I've read up on VM migration but didn't see any instructions for this, or whether it's even possible. Is there a migration compatibility matrix somewhere that details the xen versions, storage, VM modes, etc that are compatible?

Can I migrate an HVM linux VM from a xen 3.3 server that uses file backed VMs to a 4.01 server and use LVM storage?
I'm phasing out the 3.3 server but want to save the VMs so I'm not worried about shared storage or keeping things in sync.

If not, can I even migrate from 3.3 to 4.01 at all?

Lastly, can I even migrate an HVM VM from a Xen 3.3 server?
