Multiple resize problem on XenSever6

Hi all,

I'm experiencing the following problem doing a short term multiple resize test using XenServer6 as hypervisor. On first resize everything works as expected. If I do another resize a few minutes later, I receive an error about "VHD coalesce attempts exceeded" on destination host. Here's an extract from nova-compute.log:

On the hypervisor's /var/log/SMlog I can find errors like this:

Can someone give me some advice about this issue? Is it something related to the hypervisor? Do I need to wait longer between a resize an the other?

Thanks a lot Giuseppe

I've got problems runningu multiple resize on XenServer5 too. Can someone confirm it is possible to resize the same machine more times in a short time interval?

I can confirm I'm not having the problem anymore. My env is XenServer6, nova Essex (milestone 2 and 3) and images built not using xenconverter's OVA. A huge thanks to Tod Deshane and Paul Voccio for their help and patience: they can barely imagine how much I owe them :-)

Regards Giuseppe
