at all."xl list" shows the second VM in the list, but it is marked as only 
having 1 vcpu. If I try to change this with "xl vcpu-set 2" (or any number 
higher), it is just ignored. I can't find any log files to indicate there is a 
problem at all. The VM just doesn't start. It was created from the same 
template as the first VM, so VM1 and VM2 are basically copies of each other, 
yet only the first one will run.I have no idea if I am doing something wrong or 
if this is a bug in Jessie. I will say that everything that I am doing now has 
worked perfectly for years using Debian Wheezy. The only change I needed was to 
start using "xl" instead of "xm".Anyone have clues on figuring this 


Can you please paste the config file of those two VMs?

Also, can you paste the output when creating them with:

# xl -vvv create <config.cfg>

Are there any errors displayed by Xen or Linux in the serial console or
