We have not tested against xcp-ng. I would expect it to fully work as there are no changes to ng other than removing some license restrictions that I am aware of.

I've tested with the latest XCP-NG (7.4.1), works like a charm, there is no difference at all except the removing of licenced limitations from XenServer. The system worked even when i've upgraded one of my XenServer to XCP-ng (with reinstall Ha-Lizard components, ceartinly), while the other node runs Citrix XenServer :-)

The method is similar (or equal), when you replace a dead node from the cluster. In a nutshell:

1. designate the pool master role to your "survivor" node
2. disable ha (if you don't disable ha, the dead node will be automatically kikcked, but just in case...). The iscsi-ha does not need to set manual.
3. halt old node and kick it from the pool
3. upgrade your old node (when you upgrade, your network setup will not be altered)
4. after upgrade join to HA-Pool
5. install NOSAN package (watch for DRBD master/slave IP-s!) - if your setup changed (i.e. the partitions has changed, then change iscsi-ha to manual, and correct your drbd setup, but after a simple upgrade there will be no changes).
6. when NOSAN install completed, no need to attach SR (SR is already in the pool).
7. install ha-lizard, as usual
8. enable ha and wait for DRBD sync complete

If you done well, you have an upgraded pool member with zero downtime. If you want to upgrade the another node, repeat the whole procedure again.

Please do this tasks first on a test environment, I wrote this as I remember...

I've not tested on 6.5, I don't know the same method is works. There will be more problem (different SR, different DRBD versions), but I believe this is not impossible. Interesting, maybe I make a try... :-)
