Hi All...

I'm wondering if anyone has tried to run OpenVZ under Zen? If I could do this, it would allow me to run Windows systems and a Linux with OpenVZ on the same server, which would be pretty cool.

In theory it is possible, with Intel or AMD virtualization supported cpus. I think you would be better off running VMware Server or Microsoft Virtual Server inside of Windows. Or you can run VMware server inside of Linux, and load windows into it, including Vista.

The question is, what is you reasoning? if it is for testing software it will be ok, but I don't recommend double layered Virtualization for a Production Enviroment, there is too much chance of error. Just think of the path your network traffic would have to take?

nic = zen = VM1 = OpenVZ = VMA = application

That isn't a very direct path. And you may run into issues trying to push high bandwidth through that setup.

Well, hope it helps
