What are you XenAPI deployment pains?
Anyway! DevStack is Ubuntu+KVM (by default), All the per commit testing is Ubuntu+QEMU/KVM.. The docs are best for Ubuntu+KVM. If you're doing your first install - I would suggest sticking to that.
Once you have that all figured out, moving to something less documented like XenAPI should be much much easier.
Hopefully the docs are getting better. DevStack should do the XenAPI deploy for you. Granted getting your head around the networking isn't easy, but the docs should help with that now. Any thoughts on the best things to tackle next are gratefully received.
Really interested in what the sticking points are when people trying using XenAPI.
I was thinking about producing an ISO so you can install that to get XenServer/XCP + DevStack in one shot. Does that sound useful?
