Re: [Xen-users] problem with xm create

>From your configuration I guessed that your disk will be a real partition having the UUID 94a89174-ddca-4b8c-894c-bb3b7e0c62fa (even though I don't think it would work like that). Have I been wrong with that assumption?

In fact if you just want to use a flat disk image (= one file), you would have to add the lines

disk = ['file:/path/to/your/disk.img,sda1,w']
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"

You may want to look at the tutorial on http://www.option-c.com/xwiki/Create_a_Debian_VM_with_debootstrap which describes how to setup a basic domU.

Hi Andreas,

what do you mean by real partition? How do you create/configure your guest domains? I could change the configuration if necessary.

Hi again,

sorry but I don't know anything about using real partitions with Xen 
guests. Maybe you should make sure that it is unmounted in dom0 ?! 
Furthermore the modules needed to load the file system must be provided 
for the domU kernel (and probably inside the initrd image).
I think somebody else will have to help you on that problem...

Best regards

Hi Andreas,

I use xen 3.4.0 and here is the configuration file for my domU:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd.img-"
memory = 128
name = "virtualrouter1"
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:70:00:00, bridge=xenbr1, ip=, script=vif-bridge',
        'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:70:00:01, bridge=xenbr2, ip=, script=vif-bridge',
        'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:70:00:02, bridge=xenbr3, ip=, script=vif-bridge']
root = "UUID=94a89174-ddca-4b8c-894c-bb3b7e0c62fa ro"
extra = "xencons=tty"

I created this domU using LVM.
