Hi all,

So I've switched to Xen 3.4.1 on my Centos/RHEL boxes and all seems well.

A major change in terms of what I'm used to is the domU config file.

The configs are in /var/lib/xend/domains/uuid_#_of_domU/config.sxp, and these configs are much more granular.

So some advice if you don't mind;

1 - Can I simply rename the uuid_#_of_domU dir to something more meaning full like its host name?
I tried but Xen no longer sees the domU.

2 - Can I copy previously created domUs in this new format and have Xen find them?
I tried but had to restart xend for it to see them.

3 - Can I import older domU configs into this new sxp format?

Thanks in advance,

- Brian
