So, I'm trying to convert some domU's I have to use PV mode.
xe-edit-bootloader -u ... -p 2
menu.lst no problem.
The grub, boot, and root partitions are 1, 2, and 3, respectively. I flagged
root as bootable, just to be safe.
Here's the error I get:
$ xe vm-start uuid=ad275e7d-b8c2-673f-6ced-7cfc94eef415 Error code: Traceback (most recent call last): Error parameters: File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 808, in ?, fs = fsimage.open(file, part_offs, bootfsoptions), IOError: [Errno 95] Operation not supported,
Here's some relevant params:
HVM-boot-policy ( RW): HVM-boot-params (MRW): order: dc HVM-shadow-multiplier ( RW): 1.000 PV-kernel ( RW): PV-ramdisk ( RW): PV-args ( RW): console=hvc0 xencons=hvc root=/dev/xvda2 decrypt_initrd decrypt PV-legacy-args ( RW): PV-bootloader ( RW): pygrub PV-bootloader-args ( RW):
UPDATE: So if it's not clear, I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just stabbing in the dark at this point. By dumping the variables in that line of
pygrub, it looks like it's looking at the first partition. The variable
part_offs was an integer that's equal to the starting block of the first partition.
So, clearly I'm not configuring
pygrub properly. I haven't found thorough enough documentation on it. Everything is forum posts with how-to's that worked for one of the major distro's. Or in many cases, the info is out of date.
