Hi all,

I'm currently using Xen 3 with file-backed VBDs and have just setup a
new Xen0 server.  What's the best way of copying the image files across
to the new server (currently stored locally on the old Xen0)?  I want a
copy because I'm duplicating the XenU's.  I've tried scp but the image
files take up their full disk allocation rather than their actual usage
(eg 5GB instead of the 1.1GB actually used).  Would rsync using rsyncd
be better, or NFS?

You can use rsync with the -S or --sparse options to deal with sparse files.

Thank you,
Matt Ayres
