Subject RE: Migrating existing VMs into Cloudstack
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 08:02:30 GMT
Hi John,

You simply need to export the VMs from the existing XenServer, then import them into CloudStack
by first adding them as a Template, then deploying a new VM based on the Template.

Subject: Migrating existing VMs into Cloudstack

Good morning guys,

What is the best process to follow for importing existing Xenserver Virtual Machines from
their native hosts into apache cloudstack?

I have a couple of VM’s running on some old Xenserver5 hosts that I would like to bring
into the cloud, but struggling to find a documented process that I can attempt.

Thanks guys
