But have you, or anyone else, used kexec on a running server yet? And
how do I use it, without breaking anything?

Not much. The domU's can't use iptables, at all.
On a domU:
-bash-3.2# iptables -L
iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables
who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
And the domU's kernel:
-bash-3.2# uname -a
Linux spare5.securehosting.co.za 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen #1 SMP Mon Aug
24 09:14:33 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The host node's kernel:
root@usaxen02:[~]$ uname -a
Linux usaxen02.securehosting.co.za 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen #1 SMP Mon
Aug 24 09:14:33 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
So, I thought of upgrading the kernel on both, and see if that helps at all?
