Hey Guys,

First: Im on Juno with a Multinode Cluster Ubuntu 14.04

is it possible to run a XenServer 6.2 (iso) on OpenStack with KVM?

I have create the Image and modified the property:

| Property 'hw_disk_bus'         | ide                                 |
| Property 'hw_vif_model'       | e1000                             |

So i can install the iso on a Volume attached to the instance The installation routine says its unable to load virtualization flags from the BIOS. So i cant install Windows VMs but the installation was successful.

Then i have create a image out of the Volume. Booting this new image run in a CPU panic and Boot loop.

Nested is true on Computenodes (Intel) I have try with all "cpu_mode" flags in nova.conf (cpu_mode = host-model|host-passthrough|custom(haswell|nehalem)) And i have try the image property hw_qemu_guest_agent=yes which result in a "No valid Host" Error ...

Now i running out of ideas .... Maybe it's impossible...

In order to run Nested HVM guests you need Xen 4.4 or later and an Intel CPU with EPT support (see http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Neste...)

XenServer 6.2 shipped with Xen 4.1.5. You can try XenServer 6.5, that may work, although I haven't tested it.

Nested PV guests (i.e. Linux or Cirros) should work fine in that environment.
