Hey,

I have a server running Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-37-generic x86_64). I followed all the instructions to install xen-hypervisor-amd64. Everything seems to be working except I cannot forward my keyboard commands. I SSH into my ubuntu server, then run: xm vncviewer , I then get a window that pops up using TightVNC and I am able to connect to the console. The problem is anything I type doesn't get sent to the display. I press "F8" for a list of commands to send "Ctrl Alt Del" but nothing happens... I am connecting to the ubuntu server using Putty with X11 forwarding enabled(Windows 7 Pro via Xming). I have looked everywhere online but haven't been able to find anyone with this issue. Usually people can't connect to the display, my problem is that I can connect to the display, but then I can't do anything... I even followed some instructions to allow the proper keymaps to boot windows bases systems but still can't send keyboard commands. I have tried on other computers too so I assume this is a problem with my xen server.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi, I've similar problem. I've Debian 7 64bit as server, and if I install debian on guest VM I've not problems, but when I try to install Windows 2003 it starts but I can't use keyboard. I tried to use VNC and same problem. Have you found a solution?
    thanks

    This may be a bug : have any of you raised this on xen-users (see http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Asking_Xen_User_Questions & http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Reporting_Bugs_against_Xen). You don't have to subscribe to the list to do this.
