Personally, I'd simply create a logical volume the same size as the image based disk (or bigger if you feel like expanding) and dd it over.

Hi, I'm having some problems converting an image based domu to lvm based. This is what I've done so far.

lvcreate -L 5000M -n vmsname /dev/vg0
mkfs.ext3 /dev/vg0/vmsname
lvcreate -L 1000M -n vmsswap /dev/vg0
mkswap /dev/vg0/vmsswap

I then used kpartx to expand/mount the image, and with the new lvm mounted I copied the contents of the image into the lvm. I then dismounted the lvm and the image.

I configured the config as follows

name = "vmsname"
memory = "256"
disk = ['phy:/dev/VolGroup01/vmsname,hda1,w', 'phy:/dev/VolGroup01/vmsname,hda2,w' ]
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0', ]

When i try to create the vms it hangs until I control+c it. Anyone have any insight? Thanks in advance.
