Re: [Xen-users] Nested virtualization instabilities

Thanks. I will re-post at xen-devel and add both to CC, per your suggestion.
This is Intel, and to clarify things:
Host (physical hardware): is host.
Nested hypervisor (level 1 virtualization): is the domain that crushes
Nested VM (level 2 virtualization): is the domain that as soon as started (using HVM on the nested Hypervisor) causes the nested Hypervisor to crush.

The guest Xen is crashing, or the host Xen? I think the guest.

Nested virt is currently a tech preview and it certainly looks to me
like you've found a bug. Please can you send your report to xen-devel@.
See http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Reporting_Bugs_against_Xen for some
additional hints on what to include (actually, this report seems like a
good start).

I don't think you said if you were using Intel or AMD processors, but
please CC the relevant maintainer as well as the list:
AMD: Suravee Suthikulpanit <suravee.suthikulpanit@xxxxxxx>
Intel: Jun Nakajima <jun.nakajima@xxxxxxxxx>, Eddie Dong <eddie.dong@xxxxxxxxx>
