Xen... Hmmm...

Dear LazyWeb,

I've been playing with Xen, and creating images for use with AWS.

There are a couple of things though that I am having difficulty with
figuring out:

1) How can I clone a domain I have running. At the moment... I am
doing this by shutting down the domain. Copying the file I am using
that contains the file system, and then running virt-install on the
image. This sucks... it works, but it sucks. What is a better way to
do this?

2) Can you create a config from a running domain? Just dump it into a

3) During Migrate, what port needs to be open? What permissions have
to be enabled?

The Xen FAQS I have found all suck from an operational point of
view.... I know my ways of doing these things are not right, and I am
curious to see how others are performing these actions.

Thanks :)
