Good morning,

I have wrote previous mails about this topic from egoitz@xxxxxxxxxxxxx address (I'm going to use this one in the future for this mailing list). I have been working on adapting XenServerTools for working with FreeBSD, and I'm proud to say here is the result :) . It's working and although it's in testing phase it seem's to work pretty nice :). I can suspend, move, use ballooning, display ip, disk bandwitdth and so… from XenCenter. So, I would like to share it from this mail, and basically know if it works nice for you too :) ; apart from this, if Citrix people does see any kind of problem with the code I would be very thankful too if they notify me in order to solve it. It has tested with FreeBSD 9.0 RELEASE, xen-tools-4.0.1 (port) and XCP 1.1.0-50674c. I think this could be too, a good starting point for supporting FreeBSD in XenCloudPlatform :) (we can help happily!!).

The requirements for getting this working are basically : 

- Run FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE 64 bit HVM Kernel (although should work too with 8.2/8.3-RELEASE HVM Kernel and 64 bit too). 
- Xentools port.
- And you should later extract the tar and copy the files to the corresponding path on the disk. 

After that just… '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/xe-daemon.sh start' and enjoy it :) .

Let me know you're opinions.
