openbsd 6.4 as guest VM on Xen cannot detect disk

yeddahbi
Hello there,

I have been struggling to create a obsd 6.4 VM on xen(4.10.1) with HVM.
After booting from the CD (install64.iso as a virtual cdrom), the installer
cannot detect the disk to install the OS.
During the installation, the installer says: "Available disks are: none."

I already have a obsd 6.0 VM instance running for a while, I tried to do the
same with the installer from 6.0 (install60.iso)
The installer worked fined and detected the disk as wd0 device.

See below the boot console output of both versions (obsd6.4 and obsd6.0)

In the obsd6.4 output, I noticed the following timeout which could explain
why the disk is not detected.
    xbf0 at xen0 backend 0 channel 5: disk
    xbf0: timed out waiting for backend to connect
    xbf1 at xen0 backend 0 channel 5: cdrom

I tried multiple configurations of guest VM on Xen, but cannot find a way to
make it work with the 6.4 installer.

Any idea of what could going on?
Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Youssef

Re: openbsd 6.4 as guest VM on Xen cannot detect disk

yeddahbi
Hello there,

Has anybody successfully run the 6.4 installer on a VM running on a Xen
Host?
I tried enabling more logs during boot (boot_config->verbose) and got the
following logs (extract, not full log).
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this issue ?
Regards,

Re: openbsd 6.4 as guest VM on Xen cannot detect disk

Andrew Daugherity
In reply to this post by yeddahbi
I have no idea what is causing your backend timeout, but your VM
config would be useful information, and take a look at xend.log etc.
on the host for any related errors (if you have access to it). I'm
running OpenBSD 6.4 just fine under Xen; however my Dom0 is only 4.4.4
(dmesg attached).

Note that in your 6.0 dmesg, you have "wd0 at pciide0" vs. my "sd0 at
scsibus1" via "scsibus1 at xbf0"; the man page for xbf(4) indicates it
was added in 6.1, and that it takes over all virtual disks.  As a
workaround, you might try boot -c and disable xbf, which would
presumably present your disk via the emulated IDE controller.

Re: openbsd 6.4 as guest VM on Xen cannot detect disk

Hello,

Thank you for the reply and information.
I have also tried to use scsi controller on the VM with the same result. See
below the dmesg and VM configuration.

Also, since I do have access to the xen host, I have looked at the logs
under /var/log/xen and I found the following errors:

==> xen/qemu-dm-obsd_64_wks.log <==
xen be: qdisk-2080: xen be: qdisk-2080: error: Failed to get "write" lock
error: Failed to get "write" lock
xen be: qdisk-2080: xen be: qdisk-2080: initialise() failed
initialise() failed

I have also tried to disable xbf (through boot -c). It allowed the detection
of the disk and the installation went through, but at the next boot the disk
was not detected. I guess, I would need to save the boot config but I don’t
think it is the right approach. I would prefer to make it work without
having to disable xbf.
