xen-2-20050522
kernel-xen0-2.6.11-1.1363_FC4

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

2. start xen domU
3. run 'xm save domain_name somefile'
  
Actual results:
Error: Internal Server Error

Expected results:
domU gets state saved into specified file and is suspended

Additional info:

# xm migrate oxygen localhost
Error: Internal Server Error

xfrd is running:

I'll attach a backtrace as well

Comment 2 AJ Lewis 2005-05-26 13:01:51 EDT
Hrm...looks like I can make it work by creating the directory
/var/lib/xen/xen-db/migrate - any reason that isn't created by the rpm?
Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2005-05-26 13:35:36 EDT
The RPM doesn't have that directory because it's not created by the "make
install" command that the spec file runs.

*sigh*

Guess I'll send some fixes upstream, as well as fixing it in the FC4 RPM...
Comment 4 Rik van Riel 2005-05-30 11:02:40 EDT
A fix for this issue was added to today's Xen RPM, 2-20050530
Comment 5 AJ Lewis 2005-05-31 11:37:43 EDT
Verified xen-2-20050530 corrects this issue.
