move zimmermann to a KVM guest

Description

i'd like to move zimmermann to a KVM guest, instead of its current position as a linux vserver on ottorene.

I think a bit of downtime is probably fine for that. Keeping within the same network cabinet should make it easier to do the transition (avoiding updating IP addresses, and minimizing the time it takes to transfer data).

Any suggestions on what host to create a new zimmermann guest on?

I am assigning to you dkg. If you aren't going to do this, could you assign to the person who will.

Thanks!

I'm specifically asking for help on choosing which host to use. If someone tells me which host, i'm happy to have this assigned to me and i'll take care of the rest of it.

chatting with ross, he suggests that i place zimmermann's new KVM guest on clr.

clr's disk I/O was thrashing while doing the monthly RAID redundancy check. This seems likely to cause trouble during a large disk transfer, so i halted it with:

0 clr:~# /usr/share/mdadm/checkarray -x --all
checkarray: I: cancel request queued for array md0.
checkarray: I: cancel request queued for array md1.
checkarray: I: cancel request queued for array md2.
0 clr:~#

zimmermann is now running as a guest on clr. I've removed the old data from ottorene as well. This should also be reflected in my update to the revision control.
