Question Guests missing from virt-manager. How do I restore them?

Guest machines disappeared from the virt-manager for Xen on CentOS-5. I think what might have happened is that the symbolic link to the guests' disk images was broken temporarily.

I restored the links, but now how do I restore the machines to the virt-manager?

The host machine does not have support for full virtualization, only paravirtualization.

I think you need to create them as a new machine but tell it to use the existing virtual disk file.
