I have two very similar, but not identical Xen servers.
Dom0 in both cases is CentOS 5.3, with Xen 3.3.1

Server A. Is the production server and has kernel

Server B. Is used for development and has kernel

I have a Fedora 11 DomU that runs on server B but not on server A, I can not find any useful information in any of the Xen logs on A. The symptom is that the DomU stays in 'r' state. If I create with a console, I get the single message 'Started domain x' and then no further output.

At this stage, I would like to find a solution that doesn't involve rebooting server A on the newer kernel. As I would prefer not to shutdown all the DomUs it hosts.

Any comments or suggestions welcome.
