Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Enabling storage xenmotion on xenserver 6.1
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2012 12:12:11 GMT
Hi Devdeep,

Does this also cover the following use case ?

VM1	=> 	ROOT	(Storage Repository 1)
	=>	DATA-1	(Storage Repository 2)

Can I migrate DATA-1 vdi alone to a different repository? Or Is this feature allowing the
whole VM (including ROOT and DATA-1) to same destination repository?

Thanks,
SWAMY

Hi Devdeep,

Should this discussion be expanded to cover VMware storage migration or a different discussion
- I wish to see how we can add vSphere as a supported platform for this feature..

I have created an initial draft of the FS here https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/Enabling+Storage+XenMotion+for+XenServer.
I'll keep updating it based on discussion and comments.

Regards,
Devdeep

> XenServer introduced support for Storage XenMotion in the latest
