Hi

I am trying to install a new node with Centos 6.5 64bit. Every new VPS that I create crashes after starting up. I have been struggling to fix this for last few days but no luck so far. Tried several re-installations. See below please

[root@node1 tmp]# xm create /home/xen/vm101/vm101.cfg
Using config file "/home/xen/vm101/vm101.cfg".
Started domain vm101 (id=23)



SolusVM and xm list both shows the VPS running but after a while SolusmVM shows it offline and xm list does not show the VPS running.


Last few lines from /var/log/xen/xend.log are:

Would need to logs little further, the error states that its restart too fast.
There could be several reasons why its dumping, the most common issues that usually comes us is a device that is defined conf is missing (like sda1/sda2).

Wen contacted SolusVM support they confirmed that the image supplied with SolusVM does not work with CentOS 6. Everything else was fine. I replaced the image and it worked.
