[Xen-devel] Not able to boot domU (root VBD not visible at domU) Santos, Jose Renato G Mon Oct 31 17:31:33 2005


  I am not being able to boot domU using the current version of
xen-unstable. DomU is not finding its root disk. For some reason the VBD
is not becoming visible. I am not sure but I suspect this may have
something to do with the fact that I am using a machine with an HP smart
array. The array has 2 disks, but is configured to be accessed as two
independent disks (/dev/cciss/c0d0 and /dev/cciss/c0d1). Note that with
old versions of xen-unstable (changeset 6651, September 7) I used to be
able to create domU without ay problem, but not after I moved to the
latest xen-unstable version (changeset 7572, October 31). I believe
there were several changes on the vbd code during this time, but I don't
know exactly what changed and how these can be causing this problem.
  I am attaching the output of the domU console after a "xm create", the
domU config file and the xend log.
  I hope these may give you some hint of why vbd is not working properly
with my machine. Any help is greatly appreciated
