Re: [Xen-users] mounted in a guest domain?

I figured out the problem about 10 minutes after emailing the list. My /etc/init.d/xendomains script wasn't linked right for startup/shutdown.

First I had to kill the hung vbd with 'xenstore-rm backend/vbd'

on my debian machine I had
update-rc.d xend defaults
update-rc.d xendomains defaults

but it turns out you need xendomains to start after xend and shutdown before xend for everything to work correctly. Since debian gives a run level of 20 by default I just changed

update-rc.d xendomains defaults 21 19

and everything works.

Hi, Charles. I once had this problem. I followed these steps to get it to work:

- check if no vm is using this volume
- check if the volume isn't mounted
- do a lvs to see if the snapshot percentage and size are ok
- do a lvscan to see if the snapshot is active

After that, I rebooted the machine and several snapshots that were
inactive turned active and the volume I was trying to use became
