OK, understood.

Yes. For remote admin, serial console has our preference over the more
conventional Spice or VNC because it's lighter, requires nothing more
than an SSH client, and bypasses all the keyboard mapping issues you get
with the regular consoles.

But if it doesn't migrate, it's no use in a cluster, which is a real pity.

Any chance for a different implementation? VMware redirects to a network
socket, and this still allows for vMotion (i.e. live migration).


Cheers. Bye.
