ToDo

Milestone 1

To be sure that the desired OS works smooth and reliable inside Xen, we have to test with a proof of concept that it does. This proof of concept should be preserved in a small step through guide. No CipuX is needed at this point.

To archive this we:

Milestone 2

After we are sure that every OS we want works inside Xen, we know the version of Xen we have to take and the server requirement. Then the next step is to clone this image after joining a domain. The goal is to find a method as a proof of concept for cloning a Xen image without the need of rejoining the domain.

For Linux we make sure:

For Win we make the following (with writing a protocol to be verified by others):

Milestone 3

We should make a discussion about the results of proof of concept 1 and 2 and choose the following:
