Thanks, I am clear on this now.
Another question, could you help me look at the "xen_read_console" output?
It's in the attachement.
The output of xc_dom_create -Dvmid=1 is as follows:
Parsing config file '/etc/xc/defaults'
VM image : "/boot/xenolinux.gz"
VM ramdisk : ""
VM memory (MB) : "16"
VM IP address(es) : "169.254.1.1"
VM block device(s) : "phy:hda11,hda11,w"
VM cmdline :
root=/dev/hda11 ro 4 VMID=1"
VM started in domain 1
The ifcfg-eth0 is using static IP address, not DHCP.
Seems that the new domain starts with no problem, but I couldn't ping & ssh
Thanks for your help.
