HI all,
I have to run large number of VMs on my Debian Etch/Xen 3.1 system. The problem is that after certain amount of VMs are up and running, every additional VM I try to start crashes complaining it has no root device to mount. I guess the reason might be a problem with the loop driver, which somehow limits the number mounts. And, yes, I pass the max_loop=255 parameter to the kernel.
Any help is highly appreciated.
