Etch To Lenny Xen DomU Upgrade Notes

Some key things we have discovered while upgrading from Etch to Lenny on our DomU hosts. Useful docs are here.

/etc/inittab

Make sure that the following line replaces the tty0 getty line:

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 hvc0

Kernel Modules

Make sure to install the following package before rebooting or domU will not boot:

linux-modules-2.6.26-2-xen-686

or

linux-modules-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64

DomU Config Files In Dom0 /etc/xen/configs

Make sure you change the kernel and ramdisk lines:

kernel  = '/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64'
ramdisk = '/boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64

Then shutdown the domU, then start it manually from the dom0.
