Hi. I am really sorry for asking this, and I know this info is in the man page. However, I haven't been able to do it....

I have a VM running with its nice configuration file, its networking config, running on LVM with no swap. I want to create 200 machines like this one.

So my first though, was cloning 200 times the existing VM and automatize in some way this procedure. However, I haven't been able to do nothing. Not copying even one!!!!! :(

I know that xen-create-image comes with this option:

xen−create−image −−size=2Gb −−swap=128Mb −−dhcp \
−−lvm=myvolumegroup −−hostname=vm01.my.flat \
−−copy=/path/to/copy/from


So, if I have a current VM called client, and its lvm is within /vgpool/client how do I copy it??


Thank you. Help is really appreciated. I am really sorry for asking this.
