[Xen-users] "No text console available" when trying to get the console of a just created VM from a template on XCP

Hi there,

I am trying to set up XCP on Ubuntu 12.04. I went through the
procedure given in the README file of the xcp-xapi package and reached
the point where the hypervisor seems to be running fine. I set up a VM
using the Debian Squeeze (64bit) template and started it, giving a
Debian mirror URL as install-repository.

Running "xe vm-list" reports that the machine is running, but when I
try to open the console (xe console vm=$vm), I am getting "No text
console available". Here is the tail of /var/log/xcp-xapi.log:

Any idea of what I am missing? Actually I do not know what is
happening when launching a vm built from a template, is it supposed to
start the distribution's installer? Is it in text mode (my ubuntu
instance does not have an X server)?
