Xen 3.3 Winxp Domu doesn't work
Hi, I'm trying to make Xen 3.3 work in NetBSD 6.1.4 (Xen3_DOM0) in order to virtualize Windows XP for a school project. I have the config file created and the Dom0 configured, however, when I do 'xm create /usr/pkg/etc/xen/win01' the output is:
May 10 18:14:56 xenbackendd: failed to read /local/domain/0/backend/vfb/8/0/script (no such file or directory)
vnd0: unable to open device, error = 16
xbd backend: attach device vnd0d (size 8388608) for domain 8
vnd1: unable to open device, error = 16
xbd backend: attach device vnd1d (size 1414700) for domain 8
May 10 18:14:56 xenbackendd Failed to read /local/domain/0/device-model/8/script (no such file or directory)
Started domain win01
# tap0: detached
May 10 18:14:56 xenbackendd Failed to read /local/domain/0/backend/console/8/0/script (no such file or directory)
May 10 18:14:56 xenbackendd Failed to read /local/domain/0/backend/vfb/8/0/script (no such file or directory)
xbd backend: detach device vnd0d for domain 8
xbd backend: detach device vnd1d for domain 8
After this, I do 'xm list' and there is only the Dom0, so the Dom1 is not created. Does anybody know what should I change in order to avoid the domain crash?
My config file is:
Kernel = "usr/pkg/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
Memory = 1024
Name = "win01"
Vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=bridge0' ]
The /etc/rc.conf file has:
I have already downloaded a Windows Xp iso and saved it into /home/xen
I dont have much knowledge on how to use NetBSD and Xen so any kind of help will be appreciated.
Is the configuration file you provided a copy/paste or a transcription?
If it's a copy/paste, you have a number of errors, including capitalization of many/most of the variable names. You also lack a equals sign between in the 'disk' definition.
Are the variables in /etc/rc.conf in lowercase or uppercase? They should be lowercase (but your error messages suggest xenbackendd is running...)
