Subject RE: Getting CRAZY for having a cloud working!
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 12:58:15 GMT
Remember the first step is to see if these steps are applicable to you.

Meaning in my case when I ran a find in xenserver console I was not able to find the vhd-util
tools.
Meaning there should be zero results for
>> find / -name "vhd-util"

If the patches are already applied (the steps won't help) you might it them in
/usr/sbin/vhd-util
/opt/xensource/bin/vhd-util
