[Fedora-xen] Re: unionfs question



Christoph Höger wrote:
I have a more general question about unionfs:
I want to build a xen machine with a save base-image and a temporary write image that can be saved or thrown away on demand. So I thought about using unionfs to mount both these images as /. The problem is: unionfs does not mount images but directories that are already mounted. So I would need to mount those two images somewhere else. Obviuosly this would happen somewhere above / (e.g. /workimage and /rootimage). Could unionfs handle this?
Or is there even a better way?

LVM + snapshots.

BTW, there is a fedora-xen list for discussion of Xen issues.
