When I try to start a Xen HVM guest without VNC, I always get this error
libxl: error: libxl_dm.c:1212:device_model_spawn_outcome: domain 25 device model: spawn failed (rc=-3) libxl: error: libxl_exec.c:118:libxl_report_child_exitstatus: /etc/xen/scripts/vif-bridge add  exited with error status 1 libxl: error: libxl_create.c:1097:domcreate_attach_pci: unable to add nic devices libxl: error: libxl_dm.c:1245:libxl__destroy_device_model: Device Model already exited
My config looks like this:
builder = 'hvm' memory = 1024 shadow_memory = 128 name = "solaris10.hvm" vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0' ] disk = [ 'phy:/dev/main/solaris10.hvm,hda,w', 'phy:/xen/boot/solaris10.iso,hdb:cdrom,r' ] boot = "dc" vnc = 0 vnclisten = '0.0.0.0' acpi = 1 apic = 1 stdvga = 1 serial = 'pty' usbdevice = 'tablet'
When I set vnc=1, the HVM guest starts without problems.
I already have a freebsd, a netbsd and a windows8 running as HVM, its the same always. I just want to disable VNC for security reasons (having it set to 127.0.0.1 for now until I found a solution).
My Xen version is 4
