System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

Enabling Live Migration on a Target Host

By default, xend listens only on the loopback address for requests from the localhost. The target host must be configured to accept the migration of a guest domain. The following example configures the xend SMF service on the target machine to accept guest migration from a system named host1. The caret (^) and dollar sign ($) are pattern-matching characters to ensure that the entire host name matches. The host1 name must match the name the target thinks the machine is called, which could be a host name, but could also be a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

# svccfg -s svc:system/xvm/xend
svc:/system/xvm/xend> setprop config/xend-relocation-address = ""
svc:/system/xvm/xend> setprop config/xend-relocation-hosts-allow = "^host1\.?.*$ ^localhost$"
svc:/system/xvm/xend> end
# svcadm refresh svc:system/xvm/xend:default && \
svcadm restart svc:system/xvm/xend:default

You can test the connection by using:

host1# telnet target-host 8002

If connection fails, check the /var/log/xen/xend.log file on the target system.
