XenServer (free version) - moving vms from a downed host server cleanly?
I'm asking because my test setup only has one xen host and I'm unwilling to test this on production kit.
Say a host server dies and won't be back for a while, with running vms, what's the best way to go about seizing those vms and shifting them to an alternate host while minimizing downtime and chances of data corruption? Storage is shared.
Is it the same as ESXi (import vm from shared storage, power on and check it thoroughly after import)?
I'm not adverse to paying for DR/HA if that's my only reliable option. A weekend of fixing broken stuff soon mitigates the licence cost.
