Description Tim Boyer 2006-10-22 21:36:34 EDT
Description of problem:

When specifying a file-based VBD that doesn't exist, e.g.:

disk = [ 'file:/var/filethatdoesntexist,hda1,rw' ]

the error message says

[root@buran xen]# xm create -c myxen
Using config file "myxen".
Error: Device 769 (vbd) could not be connected.
File /var/filethatdoesntexist is read-only, and so I will not
mount it read-write in a guest domain.
