    Question Error while starting installed VM in XEN


    I had installed openSuSE 11.0 and then installed XEN using 'Install hypervisor and Tools' which is present in Computer -> YaST -> Virtualization.

    After that I rebooted the machine in XEN mode[Dom 0]. There I installed a Virtual machine[Dom U] with OpenSuSE 11.0 Operating system using the option 'Create Virtual machine'which is present in Computer -> YaST -> Virtualization.

    VM[Virtual Machine] got installed successfully and started running in TightVNC. I shutdown the VM and restarted it and it started running successfully.

    After that I shutdown XEN[Dom 0] and restarted the machine in XEN mode again to run Virtual machine[Dom U]. But this time I got the below error when I selected the 'Run' option in installed VM.

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 485, in run_domain
    File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 379, in startup
    File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/", line 240, in create
    if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self)
    libvirtError: virDomainCreate() failed POST operation failed: (xend.err 'Device 51712 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.')

    Could any one of you help on this?

    Have the same problem. In fact, VM is shown in virt-manager as paused, I can start it, but then this timeout comes and the VM closes itself.
