KVM VPS created with specific template/ISO in SolusVM does not work - the VPS is online but the following error is displayed in VNC console:

CONFIG_TEXT: no bootable device 


The template or ISO file size is less than 1 kb on the slave KVM node:

# ls -l /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-centos-6-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz
total 5626384
-rw-r--r-- 1 qemu qemu        162 Aug 25 19:57 linux-centos-6-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz

This means the template is not fully downloaded during Media Sync process.


  1. Access the slave node via SSH
  2. Remove the template or ISO file:

    # rm -f /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-centos-6-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz

  3. Login to SolusVM admin panel
  4. Browse to Media > Media Sync 
  5. Switch to Create tab and sync templates between Master and Slave nodes by clicking on the corresponding template and node, e.g.:
  6. click on Create Sync Job button
