using network block device (nbd) as the guest disk

sanjay kushwaha
Hi Folks,
I am trying to use a remote disk as the guest VM's root file system. I see that I need to specify nbd instead of phy as the disk value in the guest config file. I also see that hotplug scripts try to call "nbd-client"  (/etc/xen/scripts/block-nbd) utility to make a connection to the remote disk. I am however not able to find this "nbd-client" utility. Also I am not able to find the corresponding server (e.g. nbd-server) utility.

Could anyone please let me know if using nbd works with Xen and if yes, how to get it to work (where to get the client and server utilities).
