XenServer: Hung VM
I’ve experieneced several instances where a VM appears to hang and is non-repsonsive, not only at the console level, but also to the XenServer Hypervisor and XenCenter. Attempts to force shutdown the server using xe vm-reboot or xe vm-shutdown fail with the error “Another operation involving the object is currently in progress class: VM”.
This has worked consistently to recover this VM.
1 – “xe vm-list” to get the uuid of the VM that is hung
2 – “list_domains” to list the domain uuid’s so you can determine the domain # of the VM above by matching the uuids from this output with the uuid for your VM from the previous command.
3 – “/opt/xensource/debug/destroy_domain -domid XX” where XX is the domain number from the previous command
4 – “xe vm-reboot uuid=XXXX –force” where XXXX is the uuid from the first vm-list command for your VM.
