[Xen-users] Trying to install openindiana 151a


I am trying to get openindian 151a running under Xen.
I am using xen unstable rev 24798 and Debian Squeeze domain 0.

My cfg file is:

# builder='hvm'

 disk = [ 'file:/xen-vms/oi/oi151a.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' , 'file:/xen-vms/oi/xenoi.img,hda,w' ]

 vif = [ 'bridge=eth0, mac=00:14:3e:00:8f:d8' ] 

 vcpus = 2
 memory = 2048
 name = "oi"

 kernel = "/xen-vms/oi/kernels/unix"
 ramdisk = "/xen-vms/oi/kernels/boot_archive"
 extra = "/platform/i86xpv/kernel/amd64/unix -B console=ttya"


The VM starts up when I create it and it appears to boot. It also gets an IP address assigned to it and I can ping it.
My problem is that I can not ssh to the install. I am not an experienced linux or xen user, and I can not think of any other way I could connect to the VM via a console or something...

If I try and run the installation in HVM, I can see (in vncviewer) the openindiana install menu come up, but whatever I select from there causes the VM to freeze after it preforms its initial start-up (............). It does not get an IP address assigned to it, I assume that the OS is not running....

I dont understand how one goes about doing the installation if one can not access the VM through vncviewer or through a remote login.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards Sandi
