Subject Re: Live migration failed
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2014 08:55:38 GMT
Update:

Following this guide for ubuntu 14.04 -> http://softlit.blogspot.com/2014/05/xenserver-62-and-ubuntu-1404-lts.html
I used the ubuntu server edition and then of course discovered cloudstack already has an iso
called "xs-tools.iso" which has the guest additions. I installed those and I can now live
migrate - woohoo!

Something worth noting though is that even though I'm able to live migrate the option "XenServer
Tools Version 6.1+" under the instance's "Details" is still showing "No".

Thanks for all the input people.
