I have just done a fresh install of 11.4, installed the Xen Kernel and then done a full update.
When I go into YaST and then to Create Vritual Machines I get the error:
Failed to start vm-install
Going into Virtual machine Manager and trying to connect to the hypervisor gives this error:
Unable to open a connection to the Xen hypervisor/daemon.
A Xen host kernel was booted
The Xen service has been started
unable to connect to ‘localhost:8000’: Connection refused
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py”, line 983, in _try_open
File “/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py”, line 107, in openAuth
if ret is None:raise libvirtError(‘virConnectOpenAuth() failed’)
libvirtError: unable to connect to ‘localhost:8000’: Connection refused
If I go into Software Management and re-install the xen kernel and reboot these errors go away but If I reboot again it reverts back. Any ideas?
I did do a considerable Google search before posting here and for most it was down to mismatching xen and xen-tools versions which isn’t my problem. I’ll try it again and failing that I’ll just re-install.
