> Subject: [K12OSN] Virtualized Windows on K12LTSP
> Hello all,
> I have a pretty beefy K12LTSP 5EL 64-bit server setup with about 10
> thin clients attached. This is working fine, but there is one legacy
> Windows application my users need. I kept a couple of Windows XP
> installations around which they can use for this application, but I'd
> like to get rid of those machines. There have been some attempts at
> getting the application to work under Wine, but no luck so far.
> I'm thinking of setting up a virtual Windows XP machine on the K12LTSP
> server. The server is a Dell PowerEdge 2900 with a quad-core Intel
> Xeon E5320 1.86 GHz (which supports Intel's VT virtualization
> extension) and 4 GB RAM. What virtualization method would people
> recommend for doing this? KVM, QEMU (+kqemu/qvm86), VirtualBox, VMware
> Server, Xen? I think Xen is the only method that's available from the
> K12LTSP/CentOS repositories, right? Plus it's open source. I have used
> VMware Server on a desktop machine in the past for testing.
> Is anybody else running a virtual Windows installation on K12LTSP? How
> did you go about this?
