unable to create VDI xen 8.2


Audric DHoest

Question

Hello all,

Xen 8.2 on a hp 360p

recently upgraded from 8.0 to 8.2

 

i have no solid lead why the upgrade should be the root of the issue but thats the most recent action on server.

 

everything went ok, made a few new vms and they run great.

 

while trying to make a third one following the same steps (debian 10 template, 16cores, 1 10gig drive) debian 11 netinst iso.

I get the following error message:

"Failed","Starting VM 'HB40'
This operation cannot be performed because the specified virtual disk could not be found
Time: 00:00:58","citrix81hp360g9","Jan 29, 2022 11:21 PM"

 

I am unable to make new disks, tried to make a new one from CLI and attach it following these steps:

https://joetutorials.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/xenserver-create-and-attach-virtual-disk-from-xe-cli/

 

this is my output:

You attempted an operation on a VM that was not in an appropriate power state at the time; for example, you attempted to start a VM that was already running. The parameters returned are the VM's handle, and the expected and actual VM state at the time of the call.

and of course I can not turn it on, back to square one.

 

in short, unable to create VDIs.

 

Thank you very much!
