    OVM 3.x s****

    Doug Davenport
      If you are on OVM 2.x, please do not even consider upgrading to 3.x

      I've upgraded to 303 and 311 - no love.

      The geniuses in charge have gone completly GUI insane and it does not work!

      The only command line options are not even offically supported.

      OVM 2.x took a little bit of work but it was rock solid and very flexible.

      You have been warned...

          We have been running 2.x for over 2 years and think GUI in 3.0 was an improvement, and now 3.1 even more.

          You clearly had some issues, but I don't agree with your statement at all.

            Absolutely - although 3.0.1/3.0.3 were really not that good, but 3.1.1 is really a big step forward. I actually like the way Oracle has organized the GUI. e.g. being able to look at all VMs at once.

            The onyl thing missing from 2.x.x is the lack of user policies, since there aren't any reasonable ones in 3.x.

            Other than that, I am reall happy with 3.1.1
