is it possible to install 2 Windows as domU ?
I've 1 instance of Win2003 installed and all is good.
I'm copying the config file, change domU name, disk and i can't start this
second DomU :(

What can be the solution please ?


You can have as many windows domUs as you want, I have 14 of them running right now.
How did you copy the DomU file or partition itself?
If you're copying a windows image to a new machine you need to sysprep it first, after that you can dd from one volume to another.

For example, dd if=wintest1.liquidweb.com of=wintest2.liquidweb.com bs=1M

As long as the two volumes are the same size it should work fine. You can even mount them using ntfs-3g and make changes to the SIF file if you need to.
