The license expiry problem is a known issue with the recent unstable snapshots. It's possible to get around it by stopping xapi, then editing the file '/var/xapi/state.db' - search for 'expiry' and replace the date with a much later one.

When you next start xapi, it'll cap the expiry date to the current day + 30 days so you'll have to do this again then if you don't want to upgrade to the next snapshot we'll be posting, in which this behaviour is fixed.

Hope this helps,

I'll build a new 0.5.0 key tomorrow when I'm back in the office and verify it works. It's entirely possible they mucked around with something in the experimentals and broke it. There are other ways to build a bootable USB key from a Linux ISO but they're mostly a lot harder and a lot more iffy than unetbootin.

    No secret that I know of. Fire unetbootin up, select to install
    from ISO/image (can't remember which it says,
    I can't check until tomorrow), select the device that your USB
    key is on at the bottom, and then do it. When
    you boot from the key and get the unetbootin menu, select install
    and it should be off and running.

        Uh oh, don't tell me you loaded one of their weekly
        experimentals on your production cloud?

        If you reinstall from the CD image, it should detect that
        you have the same version on the machine
        already and offer to wipe and reinstall or let you go back
        to the previous archived version.

        this is from a snapshot.... I would have thought they
        wouldnt expire either

        is there anyway to "downgrade" without a full reinstall ?
