Hello there.

I had cause to force shutdown a vm recently and on attempting to restart it I get :

Error parameters: , Failed to load VDI [opterr=Failed load VDI information /var/run/sr-mount/0554f47c-1a12-9bd1-ea9b-d2b68984f0ed/e82a1032-5a0c-4ff7-96cf-1f62f32938db.vhd]

The VDI is on a shared NFS repository, other vm's came back up no problem.

Any ideas what to try anyone?

Thanks in advance,


NFS is sideways. Start at the low layers on the host with the NFS share and make sure everything is good there first. For instance if you have more than one NFS mount or you change the mount, or it doesn't mount up etc. you will get these errors. I got this when I had an SR connected and I shut down NFS, renamed the export and started it back up. The SR sat there twitching until I realised what I did.
