I'm stumped by the above.
Fresh install of debian wheezy. install params:
netcfg/disable_autoconfig=true
cdrom-detect/eject=false
base-installer/install-recommends=false

Followed http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/XAPI_toolstack_on_a_Debian-based_distribution.

/etc/xcp$ cat inventory
CURRENT_INTERFACES='xenbr0'
BUILD_NUMBER='0'
CONTROL_DOMAIN_UUID='226e9869-72bc-4680-bf98-686dbfcc9bbe'
INSTALLATION_UUID='226e9869-72bc-4680-bf98-686dbfcc9bbe'
MANAGEMENT_INTERFACE='xenbr0'
PRIMARY_DISK='/dev/sda1'
PRODUCT_VERSION='6.0.0'

Then xcp-xapi returned FATAL: Module blktap not found. I installed the linux-headers for the kernel and rebuilt dkms. Now I get the above error and in the xcp-xapi.log:

Caught exception at toplevel: 'Db_exn.Uniqueness_constraint_violation("VM", "uuid", "226e9869-72bc-4680-bf98-686dbfcc9bbe")'

which I can't find anything on. The log file for more info is here http://phosph.re/s2c/xcp-xapi.txt. XAPI will not start right now, and I cannot play with xen as a result.

    Mark,

    I posed your question on the mailing lists soon after you posted here and have yet to receive an answer.

    A bit more from "mxdog":

    "As far as Mark is concerned he should just have to set /etc/default/xen:

    TOOLSTACK=xapi

    and chkconfig xendomains off

    Plus make sure he can modprobe blktap and xen_blkback? rebuild the mods if not providing of cource thats the same problem i had in days gone by..."
