Re: [Xen-API] Snapshot causes disk errors and VM crashes

(Sorry, I will try not to. I always set mailing lists up to reply-to the list, not the poster, perhaps someone can suggest this to the admins!)

Where should I look now? I am relatively new to Xen but am going to be admin for this system eventually so needo t know these things :)

I see lots of errors like the following:

Nov 20 09:39:21 kalimantan tapdisk[1899]: ERROR: errno -14 at vhd_complete: /var/run/sr-mount/34ff5733-1e1d-dc84-137e-95c849222ca4/2f6a71be-c1e7-4463-a77c-0d0e627745a3.vhd: op: 5, lsec: 33456128, secs: 8, nbytes: 4096, blk: 8168, blk_offset: 4294967295

Which most certainly lead to the VM experiencing I/O errors. errno -14 is EFAULT (bad address) which is returned to tapdisk by some fairly low level function, possible some system call, unfortunately there isn't more information related to that.

Can you check your logs for anything of interest around that time?
