[fedora-virt] f10 x86_64 xen VM guests fail to boot on f8 host



Hi,

I've posted this same problem on the fedora-xen list, and the fedora
forums.  Sorry to anybody who is getting duplicates.

Additional log info is available at

It is also formatted a lot better and may be easier to follow.


------------------------------------------------------------------
I have two machines running fresh installs of f8 with the xen. Kernel
and all software versions are the same on both.
Specifically:
[root machineA boot]# uname -a
Linux machineA 2.6.21.7-5.fc8xen #1 SMP Thu Aug 7 12:44:22 EDT 2008
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root machineA boot]# virsh version
Compiled against library: libvir 0.4.4
Using library: libvir 0.4.4
Using API: Xen 3.0.1
Running hypervisor: Xen 3.1.0
------------------------------------------------------------------

And:
------------------------------------------------------------------
[root machineB ~]# uname -a
Linux machineB 2.6.21.7-5.fc8xen #1 SMP Thu Aug 7 12:44:22 EDT 2008
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root machineB ~]# virsh version
Compiled against library: libvir 0.4.4
Using library: libvir 0.4.4
Using API: Xen 3.0.1
 Running hypervisor: Xen 3.1.0


MachineA has two AMD Opteron 275s. MachineB has four Intel(R) Xeon(TM)
CPU 2.80GHz processors.

Both machines are as up to date as possible.

I can boot or create x86_64 f10 guests on MachineA with no trouble
whatsoever.

MachineB will not boot/create x86_64 f10 guests.

The configuration files are created in the same manner, but as soon as
Xen tries to unpause the newly created domain, it crashes pretty much
instantly.


------------------------------------------------------------------
/var/log/xen/xend.log relevant output:

------------------------------------------------------------------


I've also tried moving a functional guest from MachineA to MachineB to
boot it there, with the same results. Guest will not boot on MachineB.

f8 64bit guests will boot on MachineB with no problems.
f10 32bit guests will boot on MachineB with no problems.

Only 64bit machines seem to be borked.







Mark on the fedora-xen list suggested running xenctx on the crashed
domain. Output is as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------

I also finally figured out you can look at the Xen dmesg, which includes
the following line:
(XEN) traps.c:405:d44 Unhandled invalid opcode fault/trap [#6] in domain
46 on VCPU 0 [ec=0000]


The domain does install so the following bug does not seem to be the
cause of the current issues:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/F10Common#Installing_Fedora_10_DomU_o
n_Fedora_8_Dom0_Fails

Any information / help / insight as to why this is happening would be
very much appreciated. The machines are pretty similar, and since the
guests are paravirtualized it does not really make sense for the
processors to be the cause of the problem.

Thanks,
jon
