Subject Re: CS 4.2..1 hypervisor KVM migrate to CS 4.4 hyper-visor XenServer 6.2
Date Sat, 02 Aug 2014 10:29:01 GMT

I have migrated the other way without any issues. The fastest way for me to do it was to create
identical vms on the other hypervisor (including same disk volume sizes, etc). Once the vms
are created I would stop them. Using the qemu-img I would convert the disk image format, upload
the converted image to the primary storage and replace the newly created disk volumes with
the converted once. After that you should be okay to start. 

You might also want to try the citrix app for vm migration, it might support kvm format. Just
google for it, I can't recall its name.

I am figuring out best possible way to migrate from CS 4.2.1 hyper-visor KVM to CS 4.4 hyper-visor
XenServer 6.2 

any suggestions? We're having issues with KVM, snapshot don't work, I have a testing cluster
for CS 4.4 with hyper-visor Xen and seem to be a lot better than KVM
