Does anyone have Xenserver 6.5 and Openstack playing nicely?

Hello, My team and I are working on building a working Openstack environment using Xenserver 6.5, and have been running into a lot of issues. One of the most persistent is a problem launching instances using automatic partitioning due to “missing PV drivers,” despite the PV drivers being in place. If the image is deployed with manual partitioning, the problem does not crop up (though others sometimes do.) There are many other problems that have been plaguing us as well, mostly centered around networking. So my question is this, has anyone else working with Xenserver 6.5 and openstack encountered any similar problems? Has anyone gotten it working?

We're regularly deploying Openstack + XenServer, but I'm not familiar with the missing PV drivers with automated partitioning (assuming you're talking about resize?)

What guest and VM mode are you using?
