    hello, iam running xen on my little box but for some reason the domU sometimes remounts with an read only filesystem.

    i have to run fsck and reboot the domu everytime this happens, could that be a hardware failure and an incomming harddisk crash ?

    Could well be a sign of an error, either on the dom0's filesystem if your domU's filesystems are files, or on the physical disk if the domU's filesystems are using it directly.

    In any event, there should be some hints recorded in your log files. Check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages (and any variations of those files that have been rotated) on both the dom0 and the domU.
