specify the root="/dev/sdd" in your your config file. Still a lot of things u have to do. First try to read some documents. Read a xen user manual. This would be a good starting point.

Hi all,
Here are the things that I tried to do:
Created a volume group:
        # vgcreate /dev/sdd/ VG
        # lvcreate -L4096M -n myvmdisk1 VG
Created a filesystem, mounted and populated it.
         # mkfs -t ext3 /dev/VG/myvmdisk1
        # mount /dev/VG/myvmdisk1 /mnt
        # cp -ax / /mnt
        # umount /mnt
Now in my configuration file I did
        disk = [ 'phy:VG/myvmdisk1,sdd,w' ]
I tried to create the VM through xm command:
        xm create -c xmexample  vmid=4 pci=0x:0x.0 ip=x.x.x.x netmask=x.x.x.x dhcp=off dns=<name> gateway=x.x.x.x                hostname=<hostname>

The DomU creation goes fine and it shows on the xm list output.
But when I try to connect to the console it panic:
        VFS: Cannot open root device "sdd" or unknown-block(2,0)
        Please append a correct "root=" boot option
        Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)
And the DomU crashes.

Can anyone suggest me what might be the problem?
Anticipating a quick reply.

Thanks and regards
