Re: [Xen-users] Trying to clone one client to another host, but would like to configure the LVM disc aforehand

Hi Pasi,

         I am referring to the virtual machines.  I get confused by the Xen
terms client and host. I understand Xen server that runs Xen hosts, and
this is why my Email might confused people.

I have serveral servers that run Xen, and these servers have Xen hosts

Such as:
        Server name: app-044 (runs SLES)
           Contains several Xen hosts on it each running SLES:-

I want to clone the host app-xen-102 onto another Server called app-164.
 The new xen host would be called app-xen-178.
