    Eric, You'll get more help debugging situations like this from the xen-users mailing list. There are a lot more experienced eyes there which can identify problems fairly quickly. That said, have you made sure that your firewall rules will allow access to the ports in question? The following SUSE doc talks about this using the xm/xen...

    Sebastien, Very interesting! Any chance I can ask you to do a Wiki page on this subject? It could be quite valuable for others wanting the same result. Russ...

    Eric, I haven't done major tweaking to VNC parameters (never needed to), but this is my understanding: VNC support in Dom0 is built into the system. Parameters to adjust VNC on Dom0 should be in the Xen Project configuration, rather than the Debian files, AFAIK. There is a slightly dated, but still useful, ebook which talks ab...

    Sebastien, What exactly is the end point of all this? High availability? Good backup set? You mention XenServer. If you are using XenServer, I strongly suggest using one of the support options mentioned over at XenServer.org. XenServer does some things in the area of snapshoting/backup which is not part of Xen Project (XenServer b...

    zhangchengfei, Problems coding against Mini-OS need developer input, which we don't see much of this forum. I suggest asking your question in the xen-users mailing list, which is monitored by some developers. You can find information about using xen-users here: http://www.xenproject.org/help/mailing-list.html Russ...

    Eric, I am no expert in this, but I don't think you can specify a network using the technique you are using. This documentation suggests you can only specify a single address: http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/man/xl.cfg.5.html Sorry but it's not exactly clear to me what you are trying to accomplish by this. I may be unava...

    Eric, I've found a couple different approaches to this subject. Not near a test machine right now, so I can't say which is better. First is an entry from the Common Problems wiki page, which seems to be fairly old: http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_Common_Problems#How_do_I_change_the_resolution_of_Xen_PV_domU_vfb_graphical_V...

    Ingrid, I strongly suggest taking this to the xen-users mailing list. You need developer input on this and you are unlikely to find it here. We handle simple questions on this Q&A system. Issues about special compiles are more complex than the things we deal with here. I do see references to people working with uClibc in the past, ...
