Re: [Fedora-xen] RHEL4 DomU Update Problem



You are correct! Sorry, forgot that RHEL5 Xen sent output in a different direction. All is well now - thanks a million! You just saved me countless hours migrating domains!

OK.  That probably means you are all the way booted, and just not seeing
the init output.  You can try one of two things here:

1)  Add "console=xvc0" to the kernel command-line when booting the
RHEL-4 kernel; that should force the init output to go to the serial
console.

2)  Use virt-manager to view the console.

At least there you should be able to see what is going on.
