[Xen-API] Unable to start a domain with nfsroot (no ip conf passed)
I am trying to create a domU, which has its root file system on the
nfsserver. I put the pvArgs fieds as follows:
where NFS_SERVER_IP is the address of my nfs server, with the roor
partition available at /vm location.
While starting this machine however, I get the following
IP-Config: Guessing netmask 255.255.255.0
device=eth0, addr=184.108.40.206, mask=255.255.255.0, gw=255.255.255.255,
host=220.127.116.11, domain=, nis-domain=(none),
bootserver=255.255.255.255, rootserver=<NFS_SERVER_IP>, rootpath=
And the nfs server can not be connected after this, following which the
vm start fails.
However, if I specify the ip string completely, as
<client-ip>:<server-ip>:<gw-ip>:<netmask>:<hostname>:eth0:off, I'm able
to get my domain up. The kernel is patched for nfsroot support.
I guess I'm, missing out some configuration, that will enable all the ip
parameters to be auto-configured. Can some one please provide some
insight into what the exact ip string should look like in this case.
