I've seen plenty of posts outlining the process of converting VMware Linux serves to RHEL Xen (not xenserver) but nothing much has helped me go the other way. I've tried a number of things including using mkinitrd (works great for LVM) but just can't get it right in this situation. Truth be told, I'm a newb at xm commands but I've gained a lot of ground.
Does anyone care to share the process they've followed to successfully complete this conversion? I have access to two environments currently:
- the original xm environment that has two Doms in it
- a successful vmware build after running vmware converter that I can boot in rescue mode (but not boot otherwise).
I realize also that XM images aren't bootable and need to overcome this (again I've tried but must be missing a detail).
I'd like to experiment with setting up xm for the conversion before running vmware converter since I feel like I've exhausted the process from the standpoint of linux rescue mode after successfully bringing all data over via vmware converter. (but I'll go either way if I can just get a couple of helpful hints...)
