    i am now using xen (not yet in production) and love it!:rolleyes:
    What is the easiest way to backup a domU?
    Is it possible to simply copy the domU file(.img) to a second server with scp.
    While the domU is running? Do i lose data?:(

    I tried with the xm save command but was not able to restore the domU only from that saved file.

    Or should I mount the image file and backup the contents?

    What is best practice for this, what do you use?

    many thanks

    Yes. :)
    I haven't tried it, but I think it should work.

    i tried with working xen domain

    It seems to work ok.

    only had to do a fsck.ext3 to fix an error
