Thread-topic: [Xen-API] XCP upgrade
I've a sort of production server running XCP 0.1.1 (called ironman),
with 6 or 7 VM. One of this is critical (a DB server). I've another
server, with XCP 0.5 (called megaman) and a pool on it.

- What I want to do: put ironman into megaman's pool but, obviously,
it can't be done because the server has different versions.
- What I plan to do: upgrade ironman from 0.1.1 to 0.5, but I want to
reduce the downtime and I want to be sure this is going to work OK.
So, if anybody already did this upgrade I want to know if everything
works fine after, this means: no VM problems, no network/storage
issues, etc.
- What I don't want to do: upgrade to 0.5 and reinstall all the VMs.

Any tip/advice will be great =)


I did the upgrade from XCP 0.1 to XCP 0.5 yesterday with no problems. Took 
about 10 minutes total and all my VMs are still on the new XCP 0.5 machine and 
worked for me. I am sure people have also done this upgrade as well and have 
copied xen-users to this email to get their feedback as well. Thanks.
