We recently had a power outage now I get this error when I try to start our domU.

VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev dm-0.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Any help is appreciated.

Try to boot the server via a LiveCD and fix your file system via 'fsck'.

If its the domU that is having problems, then use the LiveCD against it.
