 90% of these issues. A larger fix incorporating this
table (http://www.redhat.com/rhel/server/advanced/virt.html) is scheduled for
release in the 5.3 update.
