Re: [Xen-users] Stubdom in Xen4.1.2

Todd (and others):

Thank you for the pointer to the page.  After over a week of trying to get stubdoms to work in Xen-4.1.1, the secret was in the wiki page.  One MUST have the following in their config file to make stubdoms work.  Do not follow the documents in the source - just make you add the following to the config file
  • device_model_stubdomain_override = 1
I also have 

  • builder = 'hvm'
  • kernel = "usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
as is documented but the missing was the line above.  Thank you in advance.


PS:  I have not yet tested this in Xen-4.1.2 but believe it will work as well.  I have only confirm it on Xen-4.1.1

I am trying to run a HVM using stubdom in Xen4.1.2.  The file
.../stubdom/README states that I need to set up a couple of things in
/exports/usr/share/xen and then execute /usr/sbin/fs-backend.

I cannot find any program (or associated source file) for fs-backend in
my xen tree or in Ubuntu installation (using a self built kernel.org
kernel for dom 0).  Does this still exist and does it still need to be run?

I'm not sure about those steps. The README might be out of date.
Anyone know for sure?

I know this is up-to-date:

Hope that helps.
