Re: [Xen-users] xen i/o errors

Thanks, that helped me begin looking for you.

Unfortunately going on these posts your hardware may not work with Xen out of the box:


No responses to a 2010 post is not promising, but the second of the two archived messages states that there is no hardware virtualization on the PowerEdge 2600.

Not sure where to proceed from here, I have never used server hardware.

Let's see now.

Xen version: xen-hypervisor-4.0-i386 (4.0.1-4)
Kernel: 3.2+44~bpo60+1 (debian squeeze backport)

It was all installed using apt-get (eg. the package manager).

The system I have xen troubles with is a Dell PowerEdge 2600 (32-bit,
2 x 1 Xeon. no Intel Vt-d) with a via_sata controller and two sata

Intel IOMMU, doesn't that require Intel Vt-d?

Please let me know if there is more information I can provide.
