Hi Andrija,

Yes. But actually I do have to admit, that I am not aware, how more
than one "Physical Network" could be set up for one zone and what that
would mean.

Would it be possible to reconfigure the XenServer Host network labels
without taking all XenServer clusters down?

Anyway. I do not plan to reconfigure those. But I do think, that in
case the KVM hosts do their job nicely, it is very likely, that we will
completely replace the XenServer infrastructure by KVM in the future.

Good to hear your opinion. That gives me courage to look into it more
thoroughly and give it a try. ;)

If you like, I keep you informed!
