Thanks for reply... I will read it first.
Do you mean p2v drivers is in xs-tools.iso?
fyi, all of my W2K3 VMs use 2-4 VCPUs.

Hi Agi,

1.1 did not detect that card. Previously I install XCP 1.6 on it, but my
VM (Windows) always hang randomly and hard to reboot/shutdown via
XenCenter, so I want to use XCP 1.1 to that server. How to compile
igb-4.1.2.tar.gz source code for XCP 1.1?

I had a issue recently with a win2k WM crashing after upgrade to XCP1.6. There has been an issue with win2k win2k3 vms that is explained in the post below (long post).


Summary :
* For win2k3 and above vms, upgrade p2v drivers.
* For win2k vms, short workaround is to have only one vcpus in the VM. (indeed, the new driver does not want to install on win2k per citrix/windows EOL policy). If you definitly need more than one vcpus in your win2k vm, you'll have to tweak a little more I guess.

If you still want to recompile, you have to install kernel headers from source iso, enable centos repo, install build tools and compile your driver. But I'd recommend to give one more try to XCP 1.6.
