I've updated my system from debian lenny to squeeze, got xen 4.0 and
kernel 2.6.32.

When I'm trying to start xen (running "xend start" or
"/etc/init.d/xend start"), xend-debug.log is filled with such

Xend started at Thu Feb 17 12:16:42 2011.
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/vendor: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/model: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/type: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/rev: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host0/scsi_level: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host1/vendor: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host1/model: No such file or directory
cat: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/host1/type: No such file or directory

[...a lot of similar lines skipped...]

After that I can see "xend start" in list of processes; doing another
"xend start" adds another process.

xend status exits with status code 3. xend stop does nothing.

Creation of new domain does not work as well:

root@enclave:~# xm create -c test
Using config file "/etc/xen/test".
Error: Device 51713 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

/etc/xen/test contents:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64"
memory = 128
name = "test-vm0"
root = "/dev/xvda1 ro"
#vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:00:00:00:d2, bridge=eth0' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/virt/test,xvda1,w' ]

>From what I've found in the web which can be a problem:

 - I have /etc/udev/rules.d/92-xen-backend.rules, so probably this is
not a problem.
 - My /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is empty, can this be a problem?

Anything else I can provide to describe this situation? Any ideas what to do?
