Yes, It has worked fine for me.  There may be some danger though. Centos handles it fine.

Subject: [Xen-users] Backup domU image at runtime




I'm running xen 3.4.1, I've a partition with lots of virtual machines mount at /vserver/images/domains. Inside that folder I've all the img disk (created with dd) of each virtual machine.


# ls  /vserver/images/domains


# win_xp.img win7.img ubuntu.img debian.img w2008.img gentoo.img


Could I run a cp or rdiff-backup over /vserver/images/domains when these virtual machines are running?


Thanks in advance,
