NAME

libvirt-migrate-xend-managed-domains – program for migrating xend man‐
aged domains

DESCRIPTION

Xend, which was used together with the (deprecated) xm toolstack
allowed to define managed domains. Those were kept in a separate place
and could get automatically started on boot (as well as automatically
suspended to disk on shutdown). However the new xl toolstack has no
such support. This script is intended to convert machine definitions
in the xen-sxpr format over to xml definitions in libvirt.

Only machines which (their name) does not already exist in for the
libxl driver are converted.

USAGE
libvirt-migrate-xend-managed-domains

FILES
/var/lib/libvirt/xend-migration-done

Migration will not be done again as long as that file exists (the con‐
tent does not matter).

/var/lib/xend/domains

That directory contains the original xend definitions. Each guest in a
subdirectory named after its uuid. The uuid subdirectories can and
should be deleted when the migration was successful.

BUGS

Convertion can only be done when running as dom0, using the xl tool‐
stack.
