New theme, new color scheme, etc. I’m going to try and work my way back and replace all of my inline javascript stuff with jsfiddle snippets.

Backing Up XenServer VMs via Command Line

| Comments

Quick and easy steps to backup a vm via the command line.

On your host server:

[root@xenhost ~]# xe vm-list
-- Note your vm's uuid here (you can use tab completion to autofill in the uuid so no need to copy entirely) --
[root@xenhost ~]# xe vm-shutdown uuid=x
[root@xenhost ~]# xe vm-export uuid=x filename=/backup/vmfile.xva

It’s that simple.
