Hello Andrew:
All my guest Operation Systems are bootable and all application running on the Guest Operation Systems are operational. What I want to acheive is to take the whole image of Guest OS including applications to migrate to anohter server which itself is not running xen so that the new server will be fully operational by not changing anything including the ip addresses etc.. I will make sure both will be running at the same time or in the same network.

Perhaps I overgeneralized...

Shut down the guest. Archive the partition(s) that the guest uses. Transfer those archives to the new server. Unarchive them into their new homes. Install kernel/bootloader. Reboot.
