KBOYLE explains some little-known details about managing your virtual machines. When you use Yast to “Create Virtual Machines”, it does several things. For example, suppose you create a VM (DomU) called “oes11″. The information you provide is saved in a file: /etc/xen/oes11. That information is also imported into the XenStore where it can be managed. You can then use “Virtual Machine Manager” to make changes to the DomU configuration saved in the XenStore. You can add devices, increase memory etc. but you will notice that none of those changes are reflected in /etc/xen/oes11.1.

Both are mature products that provide real value in their own right, whether you are running a “traditional” datacenter or heading for the Cloud.
