Re: [Xen-users] XCP: Migrating VM from Xen (legacy) to XCP

Also set PV-args="clocksource=jiffies root=/dev/xvda"

One important thing to remember is XenServer/XCP uses xvd/a/b/c/d device names in the guest.

In this case you will have to change sda2 to xvda in /etc/fstab and if using pygrub, /boot/grub/menu.lst. Its important to change this in menu.lst *before* migrating to XCP.

You're not using pygrub so migrating this to XCP wont be easy.

OK, so copy 


to lets say /opt/kernels on the server(use sftp)

Then do the following.

xe vm-param-set uuid=<vm uuid>  PV-kernel=/opt/kernels/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 PV-ramdisk=/opt/kernels/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-xen-amd64 PV-bootloader=
