I am trying to use domU image in my Xen system.
My domU configuration file "xmdomU"is as following:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-"
memory = 256
name = "ExampleDomain01"
vif = [ '' ]
disk = [ 'tap:aio:/srv/xenimage/XenGuest1.img, xvda1, w', 'tap:aio:/srv/xenimage/XenGuest1.swap,xvda2,w' ]
root = "/dev/xvda1 ro"
extra = "4"
extra = "xencons=tty"

When I run:

# xm create xmdomU
Using config file "./xmdomU"
Error: Invalid mode

I am not quite sure what this means.  Went to /var/log/xen and in xend.log got following information:

[2009-07-12 16:05:26 19154] ERROR (XendDomainInfo:97) Domain construction failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen/xend/XendDomainInfo.py", line 95, in create

    XendTask.log_progress(31, 60, self._initDomain)
  File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen/xend/XendTask.py", line 209, in log_progress
    retval = func(*args, **kwds)
  File "usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen/xend/XendDomainInfo.py", line 2576, in _initDomain
    raise exn
VmError: Invalid mode

I am very appreciated if you could give some hints!!
