Steps to Using Xen and Openstack
I'm setting up my first Openstack cloud on RHEL 6.5, 1 controller box, 1 network box, 3 compute boxes. When it came to selection of a hypervisor, i was recommended xen. So now I have questions on the compute servers that I've not been able to find with lots of research:
Order of installation: do I install Xen first on the compute hardware? If so, how do I install RHEL 6.5 on it? And is that first VM considered to be my "real" compute box, in terms of configuring Openstack?
I just need to get a conceptual handle on this, as nothing really comes out and SAYS anything, and I've seen so many diagrams I'm totally lost.
