Hi, I am trying to setup a home VM server using OpenSuse 12.3 + Xen and so far have not been successful in it. FYI: I am NOT a Linux person. but do to the fact that my budget is nil and windows server is it's own can of worms all together, Linux server is my only viable option. I choose OpenSuse because I want to use BTRFS for my /root and all data storage and it seems like OopenSuse is the only distro that kind of accepts BTRFS as good and stable FS at the moment. my server is : superMicro H8DME-8 MB with 2 x HexCore for total of 12 cores CPU and 56GB RAM system disk : 2 x 1T HDD for software RAID -1 Data : 2 x 3T HDD for Data 1x 2T HDD and will have an additional 3 x 2T disks after all the data is moved to the new setup I want OS12.3 as Dom0 on Xen and several VM for specific duties like pfSence VM to replace my router an opensuse 12.3 VM or Ubuntu VM to run Sick beard+subznbs + coach potato + transmission etc. I am currently following the Perfect server guide for ISPConfig setup but have several questions until I am continue. #1. what do I setup first ISPConfig or Xen? #2. in addition to #1 can I / should I setup WebMin alongside ISPConfig ? #3. what is the best option to integrating the server into my home network. currently I only have a simple home setup. a Netgear router from cabelvision providing DHCP for all my PCs with this new server I will be replacing it with a VM implementation of pfSence, so any good sugestions on network layout / config? I do not have a hosted domain, I do however have a DynDNS domain. and will try to use that to access all form outside. any links to good guides will be greatly appreciated.
