XCP-ng 8.2.0 beta now available!
I agree here. Package xcp-ng tools for the main distros out there. Fedora, Centos, Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSuse, FreeBSD etc.. Not sure about Windows though. Perhaps an ISO is easiest way to distribute the tools?
The tools are packaged already for many of the distros you mentioned. However this is work that takes time and depends on the willingness of contributors from each distro, so a guest tools ISO remains useful in my view.
To everyone: don't forget to update your XCP-ng 8.2 beta hosts from time to time (
Recent updates include Xen and Linux kernel security updates, the latest

Can anyone point me on where to find more details on this. Can't find anything about it in the latest commit of the kernel rpm repo. Probably I am looking in the wrong place.
By the way, this thread is now superseded by the RC thread: https://xcp-ng.org/forum/topic/3769/xcp-ng-8-2-0-rc-now-available
@jmccoy555 Could I pursuade you to make a post, describing your setup and summarizing any findings ?
@hoerup Hi, I can't remember too much to be honest.
I created a Debian 10 VM with 20GB disk, set up all the stuff that needed to be common for the Ceph pool pretty much following the Ceph documentation using the cephadm method - so Docker etc. This would be my 'Ceph admin VM'
Once that was all sorted I cloned the VM 3 times, for my actual Ceph pool and changed the hostname and static IP etc. I've got 3 hosts with Supermicro boards that have two SATA controllers on board, so on each one I passed though one of the controllers to the Ceph VM and then just deployed Ceph and followed the documentation. The only issues I ran into and any other tips are in the other post I linked to. Now Ceph is all containerised it all seams a bit too easy! Hope they're not my famous last words!! It does like a lot of RAM, so I've reduced the OSD limits down a bit and its fine for me.
