xenserver backup scenario + how to (help)
I have 2 wonderful dl380's to use for virtualisation project for a new campus and have decided to install Citrix Xen Server on both (5.6 sp2).
one of the servers (virtual hosts) will be sitting static to provide a poor mans DR (not fault tolerance) via a backup process of nightly or weekly backing up the VM's from VM Host A to VM Host B. Where upon issue with VM on live host A i would start up VM on host B and take down VM on host A.
What i am after is how do i actually do this? i know that xen has poor 3rd party backup options and i know scripting seems to be the glue to everything in xen. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this or could suggest anything here?
thanks in advance
