Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438243
Xen Interoperability RHEL5.2 and SLES10
Last modified: 2010-04-08 11:46:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to install a guest with a 32-bit SLES-10 SP1 on RHEL 5.2 Beta Xen. In a
very early stage of the install process I got a dialog inside the guest that
states that I have to insert CD1, well... it booted from it so it must be there.
After unloading and reloading the CD-ROM driver module I could finally proceed
with the installation, but the guest crashed shortly after the installation
process had resumed.
I was able to reproduce it with a 32-bit SLES-10 SP2 Beta release. A 64-bit
SLES-10 SP2 Beta install worked nicely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We use xm here to manage our Xen tests. So virsh or virt-manager where not
involved. We won't be able to do much debugging on this, but if you need some
more details, please ask.
Please provide guest config file from /etc/xen and the /var/log/xen/xend.log file

It's a little bit cluttered. I had no chance to get a clean one because the box
runs other tests at the moment.

The config file that was used to initiate the installation.
The bug was very likely on the SLES side. I just tried the same installation on RHEL 5.4 Snapshot 3. Result:
SLES 10 SP1 shows the same behaviour
SLES 10 SP2 works correctly
And another unnamed one works, too... ;)
I suggest to close it as NOTABUG.
OK, based on Comment #5, I'll close it out.
This bug was closed during 5.5 development and it's being removed from the internal tracking bugs (which are now for 5.6).
