Xen Ubuntu VM Install Question
 
Hi, I have followed the Howto on Xen in order to install xen (I installed the binary version from page 2 of the Howto) My Linux knowledge is limited so I will have to tell a big story to explain it :)
Everything went grand. I installed it initially on a Debain system and successfully followed the instructions to create a Debian virtual host, I could log in and generally do everything and anything i wanted within it.
However, I needed to install a Ubunutu image on the server. I found another Howto http://docs.anykey.se/xen-ubuntu/usi...tual-machines/
which detailed how to install the ubuntu system via xen-tools.
This would not work for me no matter what i tried, it always failed on the
debootstrapping part.
So, i decided to wipe the hard drive and go again. This time i started with Ubuntu, and followed your excellet walk through once more to get Xen installed.
Then i switched to the second walkthrough and i managed to get a Ubuntu
domain up and running.
However when i log in to this domain i get this error message:
-bash: no job control in this shell
I cannot use a lot of the tools so i am attempting to get them via apt.
When i run any apt command i am getting a Failed to Fetch message and the
error code (101 Network is unreachable)

Here is the output of my ifconfig on the vm01

root@vmubuntu1:~# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:3E:75:2A:95

Could anybody help me out with this problem?
Or if that is too much hassle perhaps point me to a walkthrough for a Ubuntu
virtual machine install (It needs to be Ubuntu of any version)
Thanks and Regards.

You can try the Debian tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian but use Ubuntu all the way. I haven't tried it, but it should work because both are very similar.

I will try that and let you know my results.
Instead of debootstrapping to the debian instalation, I will try a ubuntu source.
If anybody has tried this could they please advise meof success/pitfalls please.
Thanks.

Yes, that's the correct way. :)

That Ubuntu system worked after all, however after all my hard work to get it sorted, we now need to switch back to a Debain system.. doh :(
Anyway, i have one more question i am hoping someone can help me with.
I have created 4 domains, and on the booting of the fifth i get this error message:
Error: Device 769 (vbd) could not be connected. Backend device not found.

So i went to the /boot/grub/menu.lst and added the line regarding the max_loop
value as stated in the howto and i rebooted. However my 4th domain and any others i try to boot still return the same error.
Could there be any other configuration i need to add?
