The domain's memory image is transferred.  Virtual disks are not migrated (are 
you using a SAN, NAS, or similar?), and neither are config files.

The domain's configuration is migrated when the domain moves, but it's held in 
memory - it's not stored on the disk.  I believe the state will persist as 
long as that domain is running, and that server is up.
