Re: [Xen-users] Backup for Xen

Are you using managed or unmanaged domains?  If you're using Xend managed 
domains you would need to back up some of Xend's state - but I'm not sure 
which bits of it would be important or how you'd be expected to backup / 
restore them.

For domains that aren't managed by Xend (using a config file instead) then 
backing up the disk images and the config file should be adequate (plus a 
save file if you suspend the domain).
