I made some changes to a VBD based Xen server – here’s what not to do:
- Use a password in the httpd cert – if I ran
xm console server I did not see that prompt – needed to use the vnc/gui to see this – entered it and got closer
- Spaces in device names using
system-config-network – eg;
eth0 was actually saved as
"eth0 " – that extra space messed up starting of
"eth0" and other network devices. I will bugzilla this one.
- Pretty GUI’s are not a sign of weakness – this time it showed me what 6 hours of console hacking did not. Score +1 for the GUI!!!

cd /etc; find . -print | grep ifcfg – delete any that are easily replaced – I removed all but the primary IP interface.
Mounting xen vbd img files:
Now if anyone share how to effectively mount Linux LVM from a server.img file that looks like – I can mount the ext3 boot partition, but not the Linux LVM using lomount or other techniques:
[root@server vm]# fdisk -l /dev/loop0
Disk /dev/loop0: 16.7 GB, 16777216000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2039 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/loop0p1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/loop0p2 14 2039 16273845 8e Linux LVM
as Lundberg would say “That would be great”
