Thread-topic: Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working

Hi guys,


Familiar issue.


Running pv_ops kernel 64 bit on Debian Lenny


Everytime i build the server i get the same issue. The build goes well but as soon as i try and start a DomU i get this problem.


Have checked the bridge everytime which exists, checked vif config which is fine and also have tried live configs from another server to no effect.


Logs show nothing.


Interesting i have found if i have 2 ssh windows open i can issue xm create domu in one window and while it hangs jump to the other and issue xm unpause domu and then jump back to the other and issue ctrl+c the and the domU will start with networking!


Im really puzzled but it sounds to me like a bug in one of the xen scripts.


Anyone else had this issue?
