[BLUG] Properly removing a Xen guest
Wed, 11 Apr 2007 11:05:22 +0000
Well that depends a little on how it was setup as far as the disks go,
but the config files for the virtual machines are in /etc/xen. There
should just be one for each domU. If you look in the config file, it
will have a list of disks that the domU uses and you can remove those
devices or files that it references.
On Suso, I have Xen setup to use disk image files because I find it
more convient and in testing haven't noticed any slowdown. I think a lot
of people use volume groups or devices on the host OS.
