In my case upgrade Xen 3.2.1-rc5 to 3.2.1 at F8 Dom0 (64-bit)

did allow to put virt-install from F8 repos in work and create CentOS 5.1

DomU . Installer ran  just fine (DHCP DomU configuration).

However, created <Domain> been  viewed in "xm list"

output hanged during reboot  and appeared to be unmanageable by xm.

1. xm start <Domain> hangs

2. xm console <Domain> hangs

online_vcpus gets zerroed at attempt to start <Domain>.

Domain also was brought into paused state.

xm unpause <Domain> didn't help much.

Daemons xenstored,xenconsoled,bpkctrl  were running exactly as  on Xen 3.1.2 F8 Dom0.

Just in case , i also activated service xendomains with no luck

Thank you.

It worked, Thanks Alain.

However, I still have further problems:

1- I still cannot get "Virtual Machine Manager" to work, I feel it is
another configurations problem

2- I created a domain using the "xm create <domain name>" then
I just shut
it down. When I do "xm start <domain name>" it says
"<domain name> does
not exist". How can I get xm to recognize previously created domains.

3- How can I see the Xen logs from Dom-0. Where are they saved? Is there a
specific toold to see events that occur in the hypervisor during the real
