Xen and the Art of Ticking me off.....



Maybe off topic, but I'm sure if this really is an issue for the Xen team yet. I have a F8 xen host that has been running flawlessly for over a year now.

Late last week I setup a new guest OS (F9) and that worked perfectly. It went without a single hitch. Everything worked fine.

Yesterday I deleted the new guest OS I had just built because the software the customer wants to use isn't supported on F9 yet, so I had to blow it away and go with F8 instead.

Now, I did a 'xm delete mtg' to delete the domain (after shutting down) and then went to virt-install to install the new guest.

But instead of getting an install I get this:

Domain installation may not have been successful. If it was, you can restart your domain by running 'virsh start geeks'; otherwise, please
 restart your installation.

I've googled this and I read where they thought the xend isn't running, but it is, I have 2 other guests still running.

Another suggestion was to shutdown the virbr0 interface and try it, no go. What I don't understand is what the hell happened between Friday and Monday.

Any ideas?
