I had a supermicro server SuperServer 1027R-WRF4+ and a old Dell PowerEdge 2950. In both machines I setup centos 6.5, which is running 3.10.34-11.el6.centos.alt.x86_64. I follow Xen4Cen wiki to setup Xen, I had other servers running Centos 5.x without issues. Now, once I build my vm's dom-u centos 6.5/centos 5.9 both x64, I receive different erros, let me show u the message I receive in my console for centos 6.5 dum-u. xl console oerp-server PCI: Fatal: No config space access function found ipmi_si: Could not set up I/O space ipmi_si: Could not set up I/O space ipmi_si: Could not set up I/O space Something related to ipmi in my server which is enable by default? can be, now what happen is I try to boot xentos 5.9 x64 dom-u: Brought up 1 CPUs checking if image is initramfs... it is Grant table initialized NET: Registered protocol family 16 Brought up 1 CPUs PCI: setting up Xen PCI frontend stub ACPI: Interpreter disabled.

Looks is not finding the dom-u disk. In both cases I'm using almost the same settings: name = "centos5" uuid = "5020979f-8dae-105d-df56-9fb28d377aa2" bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub" memory = 2048 on_poweroff = "destroy" on_reboot = "restart" on_crash = "restart" disk = [ "tap:aio:/ext4/centos5/disk.img,xvda,w" ] vif = [ "mac=X:X:X:X:X:X,bridge=xenbr0,script=vif-bridge" ] The main line of centos stock without Xen continue using kernel 2.6.x, but Xen is using the new line 3.x. Anyone else with this issue? Thanks for your time.
