Hello,

after updating a xen server, the new install of xen and xen-tools fails to start any of my domu instances.

What seems to happen there is xl or xenstore (not sure which one should do it) fails to properly start the scripts in /etc/xen/scripts to configure the backend services.
What I did so far is trying 4.6 and 4.5 of the xen packages. 4.6 does not even work at all (fails to create the hdd backends).
4.5 kinda works, it can create the hdd instances, but will fail to create vif instances. Starting a hvm guest w/o vif will work, of course then I have no network.
Another thing I tried is using systemd (to rule out udev), that does not help.
Playing with run_hotplug_scripts in /etc/xen/xl.conf does not seem to change anything to the better either :(

Any help is greatly appreciated.

currently installed versions of the xen packages:
Code:

[IP-] [  ] app-emulation/xen-4.6.0-r8:0
[IP-] [  ] app-emulation/xen-pvgrub-4.6.0:0

I did update to a mainline (4.4.3) kernel and this seems to have fixed it. Alas no real idea why the vanilla kernel works and the Gentoo sources do not :(
