But whatever tool you select will then require you to set up accounts, add users and what not to get going. And you get a ton of functionality that the users will not need and will make it much more difficult for them.
That is the conclusion I have come to today after researchign things.
Hey @Pete-S, Have you run across anything missing in doing upgrades? Honestly wondering 'cause we've got a substantial fleet of older machines that we use with xenserver. Haven't hit any situations where it falls apart, just that some of the older processors are no longer supported. Things still work OK, it's just not a supported config from Citrix anymore since the older gear isn't on the HCL for the newer release.
No, we haven't upgraded servers using 6.x. But we've had issues on 7.x that I'm sure must have worked fine on 6.x. Both on the hardware side and on the software side.
If you run very plain hardware with a plain installation of xencenter, using recent guest OSs, I don't expect much problems with an upgrade from 6.x. I think most installations in SMB installations fall in this category.
But on older systems it's also likely you'll find a surprise such as a VM running Windows 2003 server or something like that. Things like that might get you into trouble.
Rockets have been fired towards Jerusalem from Gaza, amid spiralling tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.
No injuries were reported, though Israel's parliament was evacuated as sirens sounded. Gaza's Hamas rulers had threatened to strike after hundreds of Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli police on Monday. The past few days have seen the worst violence in the city for years. More than 300 Palestinians were wounded in the confrontations with Israeli police outside the Al-Aqsa mosque in East Jerusalem.
