Hi guys,

I eventually gave up and went back to Xen 4.1.4, which works perfectly fine using the exact same install method and Ubuntu domU configuration, but just with xm.

I wrote up how I did the Xen 4.2.1 install here for reference -

And the Xen 4.1.4 install here -

I hope maybe some others could give it a try and see if they also are unable to install Ubuntu domUs with xl on 4.2.1 like I'd been trying to.

Strangely, if I use Ubuntu 13.04 (raring) for the installer netboot, it works just fine with exactly the same configuration.

However, I can't imagine that Ubuntu 12.04 wouldn't be supported for some reason?

Hi guys,

I'm running Xen 4.2.1, compiled manually so I can play with Remus and DRBD, running on Ubuntu 12.10.

I keep getting this error when trying to start up my first VM to run the Ubuntu netboot installer.

root@left:/home/eross# xl create /etc/xen/ubuntu.cfg -c
Parsing config from /etc/xen/ubuntu.cfg
Daemon running with PID 1513
libxl: error: libxl_dom.c:34:libxl__domain_type: unable to get domain type for domid=1
Unable to attach console
libxl: error: libxl_exec.c:118:libxl_report_child_exitstatus: console child [0] exited with error status 1

Here's my VM's config:
root@left:/home/eross# cat /etc/xen/ubuntu.cfg
name = "ubuntu"

memory = 256

disk = [ 'drbd:drbd-vm,xvda,w' ]
vif = [' ']

kernel = "/var/lib/xen/images/ubuntu-netboot/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/var/lib/xen/images/ubuntu-netboot/initrd.gz"
extra = "debian-installer/exit/always_halt=true -- console=hvc0"

The ubuntu-netboot image there is 64-bit 12.04 Precise.

Any ideas?

Thank you!
