Thanks to the excellent video I have installed XCP-NG on a DL380 but…
Where do I install XO?
There are lots of videos showing the build script but they all seem to start from having a running VM
It’s a chicken and egg situation!
How to I make the VM to install XO which will allow me to make a VM?!
Sorry if I am being particularly dull!
If you don’t have a VM at all installed then their XOA version and use that to build your first VM.
OK, thank you.
Can you then switch to that and ditch the Quick Deploy VM?
XCP-ng Center (on your desk/laptop) is another option for building your first VM.
Yes, create the new VM and delete the QuickDeploy.
Or type this into a command line on an XCP-NG Host and it will download and install the open source version that you can run.
Cheers Greg, another solid answer.
I was just struggling to see the big picture:
- Install XCP-NG on hardware
- Quick Deploy the XOA on the new install
- Use the Quick Deployed XOA to make a VM on the new install
- Use the Git script to install XOA on the new VM
- Delete the Quick Deployed XOA VM
- Sit back and enjoy!
Thanks to all, she’s up and running
I wish the supported XOA was a little cheaper, there are a few features I’d like to have but when I priced it out it would kill my budget at work. If I could get an educational discount for small networks down to like $1000 a year, I’d be able to swing that.
