Re: [libvirt] Domain not stable while created...



Thanks Mr.Stefan

I was getting some errors when i ran like xm create libvirt-ttylinux.conf
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mounting root filesystem.
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
Setting up other filesystems.
Setting up new root fs
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
Switching to new root and running init.
unmounting old /dev
unmounting old /proc
unmounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
------------------------------------------------------------------------

So this time as sure that there is some problem with my configuration file. I googled , then I found some solution to change the ramdisk option by some command mentioned in the following link.

http://www.virtuatopia.com/index.php/A_Xen_Guest_OS_fails_to_boot_with_a_%22switchroot:_mount_failed:_No_such_file_or_directory_error_message%22_error_message.

But after doing this when I restart my process by "xm create..." and "virsh console..." , I get
--------------------------------------------------------------
Creating root device.
Mounting root filesystem.
ext3: No journal on filesystem on sda1
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument

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



Similary when I try other way by changing  the ramdisk option in ttylinux.xml file and use "virsh -c xen:/// create libvirt-ttylinux.xml" , then virsh console domainname,
I get some kernel error
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..............................................................
Initalizing network drop monitor service
Freeing unused kernel memory: 176k freed

netfront: device eth0 has flipping receive path.
ext3: No journal on filesystem on sda1
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So , There is something terribly wrong with my kernel options in the configuration file in both cases, that doesn't allow the image to boot.

Can you identify the nature of the error?

Can You help me out in someway?

Thanks

Maybe try to give it some more memory...

Otherwise I can just guess as to why there is such a difference in this vm running stable. Are there any significant difference
between an 'xm list' after the 'xm create' and an 'xm list' after the 'virsh -c ... define'? Did you ever try 'xm new <vm config file name>' followed
by an 'xm start <domainname>'?

xm new <vm definition filename> -> xm start <domainname> -> xm destroy <domainname> -> xm delete <domainname>

is similar to

virsh ... define ->  virsh start <domainname> -> virsh destroy <domainname> -> virsh undefine <domainname>
