Version 1.2 of the XCP migration utility is now available at: http://www.xen.org/products/cloud_projects.html Release highlight is the ability to migrate PV VMs that load kernel/ramdisk from the Dom0(without pygrub). In order for the script to automatically SFTP the kernel/ramdisk to the server( using --sftp ), you will need the paramiko module: http://www.lag.net/paramiko. You can also SCP/SFTP the kernel/ramdisk manually, this will definitely be the case when saving the VM to .xva instead of streaming directly to a server. Changes since 1.1.0 * Implemented the handling of guest kernels/initrds loaded from dom0. These can either be SFTP'd to the server automatically(the paramiko module is needed), otherwise the user can SFTP the kernel/initrd to the server manually if the module is missing. In the case you are saving to xva you will have to SFTP to the destination servers(s) manually. Take note. xapi does not manage guest kernels/ramdisks, i.e. you will need to clean up /boot/guest after you delete the VM that depends on those. Example: xva.py -d centos.5-3.x86.img -k /boot/vmlinuz-domu -r /boot/initrd-domu -n new-vm --server XCP-host --username root --password f0rget --sftp * Fixed some bugs that made --no-apic and --no-acpi not be recognised. Before use, read README.
