thank you for your help. it seems more complicated than vmware esxi
I am going to try it. hanccocka, it seems you have have a lot of experience with both vmware and xenserver, which one do you prefer? especially for a small environment? The reason I want to try xenserver is that I was just running 3 vm on the hp ml350 g6, but since then the server's fan is louder than before, even when I left only 1 vm running.... so I just want to try out xenserver and see the difference. your thoughts will be gratly appreciated.

It depends on your experience, Xen is more Linux based. ESXi is now free of the Linux Service console.

Admins prefer different systems, Unix and Linux Ops prefer Xen, non Linux Ops prefer ESXi.

Both are very good Hypervisors.

RDM support is easier in ESXi.

You could try the HP OEM version of ESXi, if it helps, also check if the ML350 G6 is a supported server on the HCL, fast fans sounds like an Agent is not registering. Often when VMware version is used and not the HP OEM version.

As for which I prefer, Ill leave you to guess......I think the clues are there?

I actually installed the one from HP... so in this case, the agent should already be registered?

Try to add the second disc vrom XenCenter.
right-click the server, select new SR -> Hardware HBA and look if you can see your second disk.
