I have received two errors while trying to create a new domU on Xen. First, I received this error:

Unable to complete install: 'POST operation failed: xend_post: error from xen daemon: (xend.err 'Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.')'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 96, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1949, in do_install
    guest.start_install(False, meter=meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1249, in start_install
    noboot)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1317, in _create_guest
    dom = self.conn.createLinux(start_xml or final_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 2606, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: POST operation failed: xend_post: error from xen daemon: (xend.err 'Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.')

But I have not received this error in a while, and now it seems to be only this error:

Unable to complete install: 'POST operation failed: xend_post: error from xen daemon: (xend.err 'Error creating domain: Creating domain failed: name=Windows7')'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 96, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1949, in do_install
    guest.start_install(False, meter=meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1249, in start_install
    noboot)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1317, in _create_guest
    dom = self.conn.createLinux(start_xml or final_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 2606, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: POST operation failed: xend_post: error from xen daemon: (xend.err 'Error creating domain: Creating domain failed: name=Windows7')

Any ideas on how to fix at least the second error?

"First, I received this error" : When? What command did trigger the error? –  coincoin Nov 20 '13 at 13:49
    
I'll give detailed instructions when I'm back on my Linux box. –  NobleUplift Nov 20 '13 at 18:51
