I installed OpenStack nova on Ubuntu 13.10. The compute node is running Ubuntu 13.10 with xcp-xapi installed. When I tried to create a VM, nova complained said "Operation not permitted". In Dom0 syslog, I saw the same error.

The error text is attached below. nova-compute.log:

2014-03-01 19:26:49.893 1976 TRACE nova.compute.manager [instance: d7846c4a-44d0-4915-abee-591f1ab8e5f6] Failure: ['INTERNAL_ERROR', 'Xenctrl.Error [ memory 7640216 KiB free; to be scrubbed 0 KiB; total 16343 MiB]: 1: Operation not permitted']

Dom0 syslog:

Some more tests shown that this is a bug in XCP. I tried to launch a HVM VM in XenCenter and got the same error.
