This is probably a really simple question, but I cannot quite figure it out.
I have created several para-viirtualised vm's and would like to back them up
now that they are all lovely and configured.
Now if I my machine dies, or I re-install it on a whim, how would I go about
importing the vm's back into a freshly installed box?
Do I just backup /etc/xen or something? Or just the node config files?
[root at rhel5client Desktop]# cat /etc/xen/rh5node1
name = "rh5node1"
uuid = "b328064d-ab64-df76-c638-f9bb1bb63d75"
maxmem = 300
memory = 200
vcpus = 1
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
vfb = [ "type=vnc,vncunused=1" ]
disk = [ "tap:aio:/var/xen_images/rh5node1,xvda,w" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:4f:ce:59,bridge=xenbr0" ]
Or the entire /etc/xen dir?
What if I lost it somehow, surely you can just import the disk non?
Sorry, bit new the xen, trying to learn it and figure out disaster recovery
and all that.
