Subject RE: Adding Host with existing VM to CloudStack
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2014 07:04:29 GMT

	 Look my thread "VM migration to CS" -- basically you need to export VM and import after
host is being added to Cloudstack.  The main reason for that is UUID of the resources registered
by Cloudstack at database. Storage, networks, vifs -- all IDs are managed by cloudstack and
obviously you stand-alone host has its own.
	Cloudstack put some files on each host as well. But this is minor issue.  Anyway -- adding
host with existing VM require a lot of manual work with high chance of failure.  I wouldn't
do that.

Subject: Adding Host with existing VM to CloudStack

Hi All,


I knew that CloudStack does not allow to add hosts with VMs/any data existing on host. But,
I need to add a XenServer host to CloudStack with a VM.

Is there any work around to work on my need ??


Looking forward for your help.
