Hi folks,

host Fedora 12 64bit
KVM virtualization software

I have 8 VMs on this virtual machine running different OS. Can VMs be moved/copied to another PC of similar hardware config running Fedora 12 (64bit) as host and KVM

If Yes, whether copying following files,

e.g. copying following files and paste them on the same /path/to/directory

[root@fedora12 satimis]# ls -l /etc/libvirt/qemu/
Code:
total 52

What about if the host is running different OS, say Debian etc. can it also work?

TIA
