Subject RE: Quick Question about System VM problem
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 17:30:14 GMT
I seem to remember that the command line options were different and there are calls had explicit
hard coded path to /usr/bin/vhd-util that were failing if I placed the new vhd-util in that
location. When we bring a new XenServer online and download to /opt/xensource, I don't think
we remove the old vhd-util, so I thought this was by design meant to work this way.

I don't think you need two versions of vhd-util. If you are adding new XenServer host, just
you need to copy the existing vhd-util from /usr/sbin to its correct locations and it works

Can you share what are the issues you are getting if you use the existing vhd-util in XenServer
