Hard Partitioning in OracleVM

There’s two recommended ways to hard partition in OVM now … all are non-GUI and has to involve modifying the vm.cfg file:
1.  with the xm vcpu-set and xm vcpu-pin command
2.  with the ovm_vmcontrol utility with the vcpuset option
 
Technically, we can still modify the vm.cfg file manually but it is not recommended.  Once we pin the vCPUs, the entries will be reflected in the vm.cfg
 
To verify hard partitioning:
$ xenpm get-cpu-topology
