Did an upgrade to SLES 12,
all XEN guests dissappear !

Something to do with xend and libxl.
Is there any tip on how to convert the XEN guests to the libxl Hypervisor ?
Or do you really have to recreate every Guest ?

Mmm, first search then speak
What I can find ; backup your guest configs :
virsh shutdown ${vmname}
virsh dumpxml ${vmname} > ${vmname}.xml

Then import using xen2libvirt

Since I already started the roll-back, it will be something for another Sunday...
