Here is the step necessary to migrate a Xen 6.2 vm to proxmox 3.4

Changes to Debian VM

These are the changes needed by a Debain 6/7:

changes to grub

 sed -i -e s/console=hvc0//g /boot/grub/grub.cfg

changes to inittab

 sed -i -e s/^co/#co/1 /etc/inittab

then you poweroff your vm and you can export it

Export Debian VM

 xe vm-list | grep -i name-of-your-vm

you take note of uuid

and then you can export it

 xe vm-export uuid=xxxxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxx filename=whatyouwant.xva


Now you have an xva file, and you need to have row disk images.

Transfer with some unix commend (scp or rsync) this xva file to proxmox server

Now you have watyouwant.xva in your /root/ directory of your proxmox server

xva files are tar file and you should use tar command to extract disks

 tar xf whatyouwant.xva

You should download xenmigrate by this url
