Is it possible to run the XenServer 6 as a guest on Hyper-v

Hi,

Is it possible to run XenServer 6 as a guest on Hyper-v. After the install I should be able to run the Linux integration tools on the XenServer and have it running as a guest. The aim is to then install the Access Gateway VPX. Is this possible or am I dreaming?

It may be possible to run XenServer within Hyper-V.  I know you can run XenServer within VMware Workstation.  Hyper-V and XenServer share a lot in common.  Even if XS will run as a VM within Hyper-V, I seriously doubt you will be able to get the AG VPX to work.  You would be going thru the VPX networking stuff which then goes thru the XenServer tools which go thru the XenServer "host" which will then go thru the Hyper-V integration tools which go thru the Hyper-V host.

Of course, there is only one way to find out for sure if this will work!  Try it.

There is a tool that can import ovf to Hyper-V. Check out Citrix Project Kensho http://community.citrix.com/display/xs/Kensho

Long story short - you don't have to run XenServer just for CAG image, you can convert this image and run it in your Hyper-V environment.

What about the integration tools (like for linux) for for the CAG image? Do these need to be installed as well on the CAG? It's one thing to be able to host the CAG but it's another to get it to communicate with the rest of the Virtual machines on the Virtual VLAN

Currently we are virtualizing several Debian servers on hyper-v (netflow collectors, proxy for 1000+ users, antivirus and zabbix) without any integration tools. Everything is fine, except disk operations - around 40mbit/s for buffered disk reads, but as far as I understand it shouldn't be a problem for you.
