I want to use unionfs system as xen storage..

However couldn?t find any detail procedure to do "UnionFS in Xen by

That's still not very useful !

Are you trying to have a common filesystem image shared by many DomUs, and use unionfs to allow each DomU to have it's own modified version ?

Are you hoping to do this in Dom0 and export the filesystem to the DomUs ?
Or are you hoping to export the common filesystem (readonly) and run unionfs in the DomU ?

Or something different ?
