Hello everybody,

I'm a bit stuck :(

I am trying to setup diskless xen servers.
I can boot dom0 via nfs and setup swap on nbd. that's ok.

Now I'm trying to use aoe for the domU's.

When I try to use the etherd devices the domU boot hangs when mounting
root filesystem
disk = ['phy:etherd/e0.0p1,hda1,w']

But if I do
losetup /dev/loop0 /dev/etherd/e0.0p1

and modify /etc/xen/domU.config accordingly
disk = ['phy:loop0,hda1,w']

then domU boots! :)

I was wondering why I can't use etherd/e0.0p1 directly.
What would be a good way to deal with this? with loop devices?
Did you find out why and how to fix it?
I use aoe and domU hangs too when I select etherd/e0.0p1 directly.
