I was recently tasked with configuring multipathing in Citrix XenServer 5.5 for use with an IBM DS4800 SAN. At first glance I thought, piece of cake, I’ve done quite a few setups like this with Dell, EMC, and HP storage gear so the IBM should be the same right? WRONG!
Right on the heels of the Provisioning Server 5.1 release Citrix announces and releases the latest version of their hypervisor… XenServer 5.5. This release brings about some MUCH needed new enterprise class features.
