"The Fedora team has followed the Xensource model and begun to store all VM configuration details in a database, referred to as xenstore. This enables the rest of the tools to use one consistent resource for reading configuration details, but also serves to complicate configuration changes.

The bummer is that a complex configuration requires the manipulation of the database through a series of command line tools."
