When a VM is started and for some reason the hypervisor exits with an error, OpenNebula keeps it in boot state.
Two possible ways of reproducing this error are:
-Booting two machines with VNC in the same port
-Creating a VM with 1MB of RAM

I could not reproduce this issue. In my logs I get:

Sat Sep 4 15:18:50 2010 [VMM][I]: STDERR follows.
Sat Sep 4 15:18:50 2010 [VMM][I]: error: Failed to create domain from /home/ruben/Virtual/one/var//12/images/deployment.0
Sat Sep 4 15:18:50 2010 [VMM][I]: error: internal error process exited while connecting to monitor: inet_listen_opts: bind(ipv4,,5902): Address already in use

The VM then proceeds to fail state.

Maybe there are other reasons for this. I am closing the issue, and will reopen if needed. THANKS for the feedback!
