Fwd: Error: xc_dom_boot_mem_init: can't allocate low memory for domain
We have Xen 3.1.2 installed on RHEL5 machine and the dom0 have 1GB RAM where
as the available memory available on the server is 8GB.
I am having a problem in starting up a VM with the following configuration:
name = "slc5Test"
ip = "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
hostname = "some.domain.somewhere"
memory = "1024"
root= "/dev/xvda1 ro"
vif = [ '' ]
netmask = "255.255.0.0"
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'
on_poweroff = 'restart'
bootloader = '/usr/bin/pygrub'
The error I am getting with "xm create -f config_file" is the following:
Error: (4, 'Out of memory', "xc_dom_boot_mem_init: can't allocate low memory
I looked up in some of the mailing list archives and found that some people
had problems but didn't come across how to fix this.
Any help would be much appreciated.
