I'm just about to set up ZCM on a new single server (dual-processor quad-core / 8gig RAM) and looking at possible options for virtualization. We'll be running ZCM Standard on SLES 10 - no asset or patch management and no BO reporting (at least not on a primary server!) - for up to 1500 clients (long-term, as XP workstations are eventually replaced with Vista).

We already use XEN for a number of web servers, and wondered if this might be an appropriate and flexible way to host separate ZEN and Sybase servers on one box. Question is: But do Novell support ZCM on ZEN (I imagine Sybase on XEN isn't a problem). We could alternatively install ZCM on DOM-0 and only virtualize the db server. Obviously VMWare is another option.

Any thoughts?
