Was just about to edit my post. Finally remembered that ESC will show me the shutdown messages.
Hanging after "Stopped Systems Management Data Engine"
Yes. ISO storage is mounted from a TrueNAS VM, and now it makes sense.
Homelab, single host. Running a Dell R510. All VMs manually stopped.
When shutting down the host, the progress bar moves a bit then hangs. I've left it for up to 30 minutes before forcing a reboot via the iDrac.
How can I disable the graphical start/shutdown screens so I can see what processes are hanging? I've tried changing ttys, but am not seeing anything of interest.
FWIW, I've not seen this on my production cluster, which is running on R710s and R640s.
So I'll leave this here for posterity... while the pre-built VM images don't seem to want to work, building my own image using Debian 11 is working great so far.
So, no problem with XCP-ng/Xen, just with the image built by the GNS3 team.
Thanks for the responses Oliver, much appreciated.
Yeah, have nested mode enabled. It is an older CPU (L5630), but seems to work just fine with other hypervisors. I'm finding very little information other than the GNS and/or EVE-ng team wanting to blame Xen for poor nested virtualization support.
I'm going to try again after I re-apply the 8.2 update. I really don't like posting without being up to date, but in this case, nested virtualization seems to be a fairly mature feature that hasn't changed much for a while.
Then again, maybe I'll just try it on my production pool, which is running more modern processors.
Still plugging away at this. I've patched XCP-ng 8.1 (had a failed upgrade to 8.2 that I'm also working on). Anyways, here's the xl dmesg following a crashed VM.
I've also tested nested virtualization by installing XCP-ng in a VM and installing a VM within that. Worked just fine.
Not sure what's next other than trying again after upgrading to 8.2.

Wondering if anyone has had any luck getting the GNS3 VM to function under XCP-ng. I've tried both the vmware and hyper-v images and neither one wants to work, though each works flawlessly under player and hyper-v.
Google search has not been kind. The best I can come up with is something like "Xen has problems with nested virtualization," but nothing really all that helpful to get it working.
In short, any time I try to fire up QEMU, the intermediate VM crashes with no log entries or even a message from the kernel on the console.
I'm sure I did something wrong, but not sure what...
Decided to update the pool yesterday. The whole thing went very smooth and we didn't drop so much as a phone call or database transaction.
Simply moved all the VMs around to empty a host, then the 2nd and 3rd. Went very smooth.
Today, I'm sitting here staring at the daily delta backup job, and it's been running for 11 hours and have transferred some 400GB so far. Normally, the daily backup takes 20-30 minutes and transfers between 15-30GB.
What did I mess up?
Well crud, just read the thread from a few days ago about "backups failing if one host is down."
Reading your responses to that, I now understand what happened. Even after changing masters, XO was still connecting to the old master, which re-directed it to the new master.
When the old master went offline, XO continued to function, but when the backup job was launched, it tried to connect to the IP of the old master.
I like that XO will redirect itself when connecting to a host rather than the master, but in the event that XO changes the master, shouldn't it be able to update it's own configuration?
I inadvertently fixed it, but didn't take any notes.
Changed master using XO. XO still sees all 3 hosts.
Detach old master, power down, fixed hardware issue, re-install XCP.
When I tried to add the host back into the pool, I found that it was still listed on the servers page, but saw no way to re-connect it, so I deleted it.
Now the entire pool is missing?
*** Now I know that servers and hosts are two completely different things. Odd nomenclature, but I can deal with it.
Re-added the new master server, now the pool is back. Added the old master back and joined it to the pool, and all is good.
I'm sure I missed something when changing masters and removing the old one, but not sure what. I would think that changing masters in XO would change all the things that needed to be changed. Guess not.
Had a hardware issue, so I changed master to another server in the pool, evacuated all the VMs and detached the host and removed it from the pool.
Backup jobs in XO started failing with an error about not being able to connect to the detached host: Error: connect EHOSTUNREACH 172.23.6.101:443.
Of course it's unreachable. The master was changed and the original server was removed from the pool and taken off line.
So, what did I miss? I know it's not a lot to go on, but this is all I'm seeing. Not sure where else to look.
@darkbeldin Guess you didn't follow... if I have 14 days worth of snapshots from XO stored on the NAS and the NAS has 14 days worth of snapshots for the dataset itself, I can then roll the NAS back 14 days, then the previous 14 days worth of XO snapshots are there.
None of that matters though. You say you're replicating as well. I assume you're using rsync or some other mechanism?
I like the idea of daily and weekly backups though. You storing all that in the same place(s) on your NAS or do you create separate datasets for each?
Started out with a daily backup job using Deltas and 14 days of retention.
Added ZFS replication between my TrueNAS boxes, which requires snapshots. If I use 14 days worth of snapshots, this gives me up to 28 days of backups.
I'm not saying that this is overkill, but it really does seem rather convoluted when you consider how it all works under the hood.
What is the proper balance here?
The deeper I go, the more I learn. Thanks for the straight forward answers!
When I'm done with my migration from Hyper-V, we'll have just 4 hosts, so doing it all manually isn't a huge issue.
Is this something that XOSAN would resolve?
I seem to be missing something, and Google is telling me there aren't any great matches. After scrolling through a few pages of results, I agree.
When starting the rolling update or trying to put a host into maintenance mode, I get these errors.
I can migrate VMs manually, so not quite sure what I'm missing or how to begin to troubleshoot this.
