I didn't see any responses to this query. I also see:


which is essentially the same issue. Do VBDs work for anyone on the list?

It sounds like

> XENBUS xs_read_watch: 0

is an indication of the fact that after the right entries were made in xenstore (I can see them on /var/lib/xenstored/store/domain), but xenbus is not able to read events?

# find . -name *end

Couple of questions:

- is there a way to debug xenstored? It doesn't seem to be logging much.
- Could we add some debug flags elsewhere as well (xenbus with debug=1?) to make debugging problems of this nature easier?

A golden "working" log file would also be useful so we can compare our logs against it..
