Default Virtualization With Xen 3.3.1 On Debian Etch

Hi Falco,

thanks for your tutorial. I followed it, but guest from diskimages hang in the boot process. I think the problem is here:

Quote:
WARNING
Loopback module not loaded and you're using loopback images
Run the following to load the module:

modprobe loop loop_max=255
I tried to load the module, but it isn't there. How can I compile it or where can i get i from?

Greetings

Default

ok, loop wasn't a problem, but the guest doesn't boot and stop right after "IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver"

i'll try another guest kernel and keep you update

ok, here my update, i used the xen kernel from lenny to boot the guest and it worked.
With xm console it worked but stopped here
Quote:
INIT: Entering runlevel: 2
Starting enhanced syslogd: rsyslogd.
Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd.
Starting periodic command scheduler: crond.
I don't get a login shell but with ssh i can connect to the guest. but there is still a problem that the xm console doesn't work properly.

update2:

in the logfile of xen-create-image i've found these warnings
Quote:
Can not write log, openpty() failed (/dev/pts not mounted?)
....
Setting up udev (0.125-7) ...
unable to open device '/class/net/*'
A chroot environment has been detected, udev not started.
ok, that's all not a problem with xen, so not a probem with this tut

How did you create the guest (I need the exact xen-create-image command), and what's in the guest configuration file in /etc/xen/?

Hi Falko.

If you have VMs on Xen, like WinXP or Ubuntu Desktop, can you access this VM from thin clients ???

I am new on this about Virtualization.

Regards.

Falko,

I want to use thin clients like devonit TC2 ThinClient to connect with the VMs on XenServer in order to eliminate leased PC that i have.

Regards.

So you want to have the desktop in a vm on Xen? I've never done anything like that, so I can't tell how to make this work.
