I've seen this when using a kickstart URL that includes an ampersand. It appears
that the input to this field doesn't get URL-encoded and thus fails the XML
validity check. In order to make it work I had to replace ampersands with
%26amp%3b (that would be [ampersand]amp[semicolon], hex-encoded)

Comment 3 Ronan Waide 2007-04-16 16:03:30 UTC
I just noticed the error text I got for this was slightly different, so it may
not be the same bug after all:

libvir: Xen Daemon error : POST operation failed: (xend.err 'Invalid
configuration unexpected EOF')

Hi, this is a pretty old bug, and I'm pretty sure that the destroy device issue
was fixed a while back (can't find the reference though). Are either of these
issues still present?

Comment 6 Bernard Johnson 2008-03-13 04:16:04 UTC
I haven't been working with Xen as much as I was then, but I have not recently
seen it.

Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2008-03-13 13:44:52 UTC
I'll close this as WORKSFORME then, if you encounter this issue in the future
please reopen.
