We followed the instructions listed at http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~br260/xeno-howto. We are using Mandrake 9.2 on a P4 1.6 ghz with 512mb of ram. We have several issues:


1). On our first boot up into domain zero it says it can’t find any of the hardware (cdrom, hda, fd0, etc.).

2). We get a lot of warnings when booting into domain zero and when starting domains about files that should be in /var/lib/xen or xeno-something.

3). xen_nat_enable doesn’t exist.

4). xen_read_console says it cannot bind to a port.

5).  Our xenctl.xml is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0"?>


6). Our xen-mynewdom file is as follows:

domain new
physical grant –p/dev/hda5
domain start


7). When we create a domain with the script above, we also get a warning about nothing in /var/lib/xen and that it cannot find /dev/hda5.

8). We can initially ping the new domain once it has been started but cannot ssh into it.


We hope that you can shed some light on these issues.


Thank You,
