In the beginning I decided not to have a XenServer at Home, simply because I wanted to totally relax after work. But because of ongoing projects and this blog I found it easier to have one at home as well.
I have chosen these components :
The system are extremely quiet and the total price was less than $450. The XenServer 5.5 installed without any problems and even the RealTek RTL8111/8168B Network Card showed up and worked. In my Lab I also have a FreeNas & WHS box. Right now I have put the ISO library on the WHS server, and will later try to add storage from the FreeNas box, but for now I will be using Local Storage.

“I truly appreciate the work and the amount of time you spent in creating this amazing book. I found your book an excellent start to the world of Citrix XenApp. What I truly appreciate the most is the step by step instructions in about every little detail that goes with XenApp installation and settings. I wish I had your book a few years back when I first start learning about Citrix it would saved me a lot of hours and frustrations. Keep up the good work!”. Adam Tigris – Toronto
