Description of problem:
In the Satellite's Reference Guide there is section

    10.3. Working With Your Virtual Systems

And a problem is that it focuses only on guests on a Xen host. Since
rhel6 we prefer kvm over Xen. We should state clearly in the top of
this section that it is Xen specific.

Or even better, we should create similar page for kvm. Mentioning 
the virsh command and it's power.

Slated for 5.4.2.

Comment 2 Lana Brindley 2011-09-22 17:58:54 EDT
Hi Šimon,

I've added an admonition at the beginning of the chapter to mention this:

		This section deals primarily with <command>xen</command> hosts. In &RHEL; 6, <command>xen</command> is currently not supported, and <command>kvm</command> is the recommended virtualization method.

I agree that the section needs to be re-written with xen-specific text, but unfortunately we can't commit the writing resources to perform this task.

Revision 2-4 of the 5.4 Reference Guide.

This will be respun on docs.redhat.com following QA verification.

Andrew, it's definitely there now: http://documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.4/html-single/Reference_Guide/index.html#sect-Reference_Guide-Virtualization-Working_With_Your_Virtual_Systems

And we no longer have 5.4.x documentation, they have all been folded into 5.4 docs.
