	Canberra Linux Users Group Meeting - 28th October 2010

Date:		28th October 2010 (Fourth Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Antti Roppola

Abstract:	I recently repeated a process by which I conducted a
		brain transplant of a running production server,
		grafting it onto the brain-stem of a donor Xen guest
		instance. This provides a nice, 100% faithful
		testinstance of the production server that can be
		relatively easily updated/snapshotted as required. 
		This time I bothered to keep notes. The process might be
		of interest to CLUG, it's pretty easy provided you are
		careful and have a passing awareness of how the boot
		process is structured. No doubt some smarty pants will
		alert me to some easy tool that does the job for you. 

Venue:		Room N101
		Computer Science and Information Technology Building
		North Road
		The Australian National University

		See http://clug.org.au/ for more directions and a map

Food/drink:	Pizza and soft drink/juice. Come hungry, and bring 
		about $6 to cover the cost of your share if you 
		want some.

If you would like to give a talk at a future meeting, please email me.
