Hi Chavdar - the PVHVM console is on the serial port so you'll need to connect your domU TTY to it.

On regular xen tools you put a 'serial=pty' line in your config file. xl console should normally dtrt but  you can force it like so:

xl console -t serial $domid

I've not had any joy with this on XenServer (or XCP-NG):

[root@xenserver4 ~]# list_domains | grep `xe vm-list name-label="NetBSD PVHVM" --minimal`
15 | e2d4c021-9303-4264-f5aa-5f88cfbb1679 |    B H
[root@xenserver4 ~]# xl console 15
[root@xenserver4 ~]# xenstore-ls /local/domain/15/serial
0 = ""
 limit = "65536"
 tty = "/dev/pts/9"

Can the console be set to the standard emulated graphics console instead of serial as Linux PVHVM VMs do?
