Re: [Xen-devel] XEN Qdisk Ceph rbd support broken?

This issue with Xen 4.13 and Ceph/RBD was last discussed back in February.

I'm also encountering the problem:

    failed to create drive: Could not open 'rbd:rbd/machine.disk0': No such 
file or directory

Xenstore has "params" like this:


If I set it to "rbd:rbd/machine.disk0", I get a different message:

  failed to create drive: Parameter 'pool' is missing

Using upstream QEMU versions 2 or 3 works fine.

The interesting thing is that access by the virtual BIOS works fine. So,
for a PVHVM domain, GRUB loads which loads a kernel, but the kernel can't
access the disks.
