Preparing XEN for
2X VirtualDesktopServer

2X VDI Agent System Requirements


The use of 2X VirtualDesktopServer with XEN was tested using OpenSuse 11.1 as the host server.
NOTE: Make sure that support for virtualization is enabled from the BIOS. Run the following command:
egrep -q '^flags.*(svm|vmx)' /proc/cpuinfo && echo 'virtualization supported'
and a message should be displayed confirming that virtualization is supported.

A guest operating system (like Windows XP/Vista) must be created on the XEN server which features an RDP server.
Important:
After the guest OS installation is complete make sure that the RDP server is started. To confirm that the server is running, launch a Remote Desktop Client and connect to the guest operating system using the computer name (of the guest OS) and the RDP port (default RDP port is 3389).
