Hi guys,

here is a problem:

XCP host: Xen Cloud Platform 1.0
XCP guest: Scientific Linux 6.3 (RHEL based distro, pretty much the same
as CentOS)


1.) Linux guest with 2.6.32-279.22.1.el6.i686 kernel - VM boots,
reboots, no freezing, everything works as expected.

2.) After doing the recent 'yum update' inside the VM, kernel gets
updated to 2.6.32-358.2.1.el6.i686 version.

3.) Then after reboot, the guest is unable to start. VNC console shows
only blank blinking cursor and xentop says the VM is constantly in the
"r" state: vm_test - - - - - r

GRUB itself loads just fine, when selecting options to boot with older
kernels I actually can get inside the virtual machine. It somehow has a
problem with this new one only.

Any ideas? Or has anyone stumbled upon something similar?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
