Hi
I'm trying to migrate a live KVM VPS from Solusvm to proxmox. The source VPS is in a logical volume and the destination is preferably a raw image file .
Any Idea how to do this?

Regards

another question is how can I make the new VPS with the same config as the old one so the guest OS (CentOS 5) has the same hardware/config.
the SolusVM's database is in XML format:
<domain type='kvm'>
<name>kvm120</name>
<memory>524288</memory>
<currentMemory>524288</currentMemory>
<memtune>
<hard_limit>524288</hard_limit>
</memtune>
<vcpu>1</vcpu>
<os>
<type machine='pc'>hvm</type>
<boot dev='hd'/>
<boot dev='cdrom'/>
</os>
<clock sync='localtime'/>
<devices>
<emulator>/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm</emulator>
<disk type='file' device='disk'>
<source file='/dev/vgscsi/kvm120_img'/>
<target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
</disk>
<disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
<source file='/home/solusvm/kvm/iso/windows_2003_sp2_another_cd.iso'/>
<target dev='hdc'/>
<readonly/>
</disk>
<interface type='bridge'>
<source bridge='br0'/>
<target dev='kvm120.0'/>
<mac address='00:16:3c:09:e9:49'/>
</interface>
<graphics type='vnc' port='5916' passwd='xxxxxxx' listen='0.0.0.0'/>
<input type='tablet'/>
<input type='mouse'/>
</devices>
<features>
<acpi/>
<apic/>
</features>
</domain>

Hi,
this should be no problem.
Create an new VM on pve - and copy the hd-image to the right place (depends on your selected storage - cp to filesystem or dd for lvm-storage).
For the config take a look at /etc/pve/qemu-server/VMID.conf

Something like this because of mac-address:
Code:
bootdisk: ide0
cores: 1
ide2: none,media=cdrom
memory: 512
name: kvm120
net0: e1000=00:16:3c:09:e9:49,bridge=vmbr0
ostype: wxp
sockets: 1
ide0: local:120/vm-120-disk-1.raw,cache=writethrough
don't know if e1000 is the right network adapter inside your VM?!
