Re: [Xen-users] Guest config lost

> Where is it from?

It's from an earlier xen server which was shutdown and the drives taken out for 
something else. The guest.img had been backed up but the rest was lost in the 
drive change.

It's a xen guest. I know most everything about it, it's IP, drive size, memory, 
things like that.

Actually install one then use it's config or just create the configuration file?
