Not many people know that Novell actually now maintains a script to make XEN virtual machine cloning easy. It’s located in /etc/xen/scripts/xmclone.sh and part of the xen-tools package.

geeko:~ # rpm -qf /etc/xen/scripts/xmclone.sh
xen-tools-3.2.0_16718_16-0.3

Try it out, I’m sure you will never waste your time with installing XEN virtual machines anymore.

The original script and the usage was also published here:
