We have an old 2000 machine with some data that we can't get rid of yet.
the machine is taking up way too much space for the amount of data it holds and
the frequency in which the data is accessed.

so, i want to do a p2v migration.
using knoppix i have dd'd the whole hda drive and moved the data to an
image file
on the xen server.  then i created a lvm volume that is large enough
to hold the  hda
image file.  I then dd'd the image file onto the lvm volume.

now following the instructions on
i set up the following config file

kernel = "/usr/lib/xen-ioemu-3.0/boot/hvmloader"
memory = 512
name = "windows2000"
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0' ]
disk = ['phy:/dev/vg/lvm-volume,ioemu:hda,w']
device_model ='/usr/lib/xen-ioemu-3.0/bin/qemu-dm'

i try to create the xen image and i get

Using config file "/xen/domUs/windows2000/config".
VNC= 1
Unexpected error: <type 'exceptions.OSError'>

Please report to xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

in make_domain
    os.kill(vncpid, signal.SIGKILL)
OSError: [Errno 3] No such process

i have no clue what this means...

the xen-server is a ubuntu 7.04 SERVER with xen 3.0.3.
it isn't running X so i want the vm to start a vnc server
so i can connect to it using vnc to get the console.
