Thread-topic: Backup for Xen


We would like to make a backup of our virtualized environments.
What are the needed files for backup ?

In case of host system's crashes, we will re-install the the base OS (with Xen).
And then copy the below xen-related files to the respective directories to "restore" everything to the state just before the host's crash.

This is what I can think of :


Any other directories that I have missed ?
Kindly advice.
Thanks in advance.
