Re: [Xen-users] Xen Ubuntu Pangolin HVMs not recreating properly

I find I can do an xm save  / xm restore properly, but not either
xm shutdown   /  xm create
xm destroy   /   xm create
sudo reboot (invoked from within the running vm)

After any of these 3 I cannot login.

So perhaps this is a boot problem?

I am creating Ubuntu pangolin Hvms (kernel 3.2.0-2-generic) with pvonhvm

The hvms work perfectly when created using the console (-c) option,

'xm create vm_name.cfg -c'

followed by a boot from vncviewer to the host machine. Once I select the
kernel I want in the vncviewer screen and enable the boot, subsequent
logins from this or separate shells work perfectly.

But if I shut down or destroy this hvm instance, and restart it without
the console (-c) option,

I sometimes cannot login and consistently get read-only file system
errors when attempting to execute commands via sudo.

What could be the problem here?
