Re: [Xen-users] Live VM migration

I do hear about guys who change route tables on router (one /32 route
per VM) according to VM migration. I think this can be used, but it
require very tight integration between router reconfiguration and vm

Technically OVS is just switch, not a router, so you can migrate VM
between different ip networks. 

XCP do require to have same 'network' object on source and destination
hosts but no one says they need to have same gateway.
