I posted this to the Xen Mailing Lists too but figured i should post here as well. 
We are experiencing a odd issue after we built grub2 support.  The image we built works fine on some hosts and then just hangs on others.
I built grub2 as follows...
git clone
cd  grub
patch -p1 < xen-linux16.patch
./configure --target=x86_64 --with-platform=xen --prefix=/opt/grub2
make install
export PATH=/opt/grub2/bin:/opt/grub2/sbin:$PATH
Next I built the image as follows...
cat > grub-bootstrap.cfg << EOF
normal (memdisk)/grub.cfg
cat > grub.cfg << EOF
for grubcfg in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg /boot/grub2/grub2.cfg /boot/grub/grub2.cfg /boot/grub/grub.cfg /grub2/grub2.cfg /grub/grub.cfg /etc/grub2.cfg /etc/grub.cfg ; do
   if search -s -f $grubcfg ; then
      echo "Reading (${root}$grubcfg"
      configfile $grubcfg
tar cf memdisk.tar grub.cfg
/opt/grub2/bin/grub-mkimage -O x86_64-xen -c grub-bootstrap.cfg -m memdisk.tar -o grub2-x86_64 /opt/grub2/lib/grub/x86_64-xen/*.mod
This works fine on some of our hosts, but then just seams to hang on others.  When starting the guest i see the following...
address@hidden ~]# xm create -c /home/username/vs.config
Using config file "/home/username/vs.config".
Started domain username (id=34)
                                 address@hidden ~]#
Then it just hangs from their.
These hosts are CentOS 6 using the CentOS-Xen RPMS. Hosts are running Xen version 4.4.1-8el6 and still using xend with xm commands
Any idea what may be going on here? Or how i should go about debugging this issue?
