While I am trying to prepare a migration from 4.3 to 4.4 with the base OS switch, I am
exploring all variants of moving VMs.
OVA export/import and export domains have issues and failures so now I am trying backup
domains and fail to understand how they are to be used and the sparse documentation does
1. create a clone VM
2. move the cloned VM's disks to the backup domain
and then moves on to the next topic
What I find missing:
1. How do I move the cloned VM (basically whatever configuration data is not inside the
disk) away from the active domain?
2. Can I just delete it, because 'magically' the OVF store on the backup domain
will contain all VM data for any VM that has disk images there?
3. A matching reovery/restore procdure: Is it really just as simple as moving the disk
back (with the OVF/XML definition silently following)?
In terms of usability I'd really love a clone where I can specify the storage domain
