one item that is needed to support virtualization is the ability to define multiple servers running on one piece of hardware (with things like software versions, IP addresses, etc attached to the virtual server instead of the hardware that it is running on)

even with only one server on a given piece of hardware (the non-virtualized case), supporting this also makes it much easier to deal with swapping out a piece of hardware that breaks as you don't have to re-enter all the software and IP info, just say that server X is on hardware Z instead of on hardware Y (you will have to record the movement of the serial number, and the change in the connections)

I don't see anything in racktables to support this easily, have you guys thought about doing something like this.
