Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to migrate a running virtual server hosted in a ProxMox host into a KVM virt-manager/virsh host (I wonder if it is possible: Not shutting down but stopping it). I've performed a suspend backup in proxmox (not a snapshot backup), which has generated an archive with a qcow2 file along with a qemu-server.conf file (which seems to have just the virtual machine details). Can I import this suspended machine in my KVM host using virt-manager or virsh?

I can create a new virtual machine with that qcow2 file, but it will boot it. I need KVM virsh to get the "memory" info from the qcow2 file and resume it where ProxMox stopped it.

Thanks for any ideas, Ignacio
