Thread-topic: VM keeps rebooting when building via pxe


I am trying to build a Xen VM(THEL 5.3 and OEL 5.5) via pxe boot. I’m able to get the dhcp and tftp servers to respond to the pxe request and the VM starts building. However when it reboots it goes back to building again instead of booting up. Has anyone seen this kind of behavior before? I tried both RHEL and OEL. I think the problem might be bootloader pypxeboot line but I’m not sure. Here is the vm.cfg


bootargs = 'bridge=xenbr0,mac=00:16:3E:35:C7:95,type=netfront'

bootloader = '/usr/bin/pypxeboot'

disk = ['file:/var/ovs/mount/ADB5300DA0664B9C8CBDBAC34BFFC5A1/running_pool/52_vm4/System.img,xvda,w']

memory = 2048

name = '52_vm4'

uuid = '25fd9fa0-e383-4e11-98d8-1921d787547a'

vcpus = 2

vfb = ['type=vnc,vncunused=1,vnclisten=,vncpasswd=xxxxxx']

vif = ['bridge=xenbr0,mac=00:16:3E:35:C7:95,type=netfront']

vif_other_config = []
