[Xen-users] Error: Device 2049 (vbd) could not be connected. Backend device not found.

Hey guys,

I've installed xen 3 and xen-tools on my ubuntu server and all seems well, until I try to start a client domain. (running on Linux xenserver #1 SMP Wed Feb 1 21:23:17 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/ Linux)

I get the error: "Error: Device 2049 (vbd) could not be connected. Backend device not found.

Now, I tracked it initially to being that Domain0 doesn't have /dev/ sda*, which the client domains are using as root, so I used MAKEDEV to create the device nodes and had some success.

However, if I halt/reboot/shutdown the client domain, the error returns if I try to restart it, even though the devices are in Domain0's /dev/

Also, if I reboot the whole machine, sometimes the client domains will start and some times they won't. Again, if they do, I can't restart them without that error occurring.

I get a lot of errors like the following in /var/log/xen-hotplug.log

xenstore-read: xenstore-read: couldn't read path backend/vbd/1/2049/node
couldn't read path backend/vbd/1/2050/node
xenstore-read: couldn't read path backend/vbd/2/2049/node
xenstore-read: couldn't read path backend/vbd/2/2050/node
xenstore-read: couldn't read path backend/vbd/3/2050/node

My /etc/xen/server.cfg:

kernel = "/boot/xen-linux-"
memory = 128
name   = "squid1"
root   = "/dev/sda1 ro"
vif    = [""]
disk = [ 'file:/xen/domains/squid1/disk.img,sda1,w', 'file:/xen/ domains/squid1/swap.img,sda2,w' ]
dhcp = "dhcp"

Any ideas chaps?
