Re: [Xen-users] Trouble booting domU over NFS
When i boot via NFS I specify NFS root in DomU's config file:
root = "/dev/nfs"
nfs_root = "/mnt/root"
nfs_server = "10.0.0.1"
Probably root=/dev/nfs is important...

I'm attempting to boot a domU with a NFS Root filesystem. I've configured by
domU with a network interface, the DHCP option set correctly, and the necessary
nfs root options. The domU is supposed to run openSuSE 11.3. I've also used
mkinitrd to generate the necessary initrd image with xennet, nfs, etc., and
have this configured correctly in my domU configuration. However, every time I
try to boot it, it seems to just hang. Here is the last of the output:

So, it looks like xennet loads correctly, and, in fact, looking at my DHCP
server logs, I see that the domU picks up an IP address. However, this is as
far as it gets - it never contacts the NFS server, and there's no further
output on the console. Any hints would be greatly appreciated - I've tried
increasing verbosity of the boot process, doing TCP dumps, etc., but I'm not
able to figure out what the domU is attempting to do and what's holding up the
