Sure I can give it a go.
I am running fedora directory server inside a VMware host. It works
well. I think the main bullet point of Virtualization is that
reasourse hungry processes are not going to function well in any
emulated environment. E.G. if your server is pegged 100% CPU with high
disk IO it is going to be even worse on a machine with 3-4 other
I think it is ideal for emulation. Especially small ones. I think
somewhere on the internet there is a vmware FDS guest you can just
load up and play with.

I've been reading some things lately -- see, for instance,
-- that suggests that running Fedora DS (or OpenLDAP, or,
theoretically, any Berkeley-DB-reliant app) in a Xen DomU might not be
the best idea. The thread mentioned above has a few people claiming
it works fine for them, but both are at _very_ small sites. Can
anyone either corroborate or debunk these claims? Thanks!
