Re: Re[Xen-devel] lease 0.8.4 of GPL PV Drivers for Windows


This looks very good indeed, was getting tired of waiting for redhat to put
these out..

I've tried this new version (only trying 0.8.3 before) with some success..

I couldn't run update on PCI Device to uninstall 0.8.3, but manage to
unsinstall Xen PCI Bus & install 0.8.4 with everything upgraded ok..

Anyway I'm allways getting "Windows has finished install new devicces, The
software that supports your device requires that you restart your
computer.." on startup.

I have two drives QEMU & XEN PV VBD, appearing even though I only have disk
= ['phy:/dev/VolGroup00/tcsxis03-c,hda,w'] in my xen config file. The two
drives look like their mapping to the same logical drive i've configured in

I get to chkdsks on startup everytime for c: & d:

Similar story for the ethernet, but I can disable the Realtec FV driver to
get around this one..

I can confirm the network latency is half on the PV driver, cool cheers,
down to 0.100ms vs 0.200ms from the dom0, and I get full 100MB speed over a
100MB LAN.. and 250MB to dom0 over bridged networks.

I'm having issues with this two disks though.. Any way to disable the FV
QEMU drivers?

Disk performance looks idential to FV drivers

This is on dom0=RHEL5.1 Xen 3.1.0-53.1.4.el5 
with domU=windows 2003 Standard + SP1
