So, I know XCP and FreeNAS are meant to be run on bare hardware, and I know FreeNAS is used for the backend storage on XCP. I know how their ‘supposed’ to be run; however, call me slightly nuts here, everyone else does.
I’m posing this question. Can one install XCP on a system built for FreeNAS, and run FreeNAS on that XCP installation, from the bare hardware?
Suppose the system has 12 cores, 32gb memory, 10 drives; you commit 2 drives to XCP, and want 8 on FreeNAS.
Is such a thing possible? If so, would the XCP contained FreeNAS be viable for XCP storage?
I’m thinking of this theory as a single system quazimoto monster.
