Problem Solved.
The tun module wasn't running.

Thank you.

It seems this problem disappears uninstalling virt-manager and libvirt, but
I'm not able to start windows guest anyway.

# xm create /mnt/vmstore/windows-xp/windows-xp.cfg
Using config file "/mnt/vmstore/windows-xp/windows-xp.cfg".
Error: Domain 'windows-xp' does not exist.

I know it doesn't exist, xm list doesn't list any window-xp domain!
But I use xm create for this reason! Linux guests run very well.

Hello everybody,

I have a problem starting Windows (and also Linux) guests since at least 1 month so far.
Every time I start my XEN dom0 (at the time when no guests are running)
and I try to start a windows domU, I get the following message:

# xm start windows-xp
Error: Domain unable to be unpaused: an integer is required
Usage: xm start <DomainName>

Start a Xend managed domain
  -p, --paused                   Do not unpause domain after starting it   
  -c, --console_autoconnect      Connect to the console after the domain   
                                 is created
  --vncviewer                    Connect to display via VNC after the      
                                 domain is created
  --vncviewer-autopass           Pass VNC password to viewer via stdin and 

I don't understand why this happens, since I didn't modify anything.
The strange fact for me is "The domain is unable to be unpaused".
Nobody paused any domain!

What does it happens?

This problem happens also when I try to start a Linux guest.
The domain starts paused, but in this case it's easy to restore the
VM running status, since it is sufficient to do:

xm unpause domain_number
wait until it unblocks by itself.

Thank you,
