    where is windows2003 files stored based on xen

    Hi, I'm new to xen, I created windows2003 vm based on xen.
    As xen is some kind technology of linux distribution. I wonder if I can operate my windows2003 vm by shell? Such as copy/move files on windows2003 vm? I think NOT, but is there any chance for me to see where the files of my windows2003 vm stored in?
    AND is there command line to enter xen vm from node like openvz?
    Thanks in advance for your hints!

    There is 'xm' command if you have xen-tools package installed
    The Windows2003 VM files most likely saved on a separate LVM volume.
    You can check it in the config file located in /etc/xen directory (however its depends on the XEN version you are using).
    Can you tell what exactly version/implementation are you using, so we better understand how to assist ?
    How did you install it ?

    To run Windows you must run XEN HVM

    You can not enter console for HVMs only PV using the xm or xl tools set

    For HVM there is only VNC console

    basically if you run windows under Xen, you need to run in Xen HVM.
    In general you can't access directly to Xen HVM files without mounting the LVM /dev/volumedrive/lvm.

    But he will not be able to simply browse the files in same way as with a OpenVZ server
