[Xen-devel] dom0 system functions impaired after creating domU on xen4.1 running 2.6.32-jeremy

I decided to migrate from my old Xen platform (xen4.0 with 2.6.31-pvops dom0 and 2.6.32 guests) to my new one (xen4.1 with 2.6.32-jeremy dom0 and 2.6.39 guests).

Everything was going fine when, without indication of any problems, "xm create /etc/xen/domains/xy.sxp -c" didnt produce output anymore and the guest didnt start. (no output = no kernel booting, no error message, nothing, zip, nada)

So i went to cancel the process, destroy the domain, retry with xm, try a different guest, but to no avail. (I tried xl too at that point)

Just to se whats going on i ran "ps auxw" ... it hung itself after listing some processes. So in addition to not beeing able to create new guests i couldnt even list my processes.

I live migrated all the guests to another host and went on to "init 6" the affected server. At the stage where is suppose all remaining processes received the signal to stop, the terminal i initially ran "xm create" on popped out 2 lines of text i sadly neglected to copy (i guess some generic error creating domain, or creation cancelled, sth like that) Additionally "ps auxw" started working again and after a short while the box rebooted as expected.

I had noticed this behavior earlier, like 2 weeks ago, but didnt think much of it, since i was working on the system configuration and had to reboot the server anyway.

Does anybody have a clue what could lead to this behavior?

The systems are pretty much what i would expect most xen hosts to be, some linux (debian 6.0 in my case), a current version of Xen and a current jeremy pvops dom0 kernel. (kernel is now and was an earlier version when i first encountered the problem)

Should i maybe restrain myself from using xm to create guests or even from using it altogether? (xl has no live migration and cant xl new ... xl start)

Input would be greatly appreciated.

with best regards
