Question The Perfect Xen 3.0 Setup For Debian - Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.

Firstly thanks for all the great tutorials, the site is a proper goldmine!

I am having a problem installing Xen on a Sun X2100 after successfully installing it on various Pentium 4 machines.

When restarting and attempting to boot Xen I get the following:

Code:
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER
I have no floppy so I hit ENTER and in restarts.

It has been suggested that this may be to do with the added stansa in the grub menu.lst .

I added the following before ### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST:

Code:
title        Xen 3.0.1 / XenLinux 2.6.12-xen0
root        (hd0,0)
kernel        /xen.gz dom0_mem=65536
module        /vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/sda6 ro console=tty0
Compared to the original:

Code:
title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386 root=/dev/sda6 ro
initrd          /initrd.img-2.6.8-2-386
savedefault
boot
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Many thanks,

Finn.

I've had problems with NFS on domU, that's why I uninstall it in the tutorial:
Code:
apt-get remove nfs-common
It seems as if you're having the same problems in dom0 now. If you don't need NFS on dom0, uninstall it.

Hi Falko,
thanks for your reply. I don't actually make it far enough in the tutorial to remove nfs-common from dom0. The first time I try to boot into dom0 (at the bottom of p3 of the tutorial) I get the errors.
Any other thoughts?
Cheers,
Finn.

Did you run this command (it at the start of page 3)?
Code:
apt-get remove exim4 exim4-base lpr nfs-common portmap pidentd pcmcia-cs pppoe pppoeconf ppp pppconfig

Hi Falko,

thanks for your replies.

I don't get as far as page 3.

At the bottom of page 2 I get to:

Code:
Now reboot the system:

shutdown -r now

At the boot prompt, Grub should now list Xen 3.0 / XenLinux 2.6.12 as the first kernel and boot it automatically. If your system comes up without problems, then everything is fine!
But the system doesn't come up ok. During the boot up into dom0 it has the NFS error.

I tried removing nfs-common in the root install, but it wasn't installed.

I did find somone with a similar problem at :
http://lists.xensource.com/archives/.../msg00688.html

Which made me think something might be wrong in the grub config.

Thanks for your help.

Finn.

?
