    Virtualization Xen domain on SLES stay in block mode

    To whom it may concern

    The customer is using SLES 11 SP1 with 1 Xen Virtual Host.There are 5 Domains running on the Host.They only use one domain called MultiGuide.The Domain MultiGuide start up, shows it is running (r), and then change to a block (b) status.I already restarted the server, without any success.

    What else can I do ?

    Hi,

    > What else can I do

    - Check the logs, most likely the DomU's log first, then the Dom0's Xen log.

    - Upgrade the host machine, SLES11SP1 is pretty outdated.

    > There are 5 Domains running on the Host.They only use one domain called MultiGuide

    Just out of curiosity: "5 domains running - they only use one" like in "the other four are for other users"?

    Thanks for the responding.I will upgrade the server to SLES 11 SP4 to manage the Virtual Machines again.I cannot even open YaST to manage the Virtual machines, using Virtual Machine Manager.

    then something is really weird on that machine. It *might* be a good idea to first try to grasp what's going wring, generally, before upgrading: You'd else might end up having carried the problem over to the new version, which might cause even more problems or leave you with a server that cannot even start the VM(s) anymore. At least that's how I would approach this.
