Configuration

Hosting

I wanted to make this domU run the Solaris Shell Service but this relies on having a working OpenSolaris build for x86 PAE Xen.

NFS Problems

Pert and User:Bung have seen odd NFS client issues. Here's the advice of mrj from #solaris-xen:

23:09:18 < mrj> pert: the nfs folks asked the next time you see it hung for a snoop/tcpdump network 
                trace to see if the client is really sending requests to the server and if not, 
                then a kernel level thread listing at the client to see where it might be hung
23:09:37 < mrj> you can get a thread listing by doing the following
23:10:50 < mrj> echo "::threadlist -v" | mdb -k > /tmp/threadlist.txt
