Host - Debian Etch
Guests - Debian Etch.
Performed following steps to create duplicate guest, a mail server.
# cp /etc/xen/guest-1.cfg /etc/xen/guest-2.cfg
edit guest-2.cfg changing the settings of:-
disk = ['file:/vserver/domains/guest-2_directory/disk.img,hda1,w',
name = 'guest-2_hostname'
vif = ['ip=guest-2_localIP, mac=00:16:3E:C2:AA:77']
# mkdir /vserver/domains/guest-2_directory
# cp /vserver/domains/guest-1_directory/disk.img
# cp /vserver/domains/guest-1_directory/swap.img
Start guest-2 and login with password of guest-1
Edit /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname, /etc/network/interfaces, root_password,
Restart guest-2 and login with new data. The new mail server, guest-2,
But occasionally I found running both guest-1 and guest-2
simultaneously slow response to keystroke will occur on either of them.
I have to sit back and wait. Please advise where shall I check and
how to fix this problem? TIA
Besides, is there a better way to clone a guest on the same Xen box?
