Switching from 32-bit to 64-bit "en vivo" this way is begging for pain.
Backing up your images and Xen setup is *good*. I've seen reports of
people running 32-bit VM's successfully on 64-bit OS's, but I've
personally had serious trouble with running non-rebuilt apps from 32-bit
environments in a 64-bit environment. (Wacom devices, in particular.)

Why do you have to update your server to 64-bit but not your VM's?

64-bit was the request of the boss for the base operating system, but i could install i386 also. 
the  instantaneous installation was actually not for active service. but now the virtual machines 
are running, and i have to switch the operating system cause we do no use fedora on our linux servers at all. 

also you do not recommend to install 64-bit? than i will install i386, i think there would not be such a big difference,or?

thank you Nico!
