Re: IP KVM... I've tried.... it's a no go. We have them on all our in
house servers, but Peer1 refuses to let us do it there.
I like your ideas (which I clipped out), but none of the boxes I want
to reinstall have LVM and I want them to. Doesn't that stop me from
doing it your way?
P.S. I really would like to leave Peer1, but that's not in my control.
I know that paying for "management" is crazy, but that is what I've
inherited. What I am doing with Xen is going to greatly lower the
barrier to exit. If I had a solution to this "no console" thing I
could do in a day what takes a week.
