I do not understand why I have this error message. Is this a configuration or use error, or also a bug? I don't know.

The error is (original code) :

I'll assume it does solve your issue -- If not please reopen the bug by setting its status back to New.

From DanPrince:

I think this may be a configuration issue. The current nova xenapi code requires that nova-compute be run inside a VM on the actual XenServer host machine it is controlling. If you do this then you should automatically have the /sys/hypervisor/uuid file available for nova-compute to read.

The nova xenapi plugins (which get installed on the XenServer itself) use this to create and mount a VDI device in the nova-compute VM where the raw image data can be written.

Hope this helps.
