question about xen-tools versions

Mark Felder-4
Hi guys,

Right now sysutils/xen-tools is on version 4.0.1. The latest version  
available in the 4.0.x branch is 4.0.4 and there's also 4.1.3 available.  
Is anyone here close enough to the Xen project that they might know what  
the difference is or if it's safe to run 4.1.3 tools everywhere? If so,  
I'll get the port updated to 4.1.3.


Thanks!

Hi,

What exactly you need doing?. I explain... Basically Xen-tools are used for writting to Xenstore database through Xenstored at dom0. If you execute a write and a read for the records of a concretely vm and from it (and same test from dom0 for the vm records) and changes are seen from the own vm and from dom0 with they're Xen-tools nothing should be worring at all. Apart from this they don't do nothing else... Unless nothing significant I remember now... The important part is the kernel related one.

So if you administer you're FreeBSD machine as should (update, use it properly and so...) nothing should happen if previous test indicated has succeded. Remember you can always backup you're actual Xentools with a pkg_create -Rb nameofxentoolsport before performing the upgrade.

Sorry Mark,

Are you talking about updating the port at cvs?? Well, I assume there
shouldn't be any kind of problem as far as mentioned tests succeed....
but perhaps you could ask it at xen community mailing lists too... I
thought you were basically talking about upgrading the version of you're
port with cvsup... and that newer versions to be available now in cvs
for the port... just that... anyway... I think that said tests would be
enough for seeing if it works... but (because of talking about upgrading
in cvs machines the port version) it should be tested minimally against
last Xen 3, actual Xen 4 systems....

Regards,
