Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 707602
Section 10.3. is a Xen specific
Last modified: 2013-10-23 19:24:13 EDT
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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 5.4.0 Reference Guide
RHN Satellite 5.4.1 Reference Guide
Slated for 5.4.2.
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.
