what I did is I installed xen 4.0 in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (64bits) with kernel 126.96.36.199 and now I want to install window as a domU which I am unable to do.
To create domU, I used WindowXP cd and used dd command to create image and .iso file.
Here is my .cfg file for domU:
import os, re
> > arch = os.uname()
> > if re.search ('64', arch):
> > arch_libdir = 'lib64'
> > else:
> > arch_libdir = 'lib'
> > kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
> > builder = "hvm"
> > memory = 1024
> > shadow_memory = 8
> > name = "Window2"
> > vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=eth0' ]
> > #vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:36:a1:e9' ]
> > acpi = 1
> > apci = 1
> > cdrom =[ 'file:/etc/xen/window.iso']
> > disk = [ 'file:/etc/xen/window.img,sda,w', 'file:/etc/xen/window.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' ]
> > device_model = '/usr/' + arch_libdir + '/xen/bin/qemu-dm'
> > boot='dc'
> > sdl = 0
> > vnc = 1
> > vncconsole = 1
> > vncpasswd = ''
> > serial = 'pty'
> > usbdevice = 'tablet'
this always return device (0) vif not connected. Holtplug Script not working.
I did brctl show to make sure for my vif and its correct, I have eth0.
Sometimes xm create .cfg returns
domain already exist.
in this case xm list shows that domU in pause state.
Any help will be appreciated.
