Hi list,

I'm trying to get RHEL4 working as Xen guest as described by the howto
at https://virt.108.redhat.com/articles/2007/01/15/rhel4-testing.html.
However, when creating the xenU domain, I'm stuck with the following
error message:

# xm create -c rhel4
Using config file "/etc/xen/rhel4".
Error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

My config file looks like this:

# My RHEL4 Xen guest
name = "RHEL4"
memory = "256"
uuid = "13db28ea-8536-53dc-3646-1f20fcc1199b"
disk = [ 'file:/oracle/qemu/disk.img,xvda,w' ]
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0,mac=00:16:3e:1a:2b:3c' ]
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"

pygrub is able to read the disk image, and when I select the right
kernel, it outputs this:

# pygrub /oracle/qemu/disk.img
Going to boot Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-46.ELxenU)
 kernel: /vmlinuz-2.6.9-46.ELxenU
 initrd: /initrd-2.6.9-46.ELxenU.img
linux (kernel /tmp/vmlinuz.hCVtYV)(ramdisk /tmp/initrd.EfaYhd)(args
'ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00')

The hypervisor is running, I can start a ttylinux image as domU domain
without any problem, so I guess my xen configuration is more or less

Can anyone shine some light on this, or show me ways to find out some
more information as to which file can't be found? xm log and xm dmesg
don't show any errors, nor do /var/log/xend.log or



PS. I'm running xen 3.0.2.
