Re: [Xen-users] xen 3.0 to 3.4 upgrade

Hi all,

I finally made the plunge and updated Xen using the Gitco repo from the stock RHEL Xen 3.1.2 to 3.4.1.

I like what I see and am wondering what took me so long :)

My tool set needs updating as I am not used to managing a 3.4.1 domUs. but my main question is that on Centos (uses Xen 3.1.2), I was used to seeing the domU config file in /etc/xen/.

It looks like xend manages this now and can dump the domU config in an sxp file.

How would I import older domUs to this new format?

I still use config files in /etc/xen on 3.4.1. You can too if you wish.

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use Windows."
Now they have two problems.

Hi Grant,

How do you specify the use of /etc/xen config fils?

And whats more robust in terms of DR, BCP?

Having a config file simply alloewed me to copy it and the img file to a safe location.

How would having xend managing this allow me that same option?
