From the description of the symptom (works single host but not in a pool) my 
guess would be that xe-unikernel-upload is failing to respond to an HTTP 
redirect from xapi.

Perhaps rather than looking at the logs, it would be better to run something 

  strace -s 1000 xe-unikernel-upload …

— this should capture the network traffic. Or use plain http and capture with
