3  If you are upgrading from official xen 2.0.6 packages (or unofficial 2.0.7
4  ones) be careful: manual intervention is needed before you can boot into your
5  new Xen 3.0 system. In particular you *must* upgrade both your Domain 0
6  kernel and your unprivileged domains ones with a xen-flavored version of
7  Linux 2.6.12.  Instructions for how to do so are provided in the
8  README.Debian file, as they are useful for new users of Xen too.

10  Also please note that Xen 2.0.6 has a bug and before getting removed doesn't
11  shutdown your domains. This, together with the fact that xen-utils for Xen
12  3.0 is incompatible with the 2.0 hypervisor means that you won't be able to
13  control your domains after upgrading, other than through the network. So
14  please shut them all down before upgrading to this packages.
15
16  If you want to be really sure that nothing will go wrong please reboot into
17  a normal Linux system before upgrading, upgrade from there, build the new
18  kernels, and only then start your new Xen 3.0 system.
19
20  On the good news side: Xen 3.0 is able to automatically baloon down your
21  Domain 0 to the value specified in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp. For it to be
22  able to do so, just remove your "dom0_mem=" option from the xen kernel line in
23  your grub.conf, and also the "mem=" option from your linux module line.
