Subject RE: 8 Xen hosts limitations
Date Thu, 31 May 2012 16:20:45 GMT
Somebody from Citrix/CloudStack can correct me here but as I understand it 8 is a rule of thumb
and not a strict law.  That being said, XenServer (and XCP) are limited to 16 hosts per resource
pool -- and that _is_ a hard limit.  Other limits are available from here:

Subject: 8 Xen hosts limitations


I see in the install docs that it says not to use more than 8 Xen hosts 
in one pool. I am wondering why this is the case because as a test I 
added 10 hosts to a pool and Cloudstack is managing them without any 
issues that I see. Any further clarification on this issue would be 
greatly appreciated.
