I know, this is quite old, but here is what I did. *Install the corresponding FULL Kernel. -> SET NEW FULL KERNEL TO DEFAULT ONE -> NO REBOOT !!! -> CONVERT TO VMWARE with VMWare Converter -> BOOT NEW VM. And it work's ! P.S: To install corresponding FULL Kernel, I did use YAST (Since this is SLES), searched for the kernel in the package manager, and ...

I figured out what my problem was and I'm posting it here should anyone runs into a similar issue. In my Xen config I did not put in a MAC address. IE I had: vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0', 'bridge=xenbr1' ] When I needed something like: vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0', 'mac=00:11:5e:5n:2c:1c,bridge=xenbr1' ] The routing for the MAC address didn't expire right away ...

You won't be able to see hardware details from your VM instance. This is a discussion you should have with your provider. If stability is an issue, complain or leave. Look at your contract. If the SLA isn't being met, complain or leave. These businesses thrive on the bet that people don't want to own/maintain hardware. But at hosting-scale, you're ...

For some weird reason the server deided to export the share read-only. So re-exporting it read-write solved the issue.

Quick short answer more to encourage research but give you the idea: exclude.txt /boot /proc /sys /tmp /dev /var/lock /etc/fstab /etc/mdadm.conf /etc/mtab /etc/resolv.conf /etc/conf.d/net /etc/network/interfaces /etc/networks /etc/sysconfig/network* /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/ip6tables-config /etc/sysconfig/kernel /etc/hostname /etc/HOSTNAME ...

Possible Solutions Offline: Strictly SSH Access It is not feasible to inject a binary into a running Xen virtual machine to have it create an SSH server and access the filesystem. If you strictly need an emergency SSH session opened, you will have to destroy the virtual machine then attach its disks to a separate general read-only rescue image that has a ...

A somewhat hacky solution could be to dynamically create an ssh account with the authorized_keys containing the VM owner's public key. The shell would be set to xm console <servername> && <command to remove the user again>. You'd need to think through the security implications of the user breaking out of the xm session of course.

Install lldpd on the Xen Dom0 and DomUs. Then lldpctl will tell you which network bridge and the hostname of the bridge (i.e. the name of the Dom0). On the Dom0 you will also see the upstream switches if they have LLDP enabled, which can also be useful. This works for PV, PVHVM, etc. In fact, it should work for any virtualisation platform that can run LLDP ...

I think the issue may be related to the interface. You should mention the physical interface, not the bridge. for example, i would replace routed0 by eth0 Then i am a bit uncomfortable with -d xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Usually we don't need to mention the destination ip, because we already know it is your public ip. if you don't put you public ip it may not work. i ...
