1.0 Installing and Configuring the Orchestration Agent for Xen VM Deployment in a SLES HAE Cluster

The Cloud Manager Orchestration Server provides data center administrators the capability of providing high availability for Xen-based VMs that is comparable to the service level offerings of other hypervisors such as Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere. This is made possible with the additional installation of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Support Pack 2 (SLES 11 SP2) High Availability Extension (HAE) cluster stack. Now, the administrator can use the Orchestration Server to discover SUSE Linux high availability clusters, delegate VM provisioning to the cluster, and perform life cycle operations through the cluster manager.
