Thanks for testing this, I'm afraid I'm not really familiar with
XenServer or XenCenter. It looks like Linux users are also running into
problems when trying to setup Linux PVHVMs on XenServer 6.1:
He's hitting a well-known bug that's had a lot of discussion on this list
and a little bit on one of the xen lists. I'm waiting for someone at
Citrix to fix this, but it doesn't seem to be a priority. Considering your
email is @citrix.com, it's a little bit disheartening that you're not
familiar with XenServer or XCP -- the only Xen platform where a business
can get support direct from the vendor. :( Please use whatever resources
you can to prioritize this issue as we'd love to upgrade our
virtualization environment to 1.6 ASAP.
From all the information I've gathered it appears there's a regression in
qemu used in XenServer/XCP that prevents FreeBSD XENHVM from booting on
XenServer 6.1 / XCP 1.6. Earlier versions it works fine. NetBSD and
Linux-based Xen installs don't tend to have this problem because they use
upstream qemu directly. I'm waiting for the next release (XenServer 6.2?)
to come out so I can test again as they're supposed to be using upstream
directly in future releases.
Sergey, you can work around this by removing the CDROM/DVDROM device from
the VM. This will allow you to boot the OS and use it. You could also step
back down to XenServer 6.0 or XCP 1.5beta to work around it, but I'm sure
you're relying on some of the new features 6.1 has to offer.
