You can't export the same vbd twice r/w, and maybe not even r/o, I

You need a cluster file system like GFS, OCFS, etc., or just NFS.

This was a theory I had; I tried exporting the filesystem r/w from xm-manager and r/o from the other vms, but until I changed it to r/w across the board from all machines, the vms refused to boot at all - fsck would hang the bootup complaining of filesystem inconsistencies.

I'd not considered a clustered filesystem - thank you for the suggestion.
