G'day All,

I have a number of VMs that I installed on CentOS 4.4 with custom dom0 and domU kernels. All VMs reside on logical volumes and a
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg0/name,sda1,w', ...]
type entry can be found in the XEN configuration file. I have been searching on and off for a week (no success) trying to find out how to move these VMs onto a CentOS-5 system - using the XEN implementation that comes with this O/S.

I suppose what I'm asking is how do I move existing VMs from sda to xvda disks within XEN.
